Re: 338 lapua powder
Last friday I got the chance to shoot the 338 lapua out to 1550 yards which is my all time record distance. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] Before this my farthest shot has been 1150 yards with a 308 win.
I had some tuned loads using H1000 and the accuracy was phynominal. 1200 yard groups was 2-3" center mass, 1550 group was 5-6".
There was a 8-10 mph wind that the 300 grain matchkings (@2735 fps) bucked like it was a 3 mph wind.
If you don't believe the results don't worry your not the only one, I about pissed my pants when I saw them too, my friend had to pinch me to make sure I wasn't dreaming.
I am going to try to break the 1 Mile barrier soon. To say I am happy with the new rifle is an understatement, I look at it now as if it had magical powers. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
Still haven't played with any other powder and I don't know if I need to either.
