Re: Cold Bore Challenge

I like the idea of this. Very cool. I went out this morning and tried one at 675 yrds.

Missed. 8 inches low. Think I will get a little closer next time.

I see a new scope in my future...with 9x max I feel I could use more power at that range. no excuses though.

Did I miss what you are using for optics?

Re: Cold Bore Challenge

The last 2 days I have been shooting Berger 168 VLD's With RL-15 powder. And that is a load I have NO experience with. I am not blaming the results on that. But check this out

Here are some groups I shot after the Cold Bore shot with my original load with a 168gr SMK with Varget powder and the VLD RL-15


SMK< 5 shots each >VLD






Day #6 is uploading now

Re: Cold Bore Challenge

Was that Berger load worked up or just a load you loaded about where you thought it would shoot well?

I realigned my scopes on my 223 and 300SAUM and mechanically centered them yesterday and this morning I shot them with loads that have worked well before.

I was very pleased with the results and will be shooting for groups at 100, 200, and 300 if I have time tomorrow morning. I got rained out today but tomorrow looks better. I'll have some wind but then shooting without wind is boring... Well... Sometimes it is... ;)

Good shooting. You should probably stick with the Match Kings. LOL

Re: Cold Bore Challenge

The VLD load was just a wild guess. haha No load development at all
