Re: I think I might need a more explosive bullet?
I know this is really ( I MEAN REALLY) old thread. But here is my two cents anyway. My vermin prescription is as follows
50 grain vmax bullet
26 grains of VV N133
Winchester brass full length sized and trimmed to 1.75
wolf small rifle primers
In a 12 twist 24 inch barrel, the Lapua manual list this load at
3533 FPS. I don't own a chrono so I haven't verified what I am getting out of
my 24 inch 12 twist barrel.
This load is accurate enough to hit soda cans at 300 yards. I have the fullest confidence that if it aint no bigger than coyote and no further away than 300 yards I have a lethal vermin perscription.
.308 Howa 1500, varmint supreme. 24" .820 barrel, Roedale precision brake.
.223 Howa 1500, varmint supreme, 24" .820 barrel.
