Re: Berger 215's in 300 win mag

I am shooting basically the same load and shoots great out of my 24" Rem 5r.

However, if I switch to Fed brass from Norma, will I need to start over with my load development? I'm runnin 74gr H1000 CCI250 primers 215 hybrid target COAL 3.63"

Should I drop a few grains and work back up?

In search of tightening up my groups I installed a heavy duty ground recoil lug, I also found that the front screw on my scope base was too long and was hitting the threads on my barrel. After shorting the screw and new recoil lug this is the group. There was a gusty wind coming from 7-8 o'clock.

Re: Berger 215's in 300 win mag

Jon,

I think I would load up ten wait for a calm morning or eve and re-shoot. Usually a little left and right but on same plane is shooter. A 300 is a big boomer. If you have a hard back wall on your trigger right after the 'break' this may just cause this too, just put a little over-travel in it. Took a group on one of my rifles from 1 1/2 to 3/8".

Pretty good group and some good shooting obviously to get to this point. Good luck.

Thanks Kevin. I was thinking the same thing about trying again on a calm day. I will look at the trigger and see what I can do there.
Yesterday still had the wind so I didn't shoot paper targets, instead a buddy and I stretched her out to 1215 yards on some rocks. We each consecutively hit a white spot that was about 3"x 6" at 1215 with a gusty wind. The wind was not full value and measured 3.2 average pointing the wind meter at the target. Boy its fun to see the impact at that range! I'm really starting to like this rifle.
