Re: Load Development

Texas,

Why does it seem "funny" that good groups are shot with so few rounds?

Here is the load data on a 338 win mag that was used by another customer. This is the very first load he tried. He loaded 3 bullets.
Sako 75 Rifle
206gr EXP Groove Bullet
338 win mag
71gr of IMR 4831
CCI-BR2 primer
Win brass, OAL was 3.440"
3 shot group at 100 yards = .537"

He is very happy with the results he is getting.

As to other calibers. I will have the following calibers available within the next 4 weeks:
243
25
270
7mm
30
338
35
375
416
458

The 25, 7mm, 30 and 338 calibers are available now. Other then those listed above additional calibers will be made available based on customer feedback.

Don

Re: Load Development

Don what I meant was without much load development to load only 3 rounds and have groups that were good enough to stop trying to improve. Maybe its just me but I figure most people would load a few more then keep trying to improve. There was no ill intent behind the comment.

Hopefully the other calibers will be out soon. They do seem like a varible choice to the SMK's.

Re: Load Development

Texas,

Thanks for the clarification, I missunderstood what you meant. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I assume that the customer I spoke of then loaded other loads and tried them. All he told me about was the first 3 bullets he loaded.

Again, thanks for the clarification.

Re: Load Development

No problem this is a very good forum with great people that have a lot of knowledge and opions. Now if we could just get everyone together in one place to meet and shoot (besides on the net) it would be good. Just think how many ground up customs could be built if we tried to go and meet everyone.

Re: Load Development

Tim, BC - ??? Price, BIG. No savings on solvents gonna make up the difference!

Will confess though, the lesser bearing surface idea is a very good one. Been done before, just, the price probably killed it as it will here.

I'd be leary about "Giving" any to a friend, much less, a father in law.
