Re: 60 grain nosler partition stabilization
Well, JB, first we have to get down to basics, which is I need a little more pertinent info: caliber would be a good place to start... [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
I haven't got a list of bullets in front of me, but obviously we're either talking a .257 bore, or a .243", and I'm guessing a .257? Here's what I can suggest. If the bullets won't stabilize, check the crown of the firearm. If it's damaged, you have some some insight to the problem. If it's not damaged, it's possible the velocity is too low; if I new the caliber, I could tell you. For a 6mm--it's actually normal if you were shooting bench bullets of up to 68 grains. For a quarter-bore, you shouldn't have any trouble. So, my first guess is it's something with the barrel; crown, misalignment, bad harmonics [although it normally won't cause keyholing unless it's severe.] I think we need a little more info, then someone can likely help you a great deal.
