Accubond 200 Versus 3/4\" Concrete Stake!!!

Gentlemen, I did not mean to hit this 3/4" concrete steel stake at 103 yards... but I did. 200 grains accubond out of my 300 RUM @ mv = 3150 f/s. I was testing a new lot of bullets, they're coming out some what slower... still hit that steel stake dead on and I thought some of you would be interested in looking at what happened. Picked the stake out of the ground, stake about 2.5 feet long, threw it about 8 feet back. Only thing left of the bullet was the very base's thin copper skin, the very back of it. I put it in my pocket to photograph it and I lost it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] The steel stake was completely straight originally.

Re: Accubond 200 Versus 3/4\" Concrete Stake!!!

WOW!

Last year I shot my the leg of my feeder instead of a pig's cerebrum. The legs are made of pipe stem, and the 300 SAUM 150 gr Corelokt Ultra put a hole in the first side of the pipe and split out the back side. It torqued the leg out a little, but it is no worse for wear. I fear the pigs may have been deafened by the bullet's impact because I then stalked to within about 15 feet of them before I popped two of them in the head.

BTW, the reason I missed the first time is the rings failed. The recoil and oversized scope along with some laws of physics, dislodged the rear rings from my base. The retainer semi-moon thing on the rings was peeled from the rings. I have now killed two sets of rings on my Model 7 300 SAUM. Both died the same way, and I am only about 400 rounds into the life of this rifle.

Sewwhat89, Get some Talley rings and bases. The recoil shoulder in the base is excellent. The rings are line bored out of stock and don't move under recoil even in my light rifle. Good luck. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I will when Leupold stops the warranty on the rings I am using. Out of necessity I will have to. My latest set have not moved at all yet. If my zero starts to move, I'll know its time to change. Thanks for the info. Where is the best plave to get them?

Midsouth?

Re: Accubond 200 Versus 3/4\" Concrete Stake!!!

I'm using the Burris Signature Rings and Pos-Align Offset Inserts. I have Shot around 400 rounds full hot loads while using them and I can't complaint. If I do my job with a factory barrel, I frequently get 1/2" groups at 100 yards.
Need to say that I don't have a muzzle brake on the rifle.

Eaglet, I find that a drill press works better for putting holes through bar stock. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
