Re: 6.5 saum

I will bet that the Chronograph is not set up parallel to trajectory. I use a magnetic level on my PACT chronograph to true it to the ground. If the set up is anything but parallel, then the distance is less between sensors and the readings will be high. His bayonet style chronograph is even more critical because the distance between sensors is so small. I have sensors 24 inches apart with the PACT. The Ohler has sensors at 36 inches and then at another 36 inches.

Another test would be to see what the software programs say. What does Quickload say?

When H-1000 was introduced, I bought 8 pounds immediately for use in my two pre-64 Model 70s, one with the original 1958 Winchester 26 inch barrel and one with a Krieger 26 inch barrel. 3180 (still under 3200) was the maximum I could load and get the primer pockets (Norma 7mm Mag brass) hold for another firing.
With 129 Hornadys it was hard to get to 3300 fps and reload the brass with H-1000.

Re: 6.5 saum

Im back in town and unthawed, the Icebreaker was a great time as usual. The Xtreme Hunter is just at its debut, Im not one to just throw a product at guys without a year of testing. Yes I have over 3400 rounds on my rifle now and its still shooting sub 1/2" Bryan Yeung on Team GAP shot one to 2800 and it was still in the 1/2 " range. This is proven. Its not a real secret its about Pressure!! The 308 runs at at pressures of 53000-58000 PSI I wanted to find a case that would make 3100 with a High BC Bullet at that same low low pressure. The Saum was wat we landed at with lots of testing. With a 140 JLK I could get 3080 FPS with only 53000 PSI I shot this load for a year, guys there are many to witness, I shot this at Lonestar, Snipershide Cup, PTS, Maammoth, and Nor-Cal I shot this at last years IceBreaker, and this years as well , with alot of practice in between, all on the same original Barrel. It still shoots great. The same load is now 3020 but with 63 grains of H1000 and the 130 Berger im getting 3180 in this same warn out Rifle with that group at 1157 to prove it still has some life. Guys this is Legit its about pressure!!!! This cartridge is Game Changing and the Xtreme Hunter is the only rifle a Guy needs in N America.

2 guys now have commented after shooting one. both Quotes were Identical!!! " This is the Deadliest rifle Ive ever shot"!!! Both guys are far from Amateur!

this is right from George himself,

he has actual equipment to run pressure test not just computer programs. This is not just an idea that was thought of last week, with over a year of testing involved. if you would just go and take the time to read the thread on the hide it is spelled out in detail. If you want to question how or valid his test procedures are ask him directly and you will get answers

I traded a 1911 for a tikka t3 300wsm and then promptly sent the t3 off to short action customs to have it rechambered to 6.5 saum 4s when it gets done i'll post some pics and the first trip to the range.

I can't wait to hear how it turns out.

I've been thinking of doing the same thing.

Can I ask how much they're charging for the conversion?

Re: 6.5 saum

It's about $2300 all said and done. It will get a new bartlein barrel, manners stock, action truing, barrel threaded for can and chambered, Cerakoted and pillar bedding. Prices are pretty consistent with other smiths rates. You could keep it in the same factory stock and just get a new barrel for $300 and true the action and chamber for 500.
