Re: .264 WMs First Blood
Thanks for the comments.
I was very pleased with the performance of both the rifle and bullet.
Rifle was built for me by Mike Bryant from Wheeler TX. Its a trued Remington 700 action, Lilja 1 in 8 twist 3 groove 25.5" barrel, timney trigger, mcmillan's remington mountain rifle stock w/ edge tech and a zeiss conquest scope.
I was shooting the 140grn nosler partition at 3050. Bench and practice accuracy was/is great although shoots 130grn Sirocco II bullet even better.
The bull was quarting a bit more than I thought and I hit a bit too far forward.
Bullet powdered the near shoulder and exited forward of the off shoulder. No bullet was recovered. Wound channel was huge exit hole was a good 3-4"
