Re: Savage 110 fcp HS 338 Lapua Accuracy

i noticed that the bullet holes arent cut clean. is this from the bullets not being fully stabalized in such a short distance?

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

Re: Savage 110 fcp HS 338 Lapua Accuracy

I just got back from the range today and shot a .404 ctc group in 10-15 mph wind gusts with the same load for the Barnes Lrx at 100 yards. Vertical was about .115 ctc. The horizontal is what got me. I think its time to stretch her legs out. On longer range shots when velocities are approching 2200 fps and below would a shoulder shot be prefered over a behind the shoulder shot to ensure expansion?

Re: Savage 110 fcp HS 338 Lapua Accuracy

Has anyone loaded with Hornady 225sst bullets, if so can you tell me what the best group you got, and with what loads. I worked up a couple of different loads, using a couple of different powders. I used the H1000 and the H4831. CCI primers large rifle magnum. What is the best grouping people are getting at 200 yds starting point..
