Re: New stick pics/ With range results
Well I couldn't stand it any longer, I temporarily put an old Bushnell on this and headed for the range this morning.
Barrel break in went very well, 6-8 shots and copper fouling dropped right off. I shot 6 3 shot groups after break in with 2 different powders, Re-22 and H4831sc.
Velocities were a little disapointing for a 27" barrel but the 59.5 grs. of 4831sc went into .716 and the 58.7 grs of Re-22 went into .252.
The top loads of both powders is the Nosler max load for a 160 gr bullet but neither one showed any pressure signs so I'll be trying for a little more velocity if I can get it.
Recoil was a little suprising I was expecting a just little more than my 6.5-284 but it's closer to my 300 WM. I'm pretty sure I'll be replacing the recoil pad for a little more comfort.
Ignorance can be treated with education, sadly there is no cure for stupidity.
