    Went to the 600 yard line to test 2 300 grain loads in my R Bros built 338Lapua.
    First 3 on steel looked good, all the splat marks overlapping so I went to paper with the 2 loads. First group was 93 grains of H1000, sticky bolt lift. Went 2 3/8" C-C. Then shot the 98 grain W872 load. 1/2 minute lower but the load shot 2 5/8" C-C. Shot of a bipod and Redman rear bag.Winds were 0-3 switching from head wind to full value left then right.
    Phoenix lefty action, Manners stock, Remington trigger, Seekins bottom, mag, rings, base, lug. NF 5.5x22x50 MLR. Rock 27" M24 fluted 9.3 twist. Defensive Edge brake. Built by R Bro's rifles.

    Very nice, Jim!

    Sounds like its got all the right ingredients, and RBros does some good work for sure.

    Take care,

    I like the look of the verticle spread on the W872
    Doesn't get much better than that.
