Re: 7mm 175 smk?
I received my .175gr.smk a couple of days ago and so far I am dissapointed [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img] I weighed 10 of them and they varied five tenths of a grain [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img]
so I grabbed 10 162gr. Hornady Amax bullets and weighed them. they varied zero tenths [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]
anyway I loaded up the 175 smk's with 71 grains of Magpro and headed out to my range
I cronied 5 of them, average velocity 3150 ES 24 fps.Then I shot a 5 shot group at my 700yd. target and was dissapointed.... 5-1/2" of vertical spread 1-1/2" of horiz. spread!
I don't necessarily blame it all on the bullets so I'm off to try A3100 and Retumbo and back off on some Magpro powder.But it's looking like I will end up back with the Hornady 162
I'll see what I can do about an aactual BC
I was in kind of a hurry the other day but it appears to be better then they state.
without God their is no hope for this country
