Ric

WHY DID YOU GO AND DO THAT????? You have any idea how much these photos are going to end up costing other folks??? [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I'm still working on making the little lady happy, I gotta get some money out of her soon.

You know... I know why Dollie looks so happy up at Harrisburg... You're not spending money or hatching plans behind her back... she knows because she's right there with you keeping an eye out.

Re: 300 WSM A5 By C.M. WOW!!

Here's the info.

200 gr SMK
62.0 grs H4350 Extreme
2800 FPS avg.

with the OPS Inc. Break this load kicks about as much as a 243 100gr bullet load. AWESOME!!!

Ok here's the trick all my, .308 caliber bullets like to be seated .020 off the lands. I tried further and the groups opened up.. went back to .020 and bingo back to little holes!

Now get this, the barrel length on this rifle is only 24"!

that's 914 ft. lbs @ 1000 yards
and a 317" drop @ 1000 yards

WOO HOO !!!!!

see Dave I told ya! I couldn't be happier!

Thanks again to Chris M.!!
