    Doug, the rig looks nice, fast and sleek. How fast are those bergers moving? You can probably take a whitetail over a 1000 easily. That's a big bullet.

    Per the Shootin Chrono (which I don't exactly trust) I'm getting about 2925fps. I could push them to almost 3000 but they shot so good at 77 grains I stopped. Hopefully I'll get out this week and confirm my drop at some distance. Looking at the charts they should still have about 1124 ft-lbs at 1000yds.

    Thanks,

    RH

    That's actually not that far off. I'm shooting the 180g Berger with 79g of Retumbo out of a 27" Tube at 2989fps being a 10 shot average with the sd being 12fps.

    You have a nice rig, I have the same scope on my 7stw it has the Varmit Hunters reticle, helps with follow up shots after dialing it in if necessary. Yours also looks similar to mine, but mine is glossy not matte.

    Later,

    Dan

    180 grains hitting at a little over 1000 fps sounds like a hammer! The whitetail will feel like a sudden heartache and not know a thing. Not a bad way to go when you think about it. Dinner is served.

I will shoot some factory loads to break in the winchester then reload the brass for both guns. Good info here thanks.
