    I hate to do this but pictures don\'t lie

    However, my quest for better kept gnawing at me...

    I tried the 175 gr SMK and a max load of H4831sc ( actually .2 grs under...

    well I fired a 5 shot group and guessed at the velocity well I musta been real close or the sierra manual is just that good.

    I had 3 shots left so I concentrated this time...

    Hey Crosshare, I just noticed that was your first post. Welcome to LRH. Don't mind me. Every once in a while I try to be funny. Sometimes it actually works. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    Stand by for a solid answer to your question. I'll shut up and find another member to pester.(for now anyway)

    HEY UNCLE B. WHERE ARE YOU HIDING? [​IMG]

    Re: I hate to do this but pictures don\'t lie

    Come on now. That could be anything from a full on, "I'm drunk and you're gorgeous and we will never be here again." big wet sloppy smooch. That might mean .010 into the lands. OR it might be one of those "Go say good bye to your aunt betsy. But mom, Aunt betsy keeps letting her teeth fall out on her plate." smooches that really isn't you smooching at all but rather some eyeballs painted on the back of a baseball mit held up at the last moment. This could be .030 or more off the lands.

    So which is it Rick? Clear it up for the new guy.
