Re: 3.5x10x40 M1 or 4.5x14.50 M1?????


Accuracy with the XLC won't win my any BR matches but roughly 1/2 MOA or thereabouts. This is used as my deer load and not paper punching. With the XLC there is a barrel prepping procedure that I followed on the barnesbullets.com webpage and safariammo.com sites. I haven't used the 338 XLC before so I don't have any experience with them.

With XLC vs standard X-Bullets the TFC on the XLC does increase muzzle velocity about 175fps or so in my rifle. Bullet performance is predictable and there does not seem to be any obvious difference between the two.

Good Luck

verrocchio, when you said safariammo.com did you mean safariarms.com.

I purchased some ammo from safari arms in NY (Owner is John). Haven't tried it yet but I was wondering if you use the same guy and if you are getting 1/2 moa from his ammo.

Best Regards,

I'll second verrocchio's opinion on the M1 turrets. I'v got them on my 6.5-20 also, from Premier Reticles. An extra $65 well spent.
