    found the load for the twins...

    H4831SC 64.0 grs
    162 gr A-Max seated just to touch
    avg. vel is 3020 fps
    ASL 5500
    temp 70*
    hum 51%
    MOA to 500 yards is 7.25 MOA / 37.7 inch drop
    here is a 3 shot group at 500 yards slight incline so yardage works out to be 490 yards.

    I guess I could have shot 5 but this is a hunting rifle so I shot 3. I have 2 almost on top of each other.. I blew it on the 3rd shot...

    Ric,
    just cut your loses and rebarrel that thing! i'm getting ready to build a horseshoe pit,that barrel will probably work for that.

    Very nice Ric.

    Had decent luck the other day on Brian B's 7mm-270wsm wildcat with 65 grains of RL22 and 160 grain Accubonds. If it will shoot like yours at 500 yards, we will be in business!
