Re: 300 WM and 210 SMK loads?
Man that sucks, traveling 3 hours to the range!! I can shoot out to 1150, 5 minutes from my house, makes it kinda nice. I can test loads in the morning, come back home, do some checking and comparisons, load some more up, go shoot in the afternoon, if there still not good enough, I can load a couple more loads and shoot for the 3rd time in the evening. Thats what I did today, I first shot 800 yards with my .270. Then in the afternoon I shot 500 yards, and also zeroed my 210g vld's out of my 300 RUM once again. Getting that ready for the 1000 yard tv shoot soon. Then in the evening, I went back out to 800 to practice with my 270 once again, and to get my 210g vlds on paper and get an idea of what there doing. It was a long, but fun day at the range [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
Anyways, I did not know sierra is making a 210g SMK. Well I had heard they were making them, but did not know they were available yet. I to have worked up loads 2-3 grains past books maximum before seeing sticky bolts or pretty bad looking primers. Books seem to be conservative for most everythign I"ve loaded for. I usually start 1g below what the book says for max, and work up in .5g. Seems to work for me anyways.
