154 Scenar in 300 WIN MAG

does anybody have test or trial 154 gr Lapua Scenar with a 300 WIN mag at long range , BC seem to be just over 0.5 and light bullet as 154 can be launch at high velocity ( over 3250 fps ) , that perhaps a way to shoot far with regular chambering

Good shooting

I've used them in my 308 Win and the published BC seems correct as compared to Ballistic Program predictions. My new, soon to be finished, 300 WSM is going to shoot the 175 Sierra and the 155 (154 on your side of the pond) Lapua exclusively.

Externally the two bullets are quite similar, same (plus or minus) length and if I recall same bearing surface. I get about 2850fps I believe with the 155 in my 308 Win...could be less as my memory sometime makes up numbers to fool me.

Maybe Ric needs to run some through his new 300 WSM for the betterment of the entire population (take one for the team ya know)!

Michael's working with them right now in his 308.

Probably get 3700-3800 fps out of the 30-338 Lapua. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Re: 154 Scenar in 300 WIN MAG

Scenar jacquet are very strong and that couls be intresting to launch them at amazing speed

even if I dont reach 3700/3800 fps I can try 3250/3300 in 300 Win ag with 30 barrel , I have fit a 1 in 13 inch and want to test "light bullet" at 1 mile

good shooting

Do you think a 1 x 13 will stabilize the 155 Scenar??

Eric,

I know a guy out in New England who shoots the 155 Scenar in .308 1/10" twist...was shooting groups within the inner ring of a 1.44 MB floppy disk at 300 yds consistently..Also wonder what it would do at 300 Win velocities!!

Re: 154 Scenar in 300 WIN MAG

Right now the tests I am doing are incunclusive, so please dont take this seriously. Right now it looks to me that the 155 AMAX might be doing better for me than the 155 Scenar. I am getting good accuracy with the AMAX and not the Scenar. It also appears at this point, APEARS, that the AMAX is doing better in the BC department, I think MAYBE due to the meplat and BT desighn. Will know much more in a couple weeks. This is also out of my rifle and somtimes it defies all common sense!!
