Thank you for the feedback. Mind you, what you've said makes me think that the .408 CT might really do all those few who developed it say it will do at great distance, despite the fact that I've never seen anything in the way of respectable accuracy out of the things at distances as far as 600 yards save for a few fluke groups that measured sub-0.25 MOA.
Damn, you've got a mind like a steel trap, amigo! I can't believe you remembered that I mentioned that my .300 WSM
's tube has a 1:12 twist. By the way, I'm sorry I didn't get back to ya personally about the accuracy of this Lapua 185-grain load. Now you know!
Incidentally, I've gotta e-mail you some pics of some of the extraordinary 20-round groups I've managed from a prone position (using a Harris bipod and Accu-Shot monopod) with this rifle and the subject Lapua 167-grain load. You'll be incredulous. The smith (Pete Pieper @ Precision Barrel Work) who did the rifle even wants to put up pics of it along with one of these targets at his website! Imagine that!
