Re: First groups with 6.5-284 LSR

Thanks lablover
I just picked up 2 lbs of H4831sc last week. I guess I'll have to get on the ball and give it a try.

    Not to be picky, cause those are great groups, but you group measurments are a BIT generous [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    first one is .325" easy.

    dont have a guess on that last one though [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Aint it great when you get your first real ZERO group -- they dont happen often so hang on to that one [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    CHeers,
    JB

    Hey JB

    Funny thing. I looked at the picture on my monitor and it is bigger for some reason than the original target the 10 ring is 1 inch Wonder if thats why it seems bigger??? Pretty sure I measured right.

    But anyway, I'm very happy with the groups

    BTW Love your website

    Well, first of all, shoot n c's are the WORST for measuring groups!

    Second, a bullet almost NEVER leave a caliber sized hole in the paper (your .263 bullet probably made a .240 hole on that stuff

    no computer issues--look at the groups...
    1st - the shot to the left clearly fits between the outside shots with lots of leeway - .240 bullet + mebbe .100 extra

    2nd group - again looks like the center shot is about centered on the outside 2 so ~.240 group

    anywho, i just help out on the site -- Mr Moderator does 99.99% of the work!

    ALso, unless you have a fairly short throat (bullet crammed in the case pretty far) you could definately up your charge -- i am only getting low 2900's with 51.9 of 4831SC -- im guessing 2800 with your load

    sure likes to shoot bugholes though [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Have fun with your new rig [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    lablover,
    Awesome groups!!
    but how about you take the dime off the target so we can see the flyer...LOL.. just kidding [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]


    If you've got untorn paper inbetween bullets,with a .264 caliber your group can't be any better than .264.
    I assume you are measuring center to center.

    never the less awesome groups!!
    how I would go about measuring the bottom group would be to measure the whole size to the furthest outside tear in the paper and then subtract your bullet diameter,but then again who really cares it's a one whole group.
