Load is:

300 gr Berger OTM
93 gr of H1000
OAL by measuring from the ogive is 3.058"
Measuring from the tip of the bullet is 3.900". It is a single shot so I don't have to worry about them fitting into a magazine.

They are loaded .015" from the lands.

I don't shoot this load above 80 degrees as ejector marks will start to show. But I don't ever hunt anywhere where it is above 75 degrees so I am good. It is super accurate. This Friday, I am going to take it out to 1780 and see what kind of groups I get.

First 9 shots out of my 308 cleaning between each one. Fella beside me at the range kept telling me I was missing the target, lol.

Re: Groups that make you smile!

24-shot hot lap group during first stage of load development and break-in for my 100% factory Remington 700 5R .308 Win. This was shots 77-100 down the tube...

Overall corrected measurement was 1.286". I was so excited I wrote all over the target before remembering to subract the caliber diameter first. So, please ignore that.





It's amazing how well a gun will group once you break it in...

This is how it was shooting before I shot that group...I'm definitely not proud of these at all, but that's what it was like before, then it all of a sudden started wanting to act right...And shot the above group. LOL

Straight out of the box Savage 110 BA in 338 Lupua shooting 300 grain Sierras at 2794 FPS. The very first group I shot and I didn't even measure it.
