I just happened to call Erkki Kauppi at Sako Finland this morning. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
I was asking about their experiments with TRG-S and SMK 300s and he said that he was looking at a paper in a wall that said 300 meters / five shots. And somehow it also said SMK 300 grain. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
The boys at the factory had been playing around with a standard TRG-S, there was one hole in that paper. No official testing. But I guess I can share this
He gave me the load without asking:
84.9 grains Vihtavuori N 165,velocity was 2630 fps. The pressure had been measured too, it was okay ,I forgot to write it down.Hmm..same with the primer brand... [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img]
So I will try my loads with that powder for sure,he said that N 560 might be even better.
My TRG-S has a custom Sako brake,out of the box it shoots 1/2 MOA with Lapua Scenar 250 factory ammo. I got it a week ago,since then I have been shooting and surfing the Net to find the best bullets to try... no reloading yet, the dies that I had reserved had been accidentally sold. Havenīt even chronoed it yet.
Nice caliber,huh? [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] What brand is your rifle?
EDIT: This load is over the max in Vihtavuori data book. E. Kauppi or myself are in no way responsible for possible problems,the test rifle was like this but no brake.
My new toy (could not help):
