The conditions today were:
55 degrees, Cloudy 4-6 mph winds, 30.19 pressure, elevation 600ft,
I've got about 70 rounds through it now. Maybe 75. I started at 50 grains and started to work up. At 50.4 the bolt was just barely starting to get sticky. First chance I get I'm going to load some ladder charges starting at 50.6 up to 53 and see what the gun does. I don't want to have to carry a hammer to knock the bolt open with.
I would be satisfied with 2850 with the 4831. I'd like to find some Retumbo and try to get it to around 2925 or even a little higher. As much as I shoot I'll prob never burn the barrel out. I just want to flatten it out some, and hit my target.
The drop today @ 500 yards from a 200 yard zero was 48.5". My 243 with a 95 grain bullet only drops 53" with a 100 yard zero. Kinda frustrated, bummed, .....need help.... Need Retumbo I think.
Do you think the massive difference in elevation would has that drastic of an effect?? You had 4100 ft or something for the 2900 quote. I mean that's 3500ft difference.
