    Ring height

    Thanks, I read that also but wasn’t sure if they consider a proof sendero a “normal contour” I’ll call them today and confirm.

    Ring height

    Just finishing up a build and want to put some Hawkins tactical rings just trying to figure out what height I need. It’s a defiance deviant with a proof sendero and I’ve got an nx8 4-32x50 goin on it so if any one can point me in the right direction I’d appreciate it or if you think something...

    6.5 SAUM help please

    So I loaded up and shot what berger recommends for their year for seating depth and my best group was touching the lands. 5 shots about 1”-1.25” with 60.2 gn h1000 at very consistent through the chrono at 2976-2982 I’m just going to run with that load for my hunt next week. I now have 121 down...

    I know of two guys that shoot the 140 out of their saums with 8.5 and they shoot lights out that’s the reason I chose 8.5 I’m gunna exhaust my options with the bergers before I switch to an eld or something else.

    6.5 SAUM help please

    Haha yes it is! I’m hopeful that I can get it down to 1/2 moa and then I’ll be happy and confident enough with it to take it with me and then play with it some more on the off season and really get it dialed. So much great information has been shared from the members on her so I’m going to take...

    6.5 SAUM help please

    Thanks again for all this input guys, I’m going to hopefully make it out again today and I’m going to load another round using the Berger seating depth method and see where that leaves me I have a box of the 140 elites that I may try if I can’t find anything with the normal 140vld. Problem is...

    6.5 SAUM help please

    Thanks for all the input man I definately don’t think your being harsh at all I take it all in a very meaningful information. When I comes to brass I know Norma is much better brass but I don’t have the equipment to turn necks and everything that it entails to get 7mm brass down to 6.5 and I’ve...

    6.5 SAUM help please

    I measured the chamber with the hornady oal tool and a micrometer mine measured out at 3.232... when I load a bullet and close the bolt it still feels the same as the ones i have loaded .020 and when I eject a loaded round there is no resistance at all I just see very faint marks on the bullet...

    6.5 SAUM help please

    I still have plenty of room in the mag box I’ve got a Wyatt’s box in it I did not see any pressure signs at 61.5 I just stopped there because everything I read was that the sweet spot for most people shooting this caliber was between 60-60.5 and watching my groups that’s where mine shot best...

    6.5 SAUM help please

    That sounds like a good plan I’ll probably give that a try 60 seems to be my best charge I’ve found so far and anything over60.5 really starts to fall apart I haven’t been over 61.5 though.

    6.5 SAUM help please

    These were my two most consistent groups I think but still definately room for improvement. I leave for my deer hunt in Wyoming in two weeks so I’m hoping to get it dialed a little better and gain more confidence in it atleast out to 5-600 so I can feel good at taking it with me up there.

    6.5 SAUM help please

    So I made it back out today to shoot my New loads I ditched the lead sled like many suggested and shot off my bipod and a rear bag. Forgot the chrono of course but I loaded 3 shot groups in .2gn increments from 59.8-60.6 in .020 off and the same touching the lands when I eject a new bullet I can...
