Re: Long range .30 caliber

I have built a WSM on a Savage Accu-trigger short action. It is shooting well, but to accomidate the longer heavier bullets, I had it specially throated long to my specifications. I can't use the DBM (detatchable box magazine) because the bullet is set out to long. I am finding that because it is set out so long, slower powders are the way to go. As far as velocity, if I can get it to some where in the relm of 2850 to 2950, it should knock down everything in the northern hemisphere out to about 1200yrds. I am using the 208 A-Max by the way. They only problem with the longer throat is I fore see a problem with getting to the lands with a smaller weight bullet. If you build in a 28"+ barrel, your speeds should be sufficient.

Hope this helps,
