After the 2 quarter inch groups I wanted to see if the accuracy I was experiencing at 100 yards would extrapolate at range. I then put this group in at 300 yards (bull is 2" in diameter):
Drop chart and load development done within a few days.
The specs on the rifle is as follows:
Stiller Predator action.
Border (Archer) barrel (S5 profile) .292 neck.
B&C Stock (Alaskan II).
Tuned Remington trigger.
PTG bottom metal.
The load I have settled on is:
52.8 grns N165
20 thou off.
Just need to start testing it on some furry, hairy or feathery creatures now.
Looking great mate and good to see another forum member from over here!!
Cracking caliber , i was using a RPA in the same caliber and was using the same bullet / primer / cases and 50 grains of H4831SC to give me 2900fps.
Let us know how you get on hunting with it - great bullet for hunting!!!
I know use a 280 Ackley with 162 A-max which i picked up earlier in the year!!
Happy hunting and enjoy your new rifle!!!
