    I average 3350 fps with my 27 3/4" Shilen barrel 264 Wn Mag with 130 Nolser Accubonds. I just got the rifle last year and used it this past season on deer. Killed 4 from 98 to 275 yards. BANG FLOP. I am using 66.5 grs Retumbo, CCI 250, WW 7mm Rem mag case re-formed to 264 mag.

    At present I have a 30" 264 mag 1" straight turned diameter barrel on its way to me for a Remington BDL. FPS on a 85 grain should be right at 4,000 and 3860 for 100 grain. I don't think you can get a much flater path than that.
    pictures please.

    Nice rifle. Nice photo. Last time I checked it was sitting in my cabinet. Maybe I need to check again? It looks like this now. Don't own that Laminate stock no more.



    Here is the stock after paint. Waiting for the barreled action to come back from Teflon.



    Oh, it's not a 264 WM anymore either. 6.5mm-300 Win Mag



    3300FPS + out of a 140gr in a 24 1/2" tube now.

    What scope do you use on yours? I am just getting my .264 put together and was thinking of putting my Leupold VXII 3-9x40 on it.
