A Bolt

My son just turned 15 this last October and I helped him get a Stainless Stalker in 270 WSM. Outstanding accuracy for not having to do a lot of work up loads. He settled on a 150 gr Partition. Handloaded it shoots 3 @ 1/2" @ 100 yds. We threw the load together fairly quick for Deer and Elk season. He filled a buck and an elk tag with it. Also nice as far as the carry weight. Fairly lightweight for long treks but still holds stable.

It was my buddy's rifle and loads. I believe he was using 154gr Hornady A-max with RL-19 and remington 9 1/2 Magnum primers. I'd have to give him a call to get specifics.

Yup, had it made to my own design (I'm just too damn picky ;) ). 7075-T6, Type III Hard Anodize, extended length, about 2.1 oz. I did have a couple extra made, give me a shout if interested. The scope is the IOR 3-18X42 FFP before I broke it. I should have the new and improved replacement soon. ;)

I shoot 56.7 grains of H 4831 with a 75 gr hornady V-max, and large rifle magnum primers for the extra heat. I haven't been able to buy any of the V max's for a while so I had to switch to the hollow point seirra's in 75 gr with 56.1 grains of the 4831, shoots like a dream. Keep in mind you can have two rifles exactly the same and they might like two completely differant loads.

Good luck!!

browning abolt

I had a browning stalker stainless 7mm rem mag with boss shooting system. the best group i shoot with it was 3/4'' at 300 yards of a bench,
the load was 140gr accubond with 64.5gr of rl22. it may have shoot even better if i seated the bullets out more but i loaded them to still fit in the clip. i used fed. magnum primers.
