Re: Allen Mag Shooters Group

I'm getting an avg of 3194 FPS with the 195 gr in front of 96.5 WC 872. This is at 40*. b to O of 3.021". Clean barrel, this will shoot right at 2" groups at 300 yds. This is the best I've done with it, probably me.
Still having a problem getting a measurement to the lands. Got my tap to modify a case for the Stoney point OAL gage. Have a long tapered lead in my barrel, .250"-.300" and a very short throat at .080 and can not get a consistant measurement. Hate seating these beautiful bullets so deep, with the throat so short I can't even max out the magazine.
Do you have a similiar chamber demenisions and the same problem

<font color="blue"> Guess I gotta get some 872</font>

<font color="blue">Yeah, me too. I've been whining to Kirby about that. He says if it ain't broke don't fix it. Jeez, thats no fun but, darn sure true. I'm a function over looks kind of guy but that bullet seated to the base of the neck just flat looks mean. When someone wants to see what I'm shootin' I just show them a loaded cartridge along with a single bullet. It gets the same affect </font> [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

What action and stock is on yours. Are you getting any stickiness at all with that load. I have to "click" the bolt with a thump of the palm of my hand then just pull hard to get the bolt back. The case expansion seems to be just ahead of the web.

Roy
I've got Texas Tim's 270 AM.
With WC 872, I started at 95 gr and went up in 1gr increments thinking I would end up around 100 grs. Got hot at 98 grs (3252 fps), 97grs showing no gains over 96.5. Ejection is smooth--again this is at 40*.

Re: Allen Mag Shooters Group

Yea, you're right. The bullet itself is much more impressive than the loaded round.

Re: Allen Mag Shooters Group

Finally got the stock on the 270 AM up to snuff with the rest of the rifle.

The stock is a Randa Enterprises LRH Thumbhole specifically designed for a 'hide' setup. It took a while to design then fabricate. The final finish was debatable right up to the end. But seeing as how Memorial Day was looming, I chose appropriate camo colors [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Base coat is Pearled White with candies on the ends. It was fun to do. ( I can hardly wait to see what my next bright color scheme will be)

I also lengthened the forend a couple of inches but it doesn't show up well in this pic.

I went with mammoth palm swells on both sides to allow comfortable shooting from either side. The big girl feels like more of a hand full than she really is and the design works very well for prone shooting and consistent shoulder pressure.

You need to do something about that shiny stainless steel barrel so it won't spook the elk. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
