Hey guys, looking for a little guidance before I waste copper and lead. My 308 lights out load is lapua brass neck turned with 2k of tension trimmed to 2.002. 44 grains of rl15 and federal 210 gm primers. I am pushing a 175 Berger otm seated at 2.815 and flying at 2700 fps. This load is sub.5 moa at 100yards and takes 9.5 mils of elevation to hit 1k yards. Under the same load with a 178 hornady bthp seated 2.860 I get 2725 fps and the same accuracy. It takes .1 mils more of elevation to hit 1k yards.
I bought some of the new 185 juggernauts with a stated g1 bc of .560. I am thinking of backing of the rl 15 a bit because the bullet probably has more bearing surface. My shooter application with my kestrel
tells me if I can get 2600 fps this will extend my effective range substantially (1450 yards and still ss) I'm not hunting, I just love ELR and the ring of the steel. Any input is appreciated
Has anyone shoot this bullet? and what results. Thanks
