    I snowboarded in Bend (Mt. Bachelor) for about 6 months after I got out of HS. That's a great state. I go to UCSB, about to get a degree in marine Bio. Will be going away to med scool at U of Illinois next year. Let me know how the Sendero treats you. It's the College student's custom rifle, and mine actually shoots better than some of the custom rigs at the gun club. Talk to ya soon...

    I got 2700. Don't quote me on the powder charge because I don't have my data with me but I think it was with 90 grains, and the powder was RL25. There were no signs of pressure so I may be able to get more velocity. You may try RETUMBO by hodgdon, IMR 7828, and other slow burners with the 300. I'm in college so I barely have time to reload. Please post data as you get it.

    This is a Hot load so work up to it:

    Model 700 LSS, Factory 26"
    Loaded to where they will just feed through the magazine - but not well.
    300 SMK
    92.5 H1000 (compressed)
    Federal 215
    2750 fps

    It has a bit of recoil to it. In this rifle it shoots .6 at 100, 1.1 at 200 and holds it together at distance.

    I am shooting a 210 Barnes XBTXLC behind 97 grains of reloader 22. Velocity is right at 3400 and it flattens elk like you can't believe and shoots flatter than a 300 weatherby! PS this is a hot load and shows pressure signs with uncoated xbullets. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
