600 yard 30 Wolf performance

Some of you may be interested in this.

Using the 178g AMAX over 95.5 grains of RL25, I shot the following groups. I believe the speed to be around 3450 fps and I'll check it soon.

Yesterday I shot three 3-shot groups with the Wolf at 300 yards. They measured .742" (.236 MOA), 1.082 (.345 MOA) and 1.142 (.364 MOA). Average of the three is .317 MOA.

Here's a pic of the smallest group.

Today, I shot one group at 600 yards. With a 2-3 mph wind switching from my back, I fired three shots into .742" (.118 MOA). The fourth opened the group up to .942" (.150 MOA) and the fifth (I missed a wind switch) opened the group up to 1.642" for a grand total of .261 MOA.

Here's the group...

Needless to say, I'm absolutely thrilled with the performance of this rig and the load. This is fun!

    DO NOT post any more info on your 30 Wolf as I don't believe we (me and perhaps several other) can resist much longer and it's going to cost more money!!

    I don't want to buy another rifle just now and I've been trying to avoid getting excited about this offering, you are not helping much with posts like this... [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]


    Hell, it's too late anyway, I'm hooked!!

    Who built the rifle?

    I NEED one in a tactical setup, repeater (magazine fed) with an mag box long enough to allow for full length bullet seating. I'd prefer a barrel 32 inches or shorter.

    Who do I call and what the problem with loading dies an forming. (I generally use Wilson dies.)


    As long as you've enticed more folks than just me, how about trying to arrange a group purchase for the rest of the guys here that NOW GOTTA HAVE ONE.

    Re: 600 yard 30 Wolf performance

    s1 I have been intrested in a 30-338 Lapua mag improved for quite some time. I just did not know who I should see about it or how to get started,so I just waited for a while to see what would fall out of the sky. I have been reading about your 30 wolf and I think that I would like to talk to you on the phone. I know what I want, but I want to run it by you and see what the pros and cons are. I am not a computer wiz and would like to talk to you, is there a way?
