Re: My New Defensive Edge LRKM

On the crosshairs, I think the MOAR reticle is different thicknesses in different models. I think the MOAR is thicker in an NXS than in an ATACR. At least it looks like this to me but I need to verify this with NF for sure.

Load work up is done on the Terminator. Running just under 3200 fps. with 300 Bergers. and shoots very well. I got busy with work and put it on hold for now but am working to get all my brass final fire formed with full loads. Plus I will need a shoulder die soon too so thinking about that.

Have only sent 2 to 1000 and they grouped well, also sent some to a rock at 2500 here from the yard and I was on it in 3.

Jeff

Since it mounts on the barrel can you work up loads for accuracy at the same time you're chronoing or will it screw up the harmonics.... meaning different group size when removed?

I think that is dependent on barrel length, contour, bedding and probably some other things. But it didn't seem to bother this rifle.

It didn't bother my rifle either. I would imaging a higher probability of effecting your group as you barrel diameter goes down but, maybe not.

I have had it effect my thinner 6-7mm barrels, but not at all noticeable on my bigger 338 & 375 barrels
