338 Lapua AI shooting paper plates from 2350

I was testing a new load yesterday and had a couple rounds left after chronographing and shooting groups so I tried a couple shots at paper plates from 2350. The rifle was built by Aztek Arms and is using their T-338 action, Schneider barrel, McMillan A-5, Aztek bottom metal, Accurate mag magazine, and Shilen trigger. Posted is a three shot group using 300 gr SMK's and reloader 33 that I shot laying prone before trying the plates.

    Nice shooting and a great looking smoke pole. Could you share your load specifications? Grains, COAL, velocity, barrel length, etc. Your TOF was a bit quicker than I would have imagined it would be. Thanks

    This particular load was 105 grains reloader 33, Lapua brass, cci 250 primer, and 300 Smk. Velocity was 3035. Coal was 3.720. Barrel is 30". TOF should be 3.82 seconds

    Thanks for your reply. That tells me that RL-33 works very well in the AI. Now, if I could just find some of it.
