Re: NOSLER Bonded Bullets - .30 and .338

Shot the new Noslers today, tried several three-shot groups with 4350 and H-1000. Best three-shot group was with a max load of 4350, it went into 0.322". Had one other sub 1/2 moa 3-shot group with a lighter charge also. Best 3-shot group with H-1000 was 0.392".
Now to get some velocities and drops - I have the accuracy.
Rifle is a rebuilt long action Laredo, Lilja with a 10x B&L Tactical in Badgers and Nears.

Sounds good Ian! Looks like the potential is indeed there. Do you have it in mind to figure the BC from the drops and MV next time out Ian? You are going to run some through the 308 too?

Will take the Oehler out next trip, plus develope some drops when we can put the steel out long. Looks like these are very accurate bullets [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Re: NOSLER Bonded Bullets - .30 and .338

Sheldon,
You are correct, the scope on that rifle is the discontinued B&L 10X tactical. It is 30mm and extremely sharp, I believe it provides better definition and brightness than my MK4's. Only scope that I use that would match or beat it is the new Nikon tacticals and the NXS's.

Only problem with the B&L is the parallax adjustment is on the eyepiece, you sharpen up your image and the damn Butler Creek opens on a wierd angle. Would have been perfect if it had a third turret like everyone is using now. Excellent snappy turrets, big suckers, nice tough 30mm scope. Also haver a couple of the little 1" Elite 3200 tacticals, for the money they are fine scopes and excellent bargain.

If you don't mind my asking, where are you going caribou hunting?

Re: NOSLER Bonded Bullets - .30 and .338

Shot the .30 cal Noslers at 700 and 1000 yards today and they did very well.

Drop from a 100 yard zero in my .300 Win was 14moa at 700 and 26moa at 1000 yards.

Don't know the muzzle velocity yet but this 4350 load shoots good. Had four out of five shots in about 12", called the other shot out and it was still within 18" easily at 1000.

1000 yards is certainly tougher than our favored 700 yard practice distance but we got a lot of hits on our small plates (15"-18" square), and pretty good consistency on the big 2'x4' zeroing plate.

Right on, very cool Ian! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

2'x4' steel plate! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] I'll bet that thing takes one guy on each end and another to clip the chains on! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] Way to go Ian, I got to get me a big plate like that, I got steel plate envy.

Thanks for the great review!
