How far have you taken it out to?
This reply is a late one but better late then never.
Final load I have worked up is a follows:
180 SMK's seated to 5 thou of the lands
fedral215 gold primers
Velocity 3236 at 4800' elevation
ES in the high single digits never over 18fps.
1/2 inch groups at a hundred yards.
I have taken a elk in Wyoming at 400 yards with it so far.
My longest shots to date are at 1500 yards.
It groups very well at long distances.
I have found that the brass has to be annealed after 2 reloads to bring the neck tension back to spec.
The Norma brass is holding up well as I am on the 5th reload on this bunch of brass.
This rig is a blast to shoot.
