Re: My Long range SML-11 w/ tactical stock

My mistake. Hahaha.

Keep me posted on the SST if sabotless. I lightly knurl the Barnes for my McGowen. The SST's need ran thru a sizer as they are just a shade too big out of the pack. I might try a few tomorrow.

    you're right, they are a shade too large. I kind of thought I might get away w/ them since the Barnes were so loose, but ended up hammering the SST down the barrel. I will be getting some of the spitzer Barnes to try soon and change the scope as I was running out of elevation at 300 yds. I do have a Viper 4.5X15 AO w/ 75 minutes of elevation but not sure if it will hold up to the recoil. I had a flat point 300 grain Sierra that measured at .4515 and it fit down without much problems and lobbed it out to 300 yds about 10" low of aiming point w/ no more elevation to click down or up to.

    I had the 250 SST's ran thru a Lee .449 sizer. I lightly knurled them up for proper fit and will be shooting them soon in my McGowen. They are pretty reasonable in bulk 50 packs from Grafs.
