GG,
Thanks to the measuring tape you had laying accross I was able to resize the interested portion of the picture to life size. As you would imagine, the rest was easy.
Great Shooting!!!

Is that hole in the top center from the infamous Lop-wah (Lapua) incident?

Yes, it is. So far, it is the only bullet/cartridge combo that has done that. I really wonder if that bullet ever stopped! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

Re: Thunder@1400 yards

The only time I ever got an SD that low was with the 357 SIG. What powder and primer were you using? Do you have to change the powder as the temp changes or did you work the load under hunting type temps ? Great load great setup and great shooting. You just got to love EXBAL are you using the newest version ?

Thanks,Keith

Re: Thunder@1400 yards

Thank you.
I was using RL22 and Fed 215gm primers.

This load seems to work well in all temps until it gets to about 85 degrees. Then it still shoots good but tends to loosen primer pockets.

I have two versions of Exbal. One old one new.

Re: Thunder@1400 yards

The hole came from the thunder (which is similiar in ballistics to the Lapua) and the 250 grain Lapua Scenars. They are really good bullets but really bad for anything but paper. At least in .338 caliber anyway.

The gong was at 100 yards when the hole was formed.

Your rifle does have a brake correct? What would you compare the recoil to?? say a 300 win. or so
