Re: 300RUM vs. 300WinMag

Well I didn't mean to hurt your feelings and launch WWIII. Sounds like you really had it under control all along and preferred no one respond to your post. And the next fella that tried to achieve your velocities and didn't have a defective chronograph?

Just aim a little higher - you'll be OK Big Ugly Man.

    Who built your rifle Big Ugly Man? I know a smith around my town who claims very high fps out of various calibres. Wonder if he built yours.

    Alberta Tactical Rifle is the shop, Rick Timmins the builder.

    I should apologize, I was a tad cranky yesterday. I appreciate the suggestions and am sorry I didn't respond with a little more gratitude. I was suspect of the velocities when I first shot them, but as all seemed normal at the time, I shrugged it off. The idea of the chrony being off didn't enter my mind, though it is the logical first suspect. Or the scale, or the guy at the trickler. Still, no excuse for getting all huffy.

    So back to the thread...I'd still build a 300WM, even at the speeds I am getting with the new chrony!

    That is what I thought. He's getting very high velocities out of his shorter barreled .308's with the heavy bullets as well, isn't he?

    Yup. High enough that he doesn't post them for people to decry him as a liar, braggart or incompetent. Not sure the barrel length of the 308s in question, but I know there were 5 or 6 of them built last year for the BCRA match. Using 178s I thought. It's about time for my monthly call to see what he's up to.

    I think the barrels in question were 22" or maybe 20" KURAZY!!
