Re: 180 grain Scirocco II\'s & .300 Winchester Magnum - Perplexed
Here is the range report:
Loaded up 27 rounds in the following manner:
Once fired, neck sized W-W Brass
Federal 215M Primers
IMR 4831 - 9 @ 73.0 grains 9 @ 73.5 grains @ 9 @ 74.0 grains
Swift Scirocco II - 180 grains.
All measurements (i.e. Compartor, C.O.L.)where the same as the load configured with the original Scirocco.
Barrel had 13 shots through it prior to this session...same powder, same bullet.
First group of 3. 73.0 grains. Result - 2.5" group @ 100 yrds.
Second group of 3. 73.5 grains. Result - 2.75" group @ 100 yrds.
Third group of 3. 74.0 grains. Result - 1.5" group, vertically strung @ 100 yrds.
Decided to pursue the last group to see if it was a fluke...it was. Fired two of the three shots set aside for the group and the two were 3.5" apart.
Came home, pulled the remainder and I will give the remainder to my father-in-law as he thinks they are the greatest thing since sliced bread as all of his groups are one holers [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] Oh, wait a minute. One shot does not a group make [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
Needless to say, I am done with Scirocco's.
