Lazz 308 patriot accuracy

Anybody have one, How accurate is the load? both reloads and factory loaded. Ballistics look great, but I did notice the scope height at 2". How would this affect the numbers. Would only be used out to 500 yds or so.

Bike Mike ,,,,,,

the Lazzeroni Patriot is VERY accurate, and VERY fast for a short-magnum ,,,,,, ((fastest 300 short mag in the world to be exact)))

best powder is reloader 19, spittin the Sierra 168gr HPBT match, lubricate the bullets if possible and use the Fed 210M primer (not 215)) ,,,,,,,

Re: Lazz 308 patriot accuracy

The Patriot is awesome as John stated & as he said, it is capable of incredible accuracy. RL-19 is a very accurate powder for sure, but my personal findings show that RL-17 produces a substantial velocity increase. I've always used 215M primers, but John has talked me into trying my current load with the 210M's.

You won't be disappointed with the Patriot, it was a little difficult to get to feed properly, but we got'er done (started with a 308 action). The case is short enough to allow bullet seating w/o compromising powder capacity, but fat enough to retain maximum internal capacity.

All in all, a well thought out & extremely viable option.

PS- Brass is a little spendy but seems to last quite well.

Outlaw ,,,,,,

a good rule of thumb, is that when you lubricate a bullet properly with moly or NP3, you can drop back to a "slightly" faster powder for the same load, ((less of it of course)) to achieve the same velocity to pressure ratio, and generally get better SD numbers, and more consistent accuracy ,,,,

Re: Lazz 308 patriot accuracy

John, I wish I could help you with that one but I can't. I understand the concept of Moly for sure, but I don't know anything about NP3. With the velocity i'm seeing now with RL-17 & non-lubricated 168TTSX~3400fps. I'm not sure the gain would be worth it...maybe. I still intend to test the 210M, if I can reduce the SD & ES then i'll roll with them, if not, back to 'ol reliable.

I have no doubt lubricated bullets have the ability to create greater consistency. I just can't say, i've never used them.
