Are the bee's bad this year? Usually when it starts to really warm up the bee's get bad too.

That's something that has been really neat since the first day I got the AM. If you've got the horsepower to push the 200 fast enough and the barrel/twist etc. to handle it, then it's neat to see how fast it gets waaay down range. It is visible through the scope and you can hear the whack when you shoot, but watching it all on a video puts it into perspective better.

If you watch the videos and especially something like the branches on the ground in the upper part, you will notice that the camera moves slightly at the shot. Since I was alone I did the shooting and videoing so I had the camera set up right beside the bench and slightly ahead of my left knee so I could get to it. This meant the camera got some of the blast from the brake and it's just enough to make it twitch a little.

I thought they might be but where I was there were no bees and just a few flies and little gnats. I always hope for enough of a breeze to keep the bugs grounded a little bit. The breeze also makes the shooting more fun.

Dick,

I don't know where I got the AX idea but with that thought in my head it seemed that the bullet was getting down range quite quickly.

Its good to see that the 7mm 200s working well.

One of these years me thinks I'm gonna have to go to a different rifling in my 270 AM. The 3 groove is just a bit too tough on the WC jackets. The 169s do/did well but the 195s are another story, in my rifle.
