Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    28" Benchmark. Its a 4.5 contour .670 muzzle if I recall correctly 9.5 twist 5R rifling.


    Got off a 14 hour nightshift this morning at 8am, loaded my stuff and the kids and headed for the range. Of course running on limited sleep, I forgot my targets So I rummaged through the garbage cans and found some that would work, a little tape and I was good to go.

    I loaded 3 rounds of 87, 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, and 93gr of H1000

    Primarily to test to see where pressure signs were gonna show up and secondary for a limited accuracy test.

    Set my scope to 10x and started shooting. The thing is a pussycat to shoot as well.

    My best groups were with 87, 90, and 93gr. A definite accuracy pattern. Every 3 grains the groups would be incredible. Inbetween those was nothing to brag about.

    87gr
    2628 fps
    2626 fps
    2579 fps ???

    I called that dropped shot so it would have been a one holer




    90gr
    2731 fps
    2743 fps
    2713 fps




    93gr
    2829 fps
    2811 fps
    2802 fps
