    Scope that won't break on 300 win mag

    I agree with this. It may not be an issue with the brand of optic being used. May be in the way they are being mounted.

    300 Win Mag ELD-X load testing?

    Thanks for the advice. I have a few pounds of H1000 so maybe it’s time I revisit this bullet and give it another shot. Thanks.

    Powder not completely burning?

    Thanks everyone. I did clean out what I could get but I didn't save any to see if it would ignite. I'm pretty sure now that it is just left over blasting media from the factory and nothing to worry about.

    Powder not completely burning?

    No unburnt powder in the barrel and none in the cases. As far as velocities I've only seen about a 75fps difference on some occasions

    Powder not completely burning?

    It is the second or third time I have had it apart and I had not thought of it being blasting media. I hadn't noticed this in the past so it makes sense it could just be working it's way out with recoil.

    Powder not completely burning?

    I pulled the stock off my 6.5 Creedmoor today to put a Boyd's stock on it and in doing so I noticed what appears to be a small amount of unburnt powder in the groove where the recoil lug sits. It's in the threads and I'm not sure how it ended up there. The only spherical powder I use is BLC-2...

    Should I play with seating depth next?

    It's a Savage Axis II. 22" barrel 1:8 twist. I'm still working on load development and haven't settled on any components yet. I'm looking into trying the 127gr LRX next unless anyone has any other recommendations.

    Should I play with seating depth next?

    I got my load data from Nosler and started with 40.0gr of H4350 and worked up to 43.0grs in .5 grain increments. 42.5 showed the best group. I do need to run these thru a chronograph but I'm stuck at work for the next two weeks so in the mean time I'm will do more reading on the OCW vs. ladder...

    Should I play with seating depth next?

    So I went to the range today with my 6.5 creedmoor and my 300 win mag. Didn't go so well for the win mag. After about 10 shots with the win mag my parallax adjustment quit working and then my vertical and horizontal turrets quit tracking and now something is rattling around in the tube. So it is...

    Axis II in 6.5 creedmoor

    Thanks pineywoods. I took the rifle out today to the range for the first time and was impressed. Out of the box I was getting a 3/4" group at 100 yards with factory loads. I was getting an average mv of 2730 fps. I was shooting Hornadys 140gr ELD-M factory ammunition.

    Axis II in 6.5 creedmoor

    Ordered a Savage AXIS II in 6.5 creedmoor yesterday. I looked at the Ruger American Predator rifle along with the Savage and decided to go with the Savage. I already have two Axis rifles and they are both great shooters. Has anyone else had any experience with this rifle or caliber they would be...

    Different powders for 212gr ELD-X

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I was able to get out and do a ladder test with the H1000 . I found that at 75.7, 76.0 and 76.3grs of powder looked like the sweet spot. The 3 shots were in a 1" group at 200 yards. My muzzle velocity was between 2854fps and 2875fps. Now I will load up five...

    Different powders for 212gr ELD-X

    Thanks FEENIX. I was at Cabela's and they didn't have any of the RL22/23 powders so I picked up a pound of H1000. I'll load that and 7828ssc and see how they compare.

    Different powders for 212gr ELD-X

    I just got my first boxes of the 212gr ELD-X for my 300winmag. I was going to start load testing with 7828ssc which has been my go to powder for this rifle. But am I being to closed minded by not trying something else? Should I be thinking about trying some of the RL22 or 23 powders or maybe...

    WLRM is what I am using with 7828SSC.
