OK so I have way to much time on my hands. That and I test my loads out of my garage and shoot out to a 1000yds just 5mins from my house. It's a rough life . So I started by testing the 165gn matrix at 1015yds. My exbal pda gave me up 26.00 moa for 4200ft elevation with 2760fps. I ended up going up 28.5 moa to get to the target. I had to put in a bc of .6 to get the right correction for this range. I then came in to 595yds using the same bc of .6 it was a first round hit. I then shot a three round group at 300 with the same bc of .6 grouping center height and off to the left because of the wind.
So my over all conclusion on these bullets is as follows.
The accuracy of these bullets is great. The bc is off by a ways for my velocity and rifle. In a 26in barrel the velocity of 2700+ can be achieved easily with the right powder. As for if they are worth the extra money and weight, I personally do not believe they are for me. I have found a more accurate combination of 150sst H4831 shooting 1/4" groups all day long. The velocity of these round are a little fast at 2880fps with lower pressures. And maybe the best the price for these bullets are much less allowing me to show more. I know the 150sst will do great at long range as I have shoot a lot with them. This is just my opinion and every person should see for themselves if these bullets are right for them.
can some one please post a picture of there load. I would love to see what a 165gr vld looks like in a 270. and the 175gr for that matter.
Years ago I got these Wildcat .277 vld 169.5 grain I loaded them with 57.4 gr of H1000. I just called it good because I only had 100 of them and could never get anymore. It was not stressing the primers. I home moly coat.
