Interesting...what chambering and what MV, Roy?

    Factory Rem Sporter 26 inch 338 RUM;. MV = 2735 +/- 1 (usually, so far, most times, etc) Me thinks RL-50 will get a little more. Gonna try, one of these days.

    I shoulda realized that was the rifle you were talking about. You had very good ES in that rifle with 300 SMK's as well, didn't you?

    Yep . . . the bergers produce a smidgen smaller groups. Not much but enough to measure.
