the rifle i am working on will have a rock creek 1-8 t finished at 28" going to put it in a rem ulta mag action so bullet seating will not bea problem. reamer is set with 142 sierra at base of neck.
I was hoping to put a 140 3200 plus? 130 swift 3300 plus?
was just looking for starting points. I will try and let you know what i find out. It will be a month or so till i get everything put to getter.
With a 28" barrel, you should be able to reach those velocities. I can get 3200 out of my 26". RL17 will probably give you max velocity and good accuracy but I don't like the fact that all of the RL powders are very temp sensitive. An 8 twist should work well for the 140's....Rich
