New to board and .264 Win. Mag. question

Just getting my feet wet in long range shooting and was sent a link to this board by a friend.

I'm having a 264 Win. Mag. built by Pac-Nor. It will be used with a Savage 12BVSS-S (single shot) action. Going to be 8" twist, 28" long, 3-groove set up for shooting the 140's and up. It will have a muzzle brake and will sport a Leupold 8.5-25x40. The rifle's primary use will be long range PD shooting (trying for 1,000 yard club this summer). I'm also thinking of getting involved in some 1,000 yard competition with it if she shoots well enough.

I'm planning to experiment with Retumbo which falls between H-1000 and H-870 on the burn rate chart. Has anyone here experimented with Retumbo in a .264 WM using 140's???

If so, any load info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Re: New to board and .264 Win. Mag. question

Don't have any info using Retumbo w/140 grain bullets, but Sierra's newest manual shows IMR-4350 at 55.5 grains @ 2900 fps as there accuracy load using 140 grain bullets. That load starts at 51.3 grains and goes to 59.7 grains. They also show a load of H1000 starting at 52 grains to 64.2 grains as a max load. Hope this helps.
