Re: .284 180 grn in a 7 mag?
I just got a box of them yesterday to try out. I've got a 9.5 twist in my model 70 and wrote Berger before ordering them asking if it would stabilize the bullets.

It will provide a stability
factor of 1.19 to 1.29 which is adequate for all normal shooting conditions. A 1-9 twist provides 1.33 to 1.43 at
the same velocities and environmental conditions. Seat the bullet out to touch the lands and I think you will find it
is an exceptionally good bullet"<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
I'm intending on trying H1000 and H4831 SC if this wind will ever stop long enough for me to shoot.
I've tried the 168 SMK and while they didn't do bad, the 162 AMax's have been shooting better. I've been hitting Jackrabbits out in the 400 yard range with them fairly regular the last few weeks, and at 800 yards, they seem to hit the target more frequently than did the Matchkings.
If I can kill that coyote from here, Will you walk out to get him?
