Re: My Dad's 30/375 S.I. by Straight Shot Gunsmithing
We are in business! I broke in the barrel and shot some groups today, no load development yet, but i dont think i will have much of a problem getting it to shoot. The 150 NBT shot pretty darn well, the 180 J26, did okay, but not nearly good enough for me. I shot a short range ladder at 100 yards with the 210 ALR, i think my accuracy window will be between 78.5-79.5 grains, based on the very little difference in vertical dispersion. I dont know what happened with the 78 grain charge. Next time out i will load 78.7, 79, and 79.3 grains and see where i am for accuracy with the ALR. I started getting some ejector marks on the 80.5 grain load and only had one more round left so i shot the 81 grain load and a good size ejector mark showed itself but i didnt loosen the primer pocket.
