Have a 10 twist.

Haven't researched what is needed for the longer offerings.

I'm pretty much satisfied w/the 350 SMKs

Also, JBM Calculations lists the Sierra Match bullet as 375 grains??????

    I'm gonna have to learn his secret as I have only been able to spot each shot.

    The kidney problem has nothing to do w/shooting. Something called renal cell carcinoma caused some fella to root out a hunk of the kidney. It takes a lot longer than one would think for the sucker to reattach itself.

    Went looking, unsuccessfully, for a 1 mile shooting spot. I'll find one, that's for sure!!

    The 350 SMK is goes sub sonic @ 2700 yds @ my home elevationand 30* and beyond 3000 yds @ hunting elevations.
    Sorry bout the confusion Roy. We found a spot were we can shoot to about a mile, there are alot of little canyons and ridges that should make calling the wind tricky. I need the practice anyway if i want to be on a lot of the members' here level.

    My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    It takes so long to retrieve a kill that without a little empty space behind the 350 SMK it wouldn't be worth shooting a pig.

    There's just enough space to get the right amount of rock salt behind the bullet so the meat won't spoil by the time I get to the kill spot.
