Re: Newest rifle(s)
Took the rifle out for the first time, I picked it up yesterday.
32" finished length barrel 1x9.3 twist Mike Rock cut rifling, 416 Rigby length action, holds 4 338 Lapua rounds in the magazine. Chamber is throated for 3.710 on the 300 Sierra. Standard "Set" trigger from CZ.
I loaded with Reloader 25, 87 - 94 grains, velocity at 87 grains was just over 2700fps, at 91 grains velocity was 2860fps, 92 - 94 grains was a second trip to the range and it was too dark for the Oehler to function. It appears the 92.5 grain of RL25 will put me at about 2900fps. I'm going to try VV N560 and try for over 3000fps with it, I really want that 3000fps mark broken.
Accuracy is very good but no groups with a single load yet.
Rifle, sling, bipod (Harris) and scope weighs in at a few ounces under 17 pounds.
