Thanks for the kind words.
My current project is a M70 7mm WSM, McMillan A-5, Lilja 28" three groove 28" 1/10 twist, Jewell 1# Single stage. Optics is Horus Vision/USO Sn-3 3.2-17x44/58 H25 day scope.
Bullets to be tried are 176 Cartarucio VLD, and Barnes 180VLD. MV is a touch over 2800 with VV N165 and F215M or Win LRMP.
Should very interesting with Horus Palm Software and PDA.
Rifle is just off to the coater for Black Teflon.
<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">quote:</font><HR> Equipment:
Model 70 WSM Controlled Feed Action
7mm WSM - SHORT/FAT case technology
Barnes or Cartarucio Heavy VLD Bullets
Lilja Three Groove Rifle Barrel with 1/10 twist
New McMillan A5 Tactical Stock for M70 Winchester short action.
Jewel Match trigger with 1 pound kit.
Winchester cases w/F215M and WLR Primers and initially at least VV N165 Powder.
and for optics:
The USO SN-3 ERGO 3.2-17x44/58 with 30mm tube and with the Horus H-25 reticle as shown here.
Additional equipment includes:
PALM w/Atrag Software, Weather station, and Leica 1000 yard Range finder.
The 7mm WSM is capable of hurling the 176 Cartarucio VLD or the 180 Barnes VLD bullet (both with BC. roughly .700) at velocities approaching (or possibly exceeding) 2900fps.
My PC based ATRAG1S5 software predicts that when sighted in at 100 yards, this round at 2850fps 176 Cartarucio VLD ) should reach 1000 yards with 25.3 moa of come up or 7.4 MILS. This would be line 7.4 on the Horus reticle.
