gamehawker, you are killing me., triplets he says! Go for it Dude! hope all is well. just had a few minutes to get on line at my cousins house. I miss being on here everyday like i used to, but with all the house buying stuff going on, I am out of my norm for sure. well wishes to all, and somehow keep "Butterbean " straight, although I know thats asking a litle too much.

PS, there are a LOT of deer here this year, as the crops have faired well with all the rain. Ive seen some HEALTHY bucks around as well. take care my friend and neighbor. talk to you soon.

Glad you are doing well 7!!!! Did I tell you I hate moving!????!! After 30 some odd times, I wish I never do it again


Well cow
Elk was awesome but no kill!!! I had one at 60 yards and she turned away, I pulled back and my bow creaked... She heard it and ran!!! It was fun though.
Good times. Now it New Mexico to valles calderas for a bulk and Montana for a combo deer elk in November.
Hope y'all doing well

I had my new Magneto Speed out yesterday for the first time. I found that my 7stw was shooting slower than I thought.I have 80.0gr or RL25 behind a 140 BT with a Fed mag primer.I shot an average 3280, not what I was expecting.It should have closer to 3350.I shot my 264 Mag and a 22-250 and had good readings as expected with those, so a can't blame the crono.

What kind of groups were you getting at 3280?

I'm getting under 1/2 inch at 100. I have not shot longer yet, due to lack of time.This is a Sendero with a 26 in barrel.It should do better I think.My 264 is a SF2 and excedes what the Nosler book says.This rifle has been a learning experience for me thus far.I've loaded for alot of guns, Imight not know as much as some, but I'm not a rookie.

Under a Half @100 @ 3280,Here is what I would do ........Carve that load info in stone run a Ballistics table off of that load, Make a Dope Card and call it a done deal, Dont let the 70fps screw up an Accurate load,I've said it a hundred times, The critter your shootin at wont know the difference in the speed of the bullet

I believe you are right.Can't help wondering if something is wrong.Seems like others post here better results.I will use it like it is and it will be OK.

BUT,I do think Brux.Can't help it!!!

I think it's what we do.LOL
