The weight is 18lb.
So I did today the barrel brake and also 1st ladder test
Temperature - 27 F
Elevatioin 4938 Ft
Wind 6mph from 3 o'clock
100yards target (every square is 1 inch at 100yards)
OAL = 3.684 to fit the HS Precision Mag,
Used US869 powder from 98 - 102.5g,
Rem 9 1/5M primer, and
As I noticed I did not reached the pressure signs at 102.5g so I will go up. Also I have to give a shoot at the 4-5th round.
Did somebody used US869 more then 102.5g with OAL of 3.684, because I almost run out of case capacity for powder!!!!!
About the muzzle brake
!!!! TheBEST... I was able for the first time to see all my hits at 100yards
at 16x power scope, without muzzle jump.
