Re: Wildcat bullets consistency and accuracy!
No drop tests yet Kirby. I spent too much time trying to figure out which mark to use in my reticle for 600 yards with the 169.5. My reticle is setup for 140's going around 3400 fps. I ended up just walking it in and by that time I was out of bullets I had loaded. I'm working up a new batch for a future shoot ( hopefully next weekend ) and will hash out some drop tests then. Were gonna setup at 100, 300, 400, 500, and 600 yards and get drops on all the distances. I only carried 20 last time but I'm loading at least 50 this trip so I can get a couple of groups at each distance for averages. I know my velocity is a steady 3150 with my BMG powder and sd and es are good. I can get it a little faster with retumbo but the BMG proves more accurate so I give up the 60, 70 fps for a few thousanths to a tenth smaller groups. I'm working on my 22.250 as well trying to get some long range results on those too! I had put it to the side since the return of my RUM and working OT but it has been dusted off and is ready to go after a little seating depth changing to find the sweet spot. I will keep posting on my findings as I get them.
Guns and ammo, what more do we need?
