Re: Factory factory factory, my LRH rifle

That rig sure looks like a keeper to me.

As said above when you start reloading keep those 160 class bullets in mind.

Also I'll give the 160 and 162 gr bulllets a try if I have to reload.

Thx for all the input guys.

Re: Factory factory factory, my LRH rifle

I got out again to shoot the thing at 300 yrds last week at high noon 95f and light wind from my back to the target. First group was about 6" but all shots were on the target high and right. Then I shot a 4", then 3", 3", and 3". I let er cool between groups but at 95f it didnt cool much. Next range is 425 yrds and I'll try that soon. I hope it'll be cooler and maybe I can be less impatient and let the barrel cool more between shots and between groups of three. The Center Point scope performed flawlessly. After I conquer the 425 it's off to another range to try 600. I thought this club I joined had 600 but it dont, but the 600-1300 club is only 30 min drive. 600 will probably be my limit, but may whang a few at 1k just to see if I make a hole in the paper. I'm thinking maybe a Hart barrel for it next yr, if I dont blow my bonus on a sstl 338.
Thanks for kind help.

Silvertip,

Cold demin. water with a funnel and small tygon hose will cool the barrel much faster.

I don't think it hurts a thing.

Also, I'd give consideration to Berger 168s.

Re: Factory factory factory, my LRH rifle

The economia forces me to put it for sale for 725.00 if you want it. Email me and I'll remove from gunbroker. Currently sighted in for 500y.
