I enlisted the assistance of a well known long range shooter/machinist/rifle smith back east on the bullet project. I think you otta try the 160 class 0.6+ BC offerings in that barrel. Ask eaglet what they look like (via PM please
) Should be something available not as soon as I would expect.
(I have ziltch patience!)
BTW, Assuming a 100 yd zero, 19.5 MOA @ 1000 is very decent!
Ya gotta love the .277 caliber
This barrel is the factory 1-11 twist so I would be pushed to get the 150's to shoot I think, but
I stopped in and checked on barrel progress and I'll have it this week, it's a 1-9, 28 in barrel. Once I get that finished and I'll be ready for some of the IWK testing. I imagine it will be some time this winter when I actually get the new barrel chambered, I have a few things to get into place before I'm ready to tackle chambering, then again the reamer is sitting right here and the cordless drill is in the garage
I shot it a couple days ago, rapid fire to see if I could get it to wander with heat like it did before I worked it over, after 16 rounds there was no POI change from cold bore, I'm burning through Bergers like crazy since it is shooting so good!!!
Zero is at a 100yrds and depending on the weather I'm 19.5-20.5 MOA ish at 1015 yrds, after that it takes a dive though because of BC but I can just reach 1600yrds before I run out of adjustment.
Thanks for all the good words guys, this sure has been a great learning project!!!
