Tim,

Retumbo is made by Hodgdon and is their new temp insensitive extruded magnum powder. They just canned H870 which has made us all a little sad.

Good luck this weekend. Hope you get some good shooting in...

Jerry

Re: .244 Ackley and 1000 yards

Hi,
FYI results are in of todays shoot. The .244 was a bust because the tapered mounts had not arrived and ran out of elevation as we were sighting in with the standards in place. Will try again after mounts changed.
The 7 sighted in and shot first ten rounds very well until something happened. Then it walked right off the paper. The thin barrel was very hot and the problem came after an attempt was made to adjust for windage. The spotter said it might be in the scope. He also said that this weapon was a hunting rifle. I agree. First couple of shots from a cold barrel are right on the money.
The 06 Ackley did the best. It shot in the black with a couple of X's. Only fired 10 rounds including sighting in. I think It will make a good shooter once I find the right combo.
1000 yds is great and am looking forward to going it again.
Thanks to you guys!
Tim
