Re: 30 Cal 240 SMK and 1:10 Twist

Interesting, the program I have says 8 twist all the way to 2500 fps. before even a 9 twist will work. Must not be too terribly unstable, maybe just asleep, but with one eye still open. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Jon A, could you please post your accuracy evaluations regarding the 240gr smk in your 300RUM based on the 1-10 twist. Mine has a 26" tube and would be very interested to hear how well it performed for you...

Thanks in advance...

Squatch,
I'm gonna check with my buddy who just bought that LRP-1 in 300 RUM with the 1-10 Walther on it. He said he was going to handload some 240 MK's. I want to see how they do too. I want to find a 1K or 1.5K place to shoot if they work out good.
I'll post it at S.P. and here when I get some results.
Celt

Re: 30 Cal 240 SMK and 1:10 Twist

Celt, what part of Indiana do you live in? I live in extreme southwest Indiana. A friend of mine has a 300 RUM A.I. He shoots the 240 MK in a 1-10 twist 28" long Hart barrel. He has gotten hits on 18" steel plates out to 2268 lazered yards. He uses H50BMG and pushes the bullet to 3000 fps with very good E.S. and accurcy in the 1/4 MOA range. I am lucky, my freinds and I can shoot out to 2500 yards from my back yard into one of the many ditch banks here in southwest Indiana.

Jeff, good to go, would love hearing the results you get. Am also waiting to hear about your sucessful start up, as I have 2 candidates for make overs with your name on them...

Gary, that 300RUM AI sounds like a scorcher, keep knocking them down...

Gary,

Glad to see you made it over here! I talked to Geoff last week, sounds like your new .308 is almost done. Getting close to a keeper load on the RUM. My regards to Steve & Saint Rita. [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: 30 Cal 240 SMK and 1:10 Twist

Squatch,
I should be up and ready to go after the zoning gets squared away. Late August.
Although I do have some news. Email me we can talk.

Gary,
I live in North western IN about 30 min south of Valparaiso. or about an hour south east of Gary. Out in the farm country.
I have a 450 yd range at the shop / clubhouse. But it is hard to get any of the farmers to let us shoot 1K on the ditch banks.

My email is
celt2000@skyenet.net
Feel free to get ahold of me. I would love to shoot some looong range stuff.

Celt
