    Dave, Was watching TV and heard ya callin' /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Hodgon says 96 to 102 of US 869 w300 SMK

    My test

    GRN Velocity
    96 - 2574
    97 - 2609
    98 - 2647
    99 - 2644 /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif
    100 - 2688
    101 - 2732

    6 shots (2-3 shot groups)with the 101gr US 869; ES was 2. Groups were 338 bug holes @ 200. No case stretching, expansion etc. Just a nice hot load. I like her "bark" w/that 869.

    That's the only load that that's PD accurate. Others were coyote accurate and just about everything was elk accurate out to 500 yds. But 225s and 250s didn't compare to the 300 SMKs for down range thumpness. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Yup I got that one and the ones in the sierra book. Just wondering if you good old boys had any more.

    Im thinking the high bc lapuas could be real sweat.

    The lapuas are ok for targets but completely unsat for game. Per GG's expansion tests. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    That sure is a lot of info.

    So to use this info, Only use the loads that are not marked unsafe? And reduce 10% and work up?

    Or is it safe to use any load listed as long as I reduce the loads and work them up?

    Ric,
    It is truly a pleasure to have you back for the third time.
    I think you missed your true calling with lines like "Animals react poorly to bullets Trim the meplats to be equal" you should have David Letterman thrown out of the Ed Sullivan theater, I could listen to this comedy every night.
