Wildcats @ 500yds

WEll I did some more fireforming yesterday and figured I would post up a pic of the 500yd plate after two shots on it with the 169.5gr Wildcats sitting on top of 98grs of 872. The velocity was clocked at 3385 for one round and 3373 for the second.


I really like the way they left nice deep 3/8" craters, with the metal rolled out on the edges.

The wider craters around them are from my buds, 300 RUM, the 185 Bergers and 210gr Bergers. The deep one, directly over the two 169.5's, is from a 150gr Nosler Solid Base I shot right before we touched up the plate.

    Sewwhat, man that thing is a hoot to shoot for sure. My bud has been working it over pretty well, but now it's my turn. So far we have had no trouble deciding which is who's rounds. LOL

    Blas,

    I am working slowly into my new .270 Allen Mag.

    You should have a complain to Kirby that the gun shoots an inch to the right and one bullet didn't land exactly on top of the other at 500yds.

    Mike,

    Looks like 1/2 moa or better to me!!!

    Good Shooting, you will like this girl more and more the farther out you push her!!!

    You must have a pretty quick burn rate lot of WC872. Your getting pretty impressive velocities for that powder charge, course its alot warmer down south as well [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]!!

    Keep us posted!!

    I thought it might be a 7mm ,I saw the 169.5 bullet.

    Kirby is going to build one for me sooner or later. What caliber I don't know yet maybe 257 STW or ????????.
