It has been a few years since I posted about my 264 Win mag. It is a Rem 700 action with a Shilen CM 27 3/4" barrel in a Hogue full bed stock. I settled on a load of 66.5 grs Retumbo, CCI 250 primer, WW case reformed from 7mm Rem mag cases, 130 gr Nosler Accubond OAL 3.450 and it averages 3350 fps and shoots ragged hole groups at 100 yards. I have taken 7 WT deer with it now and I am impressed. All have been BANG FLOP and I have recovered only one bullet. It was taken from a buck shot at 111 yards. The buck was facing me with a slight left shoulder toward me angle. The bullet was placed on the edge of the scapula which is shattered and the buck just fell back on his butt and fell over dead. When I was cutting up the meat I found the bullet against the right ball socket in the ham. Bullet weight was 87 grs and bullet was a text book mushroom. First deer I shot with the 264 WM was a touch over 300 yards in a green soybean field. Buck came trotting down the edge of the filed and turned into the field about 15 minutes after it got light enough to see. He had his head down like a dog trailing. A hot doe must have gone across the field before it got light enough for me to see. I cranked the scope up to 12 and got on him quickly praying he would stop. He did, with a slight angled right shoulder toward me. I placed the cross hair in the center of his front shoulder. With my 3" high zero at 100 yards I would still be about 3/4" high at 300 yards. I squeezed the 2 1/2 pound trigger ever so slightly and BOOM POP almost at the same time was the sound. I thought "man that bullet got there quick." When the rifle came back down from the slight recoil the field was empty. Have you ever tried to find a deer in a HUGE green soybean field??? I looked for over an hour and went and got a friend to help me. I got back into the stand and directed my friend by radio to where I thought the deer was when I shot it. Turned out to be an optical allusion when you were out in the field looking back to the stand that had me looked too far to the right. I directed my friend right to the deer which he actually stepped on walking down the row of soybeans which they had covered up the deer. That buck fell literally in his tracks. He was laying with his legs folded under him and had his belly on the ground. Bullet entered almost exactly where I was aiming in the center of the right shoulder and exited just behind the left shoulder. Buck turned out to be a wide 6 pointer. He did not have any brow tines. That runs in the blood line in that area. If he would have had brow tines he would have been a nice typical 8 pointer. He made good hamburger.
