Re: 264 win mag

My 264 Win mag likes Retumbo. It is a Shilen barrel 9 twist 27 3/4" long on a Rem 700 action. I shoot the 130 Accubond with 66.5 grs Retumbo in a WW case reformed from once fired 7mm Rem mag cases, CCI 250 primer. 3350 fps and will shoot half MOA. Kills deer so fast you have to really know EXACTLY where they are out in a green soy bean field or you have trouble finding them. They drop in their tracks and don't even kick. It is like shooting them with laser beam.

Re: 264 win mag

My son has that exact gun, I have a custom Stiller with a Broughton 28 inch 8 twist barrel and a Rem 700 CDL SF they all shoot WW cases, 215 primers, Berger 140 hunting VLD's and 68.5 grains of Retumbo at 3180-3280 fps into 1/2-3/4 MOA groups. I know RT2506 has said before that his gun can't shoot this load as it's too hot for his gun, all I can say is it works fine in our guns. Start a few grains lower and work up to be safe. It's also listed as the max load in the new Berger manual.

Re: 264 win mag

Back in the late 1950s and early 1960s when the .264 came out there were not as many bullets and powders as today. 870 and MRP was the go to powder for the .264 Win Mag. I just built a .264 Win Mag for a customer. Borden Timberline action, McMillian BDL in Edge Technology, with a 26", #4 fluted, Muller Works, 1:877, 5R, barrel. I shot it with 130 Nosler Accubonds, 130 Sciroccos, 140 Barnes XXX, and 120 Barnes XXXMX. I tried IMR 7828, RE-22, H-4350, H-1000. The 120 Barnes XXXMX with Federal 215, and 68.gr IMR 7828 shot multiple 5 shot groups in the .3s" with a velocity of 3,420. This is a hot load and I would not recommend it as a starting load.
