Re: 180 grain Scirocco II\'s & .300 Winchester Magnum - Perplexed
I haven't gotten to the 180 grain Accubonds yet. I am just to stubborn to give up on the bullet I really want to shoot. It may cost a bit more, but I really think the Scirocco II is the best of the bonded, polymer tipped bullets out there for the hunting I do. As far as trying RL-22 goes, I gave that a whirl a couple of weeks back and the groups were better than IMR 4831, but still not good enough for me...1.5" range. I have some loaded up with varying charges of H1000 right now...just waiting for the weather to cool slightly (weatherman tells me I may be able to shoot this week [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img])
If the H1000 doesn't work I am going to try some IMR 7828 to see how it shoots. If I don't find what I am looking for there I may purchase some RL 25 and give it a whirl.
If I don't find what I'm looking for by then I will throw in the towel and try the 180 grain Accubonds.
I am not fretting over the time line as I already have a load worked up that throws the 200 grain Accubond into an inch consistently at 3,000 fps.
I will keep you posted.
