    1st one outta the blocks was the light weight 7mmWSM
    [​IMG]

    Worked up a real sweet custom handload and decided to zero the scope...then since it is anew barrel I cleaned, came back to the shooting mat and fired 5 more rounds...
    obviously the super custom handloads of mine worked...

    Nice looking rifle, but....... NEED DETAILS, man can't believe you didn't post them. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Groups like that with factory stuff just fire a guy up to try some reloads.

    Ric,

    Very nice rifle and shooter. Those shorter barrels tend to be real tack drivers!!! One reason that most XP-100s will smoke most rifles in accuracy!!

    One question you state you are getting 3370 fps with the 140 gr BT in the 22" barrel. Is this from your actual velocity testing or what Win advertises?

    Just curious as that is some smokin velocity. Great rifle!

    Kirby,

    Smokin' is right... the velocity was from the RSI Chrony I have. It was avg. over a 10 shot string. 5 sighters and 5 for group.

    I didn't believe it myself.. in the first 5 shot string there were 2 at 3400+. I will say that it was 89* today...
    I am not sure what powder Winchester uses for it's factory stuff but if it is RL.. it would make sense.

    with that bullet ( 140gr BT) 5000ASL, 89*, 40% humidity.. I have 1914 fps / 1139 ft lbs. / and only a 18.75 MOA drop / and a 5 moa drift in 10 mph wind... at 1000 yards!!!! ...Holy crap is that respectable

    not bad at all for factory fodder... ;-)

    Ric,
    were you able to find out the contour of your barrel?

    How do you like the stock ergonomics on longer shots as compared to an A5?

    I look forward to seeing what you can do with this at long range.

    The barrel is the #5 Lt varmint sporter
    the stock well I like the A5'S and HTG's the best but for a lightweight this stock is the ticket!!!

    What ballistics calc did you use? I am getting different results when I plug in your data.

    20.8 MOA
    1795 fps/1002 ftlbs
    5.9 MOA windage

    Still very impressive!! Just curious about the difference.

    The program I have been using works very well for SMK, but with AB and AMAX it is too conservative in my exp.
