It says expected 8/4/13 on it. And if you go ahead and order it, alot of times (from my experiences) things get shipped alot sooner than the expected date.

Just trying to be helpful.

Re: Got My first real long range rifle 300 Rum need help !

you can get to 1 k pretty easy with 180's. We have shot steel at 1k with the 180 siroccos and they do the trick, but the 215 hybrids do it Much better.

When shooting a long range rifle, do yourself a favor and shoot a long range bullet. you don't need a 230 or 240, but if you have the horsepower to launch a 200-215, why not?

Berger 230 OTM's would also be nasty in that thing for LR target shooting.

I'm shooter Berger 210 VLD's in my .308 Win, and it's a pretty nasty load.
