Re: 220g SMK load for 300 RUM?
Have you guys shot these loads around 500 yards or more?
YUP. WHOLE WAY OUT TO 1K.
If so, what was the accuracy like?
FARTHEST GROUP SHOOTING WAS 800YDS. HAVE SEVERAL 5 SHOT 3/4 MOA GROUPS AT THAT RANGE.
Mountain Man, what was your OAL?
HA HA.....UUUHHHH.......LONG? TRUTHFULLY I DONT MEASURE OAL AS BAD AS IT SOUNDS. I LOAD A ROUND LONG AND SEAT IT WITH THE LANDS, THEN BACK IT OFF JUST A TAD. I HAVE A DUMMY ROUND JUST IN CASE, BUT ONCE MY DIE IS SET, I NEVER WORRY ABOUT MEASURING- JUST SET THEM AND GO. WITH ME ONLY SHOOTING 220'S OUT OF THAT GUN, I NEVER TO ADJUST THE DIE. I DO KNOW THEY'RE LONG ENOUGH THAT THEY WONT FIT INTO THE MAG, BUT ITS ONLY A TARGET AND LRH GUN ANYWAY, SO IT DOESNT BOTHER ME.

If it were easy, I wouldn't be doing it.
