I'm gonna measure it so I can program it in my BR2 and then I'll have drops out to 1400 I guess. Not that I can shoot that far. But might be fun on a yote or wolf!!

Thanks to Butterbean for the guidance and just telling me to do it...
These are 168 Accubond LR over 83.5 Retumbo seated to 3.612X
This is the Cannon or the Traveling STW as she was named several months ago... I think she will eat soon.....
By the way, edge to edge is .4 inches in that picture...
Mario
I'd say she's hungry. Congrats Mario.

Sorry Bob but that's what happens when you put a cheap scope on a heavy magnum.

The only possibility besides loose scope mounts/rings is she's busted.

You really don't want to waste money on anything lower end than a Viper PST or Leupold VXIII with magnums or sooner (usually sooner) or later things will come apart on you.

The new series buckmaster is trash IMO compared to the older ones. I've had a 6-18x40 buckmaster (older front focus series) on my 300 rum the whole time I've had it, and the riflescope was on my 7rum the whole time I had that rifle. It's taken 1,000+ recoil cycles from rum's and she's holding 1/2 moa groups with the current rifle. Neither rifle had a brake either. I wouldn't put the current series on much of a rifle though.

The only two scopes I've had go to hell were a vxII leopold 2-7 and an older elite 3000 3-9 that had been on at least 5 rifles and got torn up by my lightweight 375 h@h. I've currently got an older Nicon Monarch straight 6x ot it; been trying to kill that scope for a while-- won't die. The Leopold was tightened up by them and worked well until I sold it; the elite was replaced with a new scope for free.

Re: 7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner

I have a few questions for you guys... Here we go.

What effect on velocity will a clean barrel cause? Out of 6 shots (first shot the barrel was clean) velocity was 3080 from the first shot. All the rest were between 3111-3150 fps. This was using h1000 with 180 gr Bergers loaded at 76.5 gr out of a 28" barrel. But with the first shot being 3080 the ES was like 90 fps... NO THANKS!!

Was the first shots velocity so low because the barrel was clean or was it because the bore was cold?

I have heard from some where to always hunt with a dirty barrel.. Is this a example of why?

I then shot 4 more shots and the ES was 35 fps. How bad is 35 fps if shooting to 1400 yds??
