Re: Reloading Techniques

I've had really good luck with David Tubb's FinalFinish System in both 7mm and .308.

The factory 7 RUM went from 1.125" to a solid .5". The 300 RUM went from 1" to .6".

Just an Idea.

Another thing could be his choice of powder/primer/bullet isn't what this rifle likes. I say this from experience- My friend bought a rem 22-250 that refused to shoot worth a darn with 55g bullets. It was deadly accurate with anything lighter.

I can't think of a bullet, powder or primer he hasn't tried!!

That said, there could also be something in a bind, or the screws not tightend properly. I would play with that theory as well. It's at least worth the time to investigate before scrapping the whole project.

He's already tried these things. Still no good.

My 6mm VLS shoots 70gr bullets under .5" but when I try anything heavier it shoots terrible. 87gr v-maxs shoot around .75" and with heavier bullets it shoots like mini 14.

I think this is what his is doing as well. He bought it b/c of the 9 1/8 twist. He figured to shoot the 105 amax or 95 Berger.

Re: Reloading Techniques

Have him at least check the bolt lug engagement with a marker. That very well could be the problem, and it would be a shame to bark up other trees if you're working against uneven lugs.
