Re: Still thinking about a long range rifle
Yowza!!, thanks for all the help guys,
I just got done reading the 9 pages on the Wolf, very , very interesting...
Hope that shoot went as planned, must'a been fun!!
Michael, I hear ya on the "smith" thang!!
I too wanted to build a 30 on the Lapua case, but got stuck with a .300 Rum Imp. 'cause of the smith pushing that way.
Interesting to note that the velocities are quite similar to what I get from my Sako Warbird with a factory 26" bbl. 180 Accubonds @ 3520 fps .(106 grns. RL 25),
Just recently I've fired some decent groups @ 100 yards during load development..
Smallest to largest-- .420", .432" .469", .502", .592.
Now I know accuracywise the Warbird is nowhere near the class of the Wolf and brass is crap when compared to the Lapua stuff. Getting kinda tired of paying for Lazzeroni's "cheap brass" only to toss after a few firings..
I kinda assumed that with the longer bbl and quality of brass the Wolf would be able to push 180's (200's?) @ 3600- 3700 fps..
Am I crazy or is it possible??
Also how do you guys feel about using a Sako action (my Warbird) and a 30" Hart heavy bbl to build either the 30-338 Lapua, 30 Yogi or the 30 Wolf, I can't decide which one, or should I just chamber the Hart bbl in the Warbird, the velocity is there, and with fair accuracy.
How is it y'all still don't know the difference between CALIBER and CARTRIDGE ??
