Re: 300 jazz

That is one awesome looking rig and a good shooting one as well I'm sure.
Is 3150 the max velocity with the 210's or is it the most accurate velocity?\
Just wondering what the cartridge is capable of.

Re: 300 jazz

RockZ,
I am not sure what the top end of this cartridge is. Being as this is the first wildcat I have done load developement on, I am being on the careful side.
Got advise from Joel Russo on how to measure my brass expansion at the base of the brass to help determine pressure. Also, watched primer cratering and bolt lift . Also, payed attention to bolt pressure it took to rechamber a once fired brass in relation to headspace.
Based on the 10-12 reloads I have on the brass, with the primer pockets still holding tight,I suspect that the 300 JAZZ could be pushed harder. However, I am satified with the accuracy and velocity of both of my loads.
Again, my 210gr Berger load is at 3150fps and shooting 1/2 MOA at 725 yards,
and the 240gr SMK is at 2850fps and 1/2 MOA as well. Have not streched it out farther than that yet.
Nathan Dagley of SSG built me a very accurate rifle.

Re: 300 jazz

Thought I would post an update . I shot this group on Friday, the 18th.
It measures 2 1/2" wide and 1" of verticle @ 723 yards. My load was 83gr of Retumbo pushing the 240gr SMK. Trajectory validation at this distance puts me at 2840fps. I have since repeated this performance this morning. Shot some 3 shot groups with 83gr/83.5gr/and 84gr of Retumbo. All 3 loads shot 1/2 MOA or less, but I had alittle less verticle with the 83 and 83.5 gr load. I was shooting with a bipod and no rearbag. I used my hand as a rear support, as I left the bag at home.

Re: 300 jazz

I was talking about the man that did the stock. I know Nate. He has done work for me on several different guns including 2 complete units. I would like to get a stock done for the one he is working on now. Dan
