    TPS 30mm alum rings
    NF 5.5-22x50 NP-R1 reticle

    My second built went the other way. Lt Wt LR hunting.

    Pierce SA
    Broughton #3 5C @ 24.5", 1:8 twist
    McMillan Remington Sporter Edge filled
    Rifle Basix @ 2.5 lbs
    Pierce 20 MOA pic rail
    Farrell 30mm aluminum rings
    NF 2.5-10x32mm with NP-R2 reticle

    It likes 140 VLD and 140 Part with Rel 17/Fed 205m primer. Same die set. No changes in the die's adjustments. I'm seeing 2950 fps with the VLD and 2850 with the Partition. 1/2 MOA for both.

    Between the two rifles, I've got over 2000+ rounds and have NEVER had to trim necks, except when prepping brass.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this round. It's so easy to load for. Their's numerous proven loads on the internet so not much load development will be needed.

    Not much. If any, it's usually the reverse; increases in cold, reduces vel in hot. Weird!
