Re: 338 SST 225 grain?
Gentlemen,thank you very much,good info. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Matt, I´m using Vihtavuori N165 as well. I cooked up four loads to start with, two of which are around Vihtavuori max which is 6.28 grains. It should give 3050 fps or so, I will chrono these first to get some idea where I´m at and start a bit lower of course.
3000-3100 fps MV would fill my needs well. OAL is 3.655" which is 0.010" off the lands, they fit the TRG-S magazine.
Jerry,your impact velocity info is very good news too, exactly what I was looking for. Seems to fit the picture in this case, 200 to 600 yards is my practical hunting range so I´ll verify this bullet path up to 800 at least - if I find a low ES load in the first place.
Now,time to locktite those screws again. I will fix the bedding one day but now I´m waiting for a suppressor to get rid of the brake so I´ll need to take the rifle apart soon anyway. Suppressors are legal over here.
Isn´t this a great board or what? [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
