Sackett,
You got it brother, Amen to that, we are justified- as if we had never sinned, humanly unthinkable that this was done for a sinner like me. Praise be to God!
Get that stw shooting and let us know what you come up with.

Hey 7stw and Fred Ea, Got some trigger time today(guess Im lucky that I have a range in my back yard).......7 you were right,I had room for more powder so I loaded my original load (77gr RL22) and 77.5 and 78 with 140 Barnes TSX and 215m's........had a 1/4 value wind......the 77gr set produced a.314 group 77.5 @.401 and 78 was .428 all at 100yds so we know whats going on there. Im tickled with the 77gr load,I'll back down some and see what happens.I know i mentioned this before but my bullet at the lands is3.2440 anmy COL is3.0160 to get it in the mag.......lots of jump but I guess at .314 I best not complain......what do you guys think about the COL........on another note I also shot my 22-250 today which has a Canjar trigger.....it was worth every dime.....sorry for rambling just really tickled with the STW

Like they say each gun is different you can't argue with that accuracy. I seat my 180 at
3.910 and 168 at 3.845 but have to load single shot. Kasey1

Bean, as far as OAL goes, your max is going to be about 3.665 +-. I usually set mine to box length, then fool around with charge to find it's sweet spot. My " node" on my #1 Sendero is pretty broad. Using the 140 CT, and 79.3-RL 22, she spits it out at 3366. I have never changed anything on that load since day one. ( why would I?) accuracy is in the 2's and 3's at 100, and sometimes nearly the same at 200. I have a target shot at 350 yrd, that measures 1.244 center to center. Have you chronoed anything yet? You are on the right track. Just watch and feel for everything.
