Kirby:

Sounds fantastic. Now if you could just get McMillan to come up with a stock, I know of a 270 AM that will get a pretty good workout. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] This is really a shot in the arm for the 270 AM as well as the 277 AM.

I'm glad to hear that the existing twists handle this big slug so well. There's gonna be a lot of critters very unhappy about this in the upcoming months.

I know a lot of us just sit around and drool over these new arrivals from up north and then go out and have fun shooting them. We probably don't really think about all of the time and effort that Richard puts into coming up with the slugs we get to shoot, and for that I'd like to thank Richard, again.!!!

Any rumors about something a little heavier yet, and maybe about .007" bigger in diameter???

Geez, just when things get a bit settled in my grey hair'd old knoggin'........

One of those Ivey's may well be in order [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

BJ & lerch, set your scope knobs for -112.23568 West and 43.58966 North max come-ups, fire 3 shots and I'll check my back pasture for creaters. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

SS7mm,

That stock should be here anytime I would hope. I will give it another week, 10 days and if I do not see it I will get ahold of McMillan and see what is going on. The rifle is all ready to be bedded, just no stock!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

Yes I agree, Richard has given us nuts alot to be happy about and at a very reasonable price considering the investment he has in bullet making dies for each of these crazy new ideas.

Then consider the other two jobs besides bullet making and its amazing what he gets done. More then I would!!!

There will be some heavy 7mms coming soon. I think he is still waiting on either a punch or jackets for the 225 to 250 gr class 7mm bullets. They are still in the works though!!

Good Shooting!!

Kirby,

At what range does the heavy slower bullets start to pass the lighter faster bullets? The ballistic calculater I was looking at shows the 130g 270 bullet at a muzzel velocity of 3850 to have 10" of less drop at 1000yards than the 195 at 3200fps(using a .950bc for the 195 and a .477bc for the 130). [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] According to this they would tie somewhere in the 1200yard range, not many people would ever be able to use these longer bullets to their advantage for hunting.

It must be a blessing to have the chance to shoot(hunt) at 1200+ yards. Here in SC where i live, to many trees! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

LTH

Take a look at the warhead delivery ratio not velocity. Throw weight is where it is at. Velocity is just for race cars.

In case you didn't understand what I said here it is differently. Go back and run your ballistic calculator with it set to momentum and see what you got at 1500yds with each bullet.
