+1 on Bullet Flight

Shawn, Have you tried any Norma 300 RUM brass yet, for .20 cents more a case it would be a cheap upgrade over Remington if the consistency and quality are better. I just back ordered some so we will see.

Congrats on the +P its a real contribution to the LR shooting community to get a 300 grainer to those velocities safely on a rem 700.

Re: 2751 yard testing of the LRKM

Rocky Mountain - we have had very consistent results at subsonic velocities with the OTM, it is awesome. I am using 3 BC bands right now, a fourth may be needed for these extreme ranges but we have not had any issues that we could for sure pin on a BC problem.

264 WM - 3137 fps out of our test rifle, but a 30" hart is going to shoot them 3050-3075 fps all day long.

CA48 - We tried the Norma and found while the consistencey was great the brass was quite a bit softer than hte Remington causing it to drop 100 fps at the same relative pressure.

Have you considered using the A-Square 338 Excalibur? They claim 3600fps with there 200gr factory ammo which I would think that a reloader could improve on that.

Excellent work Shawn!
At that distance, are you using a GPS for ranging?
Very cool!
