Lazzeroni has a new 30cal boomer out.Said to push a 150gr bullet at 4000fps.Anyone read any reviews other than Ameriacn Rifleman?

Re: 7.82 Battlestar

Have heard nothing more then you about the intial idea posted on his web sight.

It appears the poor boy will never learn. 130 gr case capacity and he is trying to hit 4000 fps with a 150 gr 30 cal bullet.

Why would be not put in a 1-10 twist instead of his 1-12 or 1-14 and shoot a 200 gr Accubond at full tilt speeds.

Lazzeroni is loosing ground in the ballistic world and the reason is because he has hobbled his rounds to 600 yards and thats about it with the light bullets.

If you want a Lazz round have the rifle custom build by someone else with the proper barrel twist for heavies and you will get vastly superior performance.

Just my opinion.

Re: 7.82 Battlestar

I've been developing 30-378 rounds. It has a @120 grain capacity. I've really come to the opinion that with a 28 inch or less barrel that the 90 - 100 grain case capacity is better. Just way to much heat, blah blah blah just to gain a marginal amount of FPS over the 30 cal ultra mags

I've still got AA8700 and H50BMG to try. I've also only used 190 sbt and 220 grain match bullets. I do admit that someone as knowledgable as Kirby Allen could punch holes in my theory [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: 7.82 Battlestar

Kirby is right on. Why shoot a light bullet that fast when the heavy weights past 600 are the way to go!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Re: 7.82 Battlestar

Budlight,

I could hardly agree more with you. Even more so in factory 26" barrels where the top 300 RUM loads will hit 3200 fps with a 200 gr pill compared to 3250 to 3300 fps at most with a 30-378.

Unless your doing a 30" barrel and 220 or heavier bullets, the 300 RUM is a better choice in my opinion and appearantly yours as well [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] :grin!!

Re: 7.82 Battlestar

50,
i'm gonna venture a guess and say the reason is marketing.everyone that hangs out on here is geared for long range. but we only represent a very small percentage of the "market". when i mention even a 400 yd shot to anyone, they look at me like i'm full of bull.the thought of shooting at something as far away as 300 yds and not even having to figure holdover is appealing.the other thing is "speed" it's just like the bow market has been for the last 15 years.every new bow that comes out is 5 fps faster than the last one and everyone's got to have one of those.it's marketing!
