Re: 264 win mag

I guess that I won't be much help, but I'll talk some......

I too have much interest in this cartridge. Especially since Remington has been making the Sendero SFII in the .264 Win Mag.

I know a guy that has a .264 Win Mag in a Pre-64 Model 70. He swears by his and has harvested many deer and Elk with it. I know he likes 140g Bullets and uses IMR 4831.

He's an older Feller and hasn't or rather isn't the type to use those "new Fangled......Bullets" So I know he wouldn't be much help.

there is obviously something good about this cartridge if it's being chambered again especially if The Sendero is one of them. I personally belive that the .264 Win Mag is severely under rated.

Re: 264 win mag

I bought a new Remington CDL in 264 and worked up some quick loads last fall. 60 grains of Re 22 in Winchester cases with Fed 215 Primers and 130 gr Accubonds. Also loaded up some 140 gr SMK's with 58 grains of RE 22 in the same cases and primers. Both shot an inch or less at 100 yards. I also would like some one to post some pet loads for this caliber. I'll be working on some loads for this gun and a pre 64 Westerner that I picked up last summer when the weather gets a little better.

Re: 264 win mag

Yes, this cartridge should be way more popular! The average guy doesn't buy it because you can't find them on the shelf like a 7mm rem mag etc. so they don't buy it. I can get over 3300 fps with the 140 Berger out of mine at .640 BC. Run that through your ballistics program and compare it to say a 7mm rem mag, 300 win mag, etc, and tell me why this rifle isn't way more popular. My most accurate loads to get more than 3-4 shots out of the brass run in the mid 3200's. 67 grains of 7828 puts mine over 3300 fps and is very accurate. 7828 along with magpro and even H-870 gives very good results with the 140 grain. Some of the best loads with all the slow burning powders require a ten foot drop tube and 5 minutes of tapping to get enough charge in there but they shoot really good with the 140. 77 grains of H-870 in mine will get into the 3320's.

Those are some hot loads! The Nosler manual shows 61 grains of 7828 with a 130 grain bullet as max. I wasn't really showing pressure signs with my loads but my groups were starting to open up. I loaded some 140 gr Bergers with 58 grains of Re 22 and had 3 you could cover with a dime and the other 2 opened it up to about 7/8 of an inch at 100 yards. I'm going to play with seating depth and powder charge and see if I can increase both accuracy and velocity, just haven't had time yet.
