Re: New GAP Extreme Hunter in 6.5 SAUM

Gotta love the Magneto Speed, I was just using my V1 with the 6.5WSM, I like it a LOT more than the "normal" style chronos.


What Primer are you using in the SAUM?

That's a good lookin rig!

Also, might I ask where you got that chrono, and how much they run? I think that would be a handy setup to have, since most of my load development is off a bench at a semi-private range, and it would be a pain to setup a regular chronograph. That's a cool looking setup, I've never seen one before.

Thanks for the info!

That's honestly not as bad as I was anticipating from your post. I was figuring in the 4-digit range... But I think for $375, I might have to order me one in the next couple weeks.

Thanks again!

Re: New GAP Extreme Hunter in 6.5 SAUM

The whole set up is impressive indeed!! My 264 is not much faster, I know, custom chamber, fast barrel & all that stuff, but still very interesting velocities
