I will sight in with a kahles 4-12 and use that for this hunting season.
Good Plan! After all, hunting is the end game, right?.......Rich
p.s Do you want me to send you a few SXR's to try?

Finally got to test the 215 bergers in the 30/375 S.I. with H1000. I tested from 77-80 grains three shots each at 100 yards. The two obvious winners were 77.5 and 79 grains, which IIRC was the loads Rich found shot the best in his rifle. These were seated .042" off the lands. I will chrono both loads and check their velocity spreads. 77.5 was .352" CTC and 79 grains was .386 CTC. 77.5 is the first pic.

Looks like it likes them. Want me to guess velocity?
