1st Goat Gun Tested...

1st one outta the blocks was the light weight 7mmWSM


Worked up a real sweet custom handload and decided to zero the scope...then since it is anew barrel I cleaned, came back to the shooting mat and fired 5 more rounds...
obviously the super custom handloads of mine worked...



Oh yeah I forgot.... my secret handload you can get just about anywhere... Winchester Supreme 7mmWSM 140gr Balistic tips... yeah facotry stuff...

YOU DA MAN CHRIS!!!

Nice looking rifle, but....... NEED DETAILS, man can't believe you didn't post them. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Groups like that with factory stuff just fire a guy up to try some reloads.

Re: 1st Goat Gun Tested...

Ric,

Very nice rifle and shooter. Those shorter barrels tend to be real tack drivers!!! One reason that most XP-100s will smoke most rifles in accuracy!!

One question you state you are getting 3370 fps with the 140 gr BT in the 22" barrel. Is this from your actual velocity testing or what Win advertises?

Just curious as that is some smokin velocity. Great rifle!

Re: 1st Goat Gun Tested...

Kirby,

Smokin' is right... the velocity was from the RSI Chrony I have. It was avg. over a 10 shot string. 5 sighters and 5 for group.

I didn't believe it myself.. in the first 5 shot string there were 2 at 3400+. I will say that it was 89* today...
I am not sure what powder Winchester uses for it's factory stuff but if it is RL.. it would make sense.

with that bullet ( 140gr BT) 5000ASL, 89*, 40% humidity.. I have 1914 fps / 1139 ft lbs. / and only a 18.75 MOA drop / and a 5 moa drift in 10 mph wind... at 1000 yards!!!! ...Holy crap is that respectable

not bad at all for factory fodder... ;-)
