Re: Berger Gen 2 ELR testing

We were shooting at 3700 feet and our target was 5900 feet. Looking at the ballistic solution and the actual number of moa used I believe we were in the 1020-1030 fps range on impact putting it under the wire so to speak. They stay super sonic so long it is hard to test them after transition with drops of 110 moa and more. I am working on a better way to do that though.

Re: Berger Gen 2 ELR testing

I've always thought this looked like a good solution to the excessive drop problem:

Going with steeper bases (45+ MOA) is one way to maximize the adjustment of a conventional scope that has ~100 MOA of travel. But if you need more than 100 MOA, eventually you need to sacrifice the ability to zero at close range.

Shawn,

Can you share your load data with me? I'd like to try these in the Edge you built me.

Thanks,

Devin

Re: Berger Gen 2 ELR testing

If you search "300 gr Berger Hybrid Gen 2" you will find the original post with all of the testing info, however the load I settled with was 92.0 gr h1000, cci250, -.005" off lands.

Re: Berger Gen 2 ELR testing

Found it, thanks! I'll give that load a try. It's basically the same load I use with the SMK's.

When are you going to be back in the shop? I tried to call the other day.
