Re: 264 STW Loads

LTLR,

I know you have mentioned your use with the 130 sciroccos in your 6.5's. Any reason you are using the 129sst over those. I know you like to test a lot of different stuff as well. I have a 6.5x284 thinking about trying the sciroccos in. The speed you are pushing them is very impressive.
Thanks
Bob

Re: 264 STW Loads

I use the 123Amax in my 6.5 Grendel they shoot great. That's what they were developed for. You might want to try nosler competition new 123 also. It's shape is similar to the lapua 123 but from base to where ogive would touch the lands is .1" shorter I belive. Which will allow for max magazine length in my Grendel I belive. I have a 6.5 stw in the works also. Hoping to got it ready before antelope season.

Re: 264 STW Loads

I used the 130 scirocos for a few years and they are the best performing bullet on game. The heavy copper jacket prevented me from getting top velocity out of the stw. I was out of the 130's and tried the 129's because they were there and needed to be shot. I was very pleasantly surprised with the high velocity and accuracy. The bc is showing way higher than listed according to my drops. This rifle is a deer/antelope special for the desert to ride around on two tracks. It is just a fun rifle to shoot for this purpose and drops animals like lightning.

Thanks for the 123 info. I shoot the nosler cc in other calibers and really like those bullets. Did not know they were offering one in 123 grains. How is the bc with the 123 amax compared to the 129 sst?

I ha vent shot the 129's but the Amax is pretty spot on with the speeds I'm shooting them. I'm only launching them at 2630

I hope that jacket will hold together at 3700 fps. The sst's are doing great at high velocity.
