Re: Long Range topic on Accurate Reloading

Isn't it great, I really do look forward to those discussions.

I actually believe we converted a couple of guys on the "neverending" MatchKing thread.

Re: Long Range topic on Accurate Reloading

Indeed I can appreciate that the best test is personal experience, so I will try the MatchKing (on game animals), and I apologize for any offense taken at my comments. (I've shot thousands of these pills at paper targets, so I've got good dope on them for certain...)

It's a bit troubling to think that Sierra is giving out mixed messages, as some of us trust in the advice from these "respected" sources.

Not wishing to reinvent the wheel, I trust in the truth of certain statements, like "don't fire your rifle after you've stuck the muzzle in the mud", rather than trying it out to see what happens.

But this MatchKing thing appears to warrant personal experience, and I bow to your firsthand knowledge gents.

And maybe it's time to try the Hornady AMAX too, because it's a fine long range bullet (at least to 1,000y in my .308).

Re: Long Range topic on Accurate Reloading

Nate, what load for the 308 are you using with the A-Max? PS. Have fun with your rowdy discussions over there, they'll come around some day. Did I ever compliment you on how diplomatic you guys are? Wow!! Timex tough.

Re: Long Range topic on Accurate Reloading

I thought that Mk thread is very interisting. To bad Bill T isn't playing any more. As you can see we try to give them good advice over there some guys will not belive it no matter how hard you hit them.
