N.E. Utah Speed Goat

Speed Goat last Sat. AM. .243 80gr TTSX - 195yds. I was hoping for a bit longer shot but the opportunity was there and it was hard to pass up. Had a hard time working up an accurate load with this bullet but was finally able to get decent groups by pulling the seating depth back more than I would have originally thought. Totally different than varmint bullets.

Very clean kill. Dropped like a ton of bricks on the spot.

Fun hunt!

    My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    I was at .75 MOA, which I didn't consider acceptable. For some reason they really didn't want to tighten up until I pulled them back further off the lands and I got to about .5 MOA. I used 38 gr. 4895, CCI 200, Win Brass (2x fired, neck turned and flash hole uniformed), 2.785 OAL (no crimp). Lots of rounds to get to that point. Good luck!

    Thanks! I have about 2.5 lbs of H4895, is that what you are using? Also, do you know how far off the lands you are at 2.785? So far my gun is patterning well (like 5" groups at 100 yards ).
