Re: Wildcats @ 500yds

Kirby,

The loads definately warmed up as the day progressed. I started out shooting up some of the original 140gr loads and then tried some of the Noslers just to see how they would do. Then on to the 169's. I only shot five of the big ones right at the last to check the velocity. The first three went into the 300yd target, and I set my scope for the other two, using the data from the first ones. Of all five shots the max spread was only 43fps. I think that was due to the barrel being warmer as I shot the last two. I haven't adjusted the scope for vertical as of yet, and only dialed in the horizontal to see if it matched up with the Exbal. Figured since I was working with one, might as well use the other.

I do however have close to 75 cases formed and will be loading some with the 869 tonight and getting ready for the weekend. Your also right about the more I shoot it, the better I like it. That trigger is MUCH more user friendly now than it was two weeks ago.LOL
