dave yup ya beat me to it.

RE the 250 Hornadys. I've got along real well with any of the interlock bullet's performance in most calibers I've tried with them.

The 250 Match in my 338 RUM didn't shoot so well. Velocity was good but groups were random.

Heh, but that's exactly why I like that group so much--I would have hit it all three times. Much more satisfying than a tiny group off in some random location on the target. ;)

Ranger, i was talking about the 250 Hornady at 3100 shooting at 300 yards. sorry, wasn't very clear.

good luck with the elk this year. i've been putting in for 3 years now. frustrating how they keep dropping the number of tags available.

Jon, i know what you mean about the group in the bullseye. all of my best groups are no where near the bull. i just said that to beat the "old pig killer"

I have shot 175 grain bullets with slower twists. I don't think it needs a 1-8. Any input on this.
Hornady seems to always recommend more twist than is actually needed. I have shot the 162gr A-Max from a 10" twist barrel in 7 STW and got very good results. I'm thinking of loading a few of the 208's in my 300 RUM (11" twist) but am waiting for a little board feedback before ordering any.
