    Bart B spend 20yr in the Navy shooting that's how he got started. He was just a Palma team member and he had coaches like every other team member after he retired.

    Bart B can tell you more about his navy shooting and what he won and score even picture since he was top navy shooter. I'm sure Bart B can post when he was selected for the Palma team as they do write up on each member and he can post that also.

    Here's the data, an ideas what may be causing this?

    300 Weatherby Accumark, same gun, same brass/primers, same powder load, same OAL:

    168 gr Berger Classic Hunter (BC .496) = 3125fps

    168 gr Nosler BT (BC .490) = 3278fps

    I have a theory but tell me what you think.
    You are getting more speed because the nosler is creating higher pressure than the Berger.
    I highly doubt it is run to the rifling though, but bullet construction. Nosler pills tend to have a pretty stiff base (the old ones before the bt were called "solid base") and often create more pressure than sierra in my 7stw. I suspect it is the same for you with your 30roy.
