What do you get for velocity and how many MOA to get to 1K with the WC 200 grain? Barrel length?
I do not own a chronograph that way I can make up any velocity I want to and not be lying.

Kirby chronographed it at 3340fps with 102 grains of US 869. I am now running 103 grains with fully formed cases and I believe it is about 3350fps. It is a four groove 34 inch Lilja barrel. Kirby now uses Rock 5Rs with thin grooves and he can reach the same speeds with a 30 inch barrel I believe. I think Dick is using a 32 inch Rock barrel

At 54 & 78 degrees at Quantico which has an elevation of about 200', I got drops of 17.0 - 17.5 MOA at 1K. These are real fired data, not calculated. The data are the reverse of what you might believe because I kept the bullets in a cooler in the warmer weather shooting so the bullets were actually colder. Powder temperature at the time the firing pin strikes is pretty important at 1K.

Eddie
They may not have a match when you come, but they might have a Rec Fire day and we could just shoot some clay pigeons and homemade targets.
