    ES vs accuracy

    Full disclosure from a personal experience. I had a 7mm RM built by earlier said gunsmith. It was giving me fits. No idea why, but with a 180 Berger and H1000 I had a load that was an ES of 7. Couldn't make it hold a group better then a paper plate at 600 but would shoot 1/2" at 100. I...

    ES vs accuracy

    So by everyone's logic, if you have a good grouping load at distance, then you have a low ES/SD. So, why do I need to chronograph and see a printout to know that. I'm going to tweak my load either way until I see what I want to see. My point is, once I have a load that will shoot under MOA...

    ES vs accuracy

    I threw away my chronograph a long time ago as it caused more frustration then it helped. Had loads that were accurate but bad ES and had loads with good ES but bad accuracy. I check for accuracy at the furthest distance I'll be shooting, if I see some vertical dispersion, I'll adjust charge...

    6.5 PRC with Berger 144 Hybrid

    I'm sure it has. Just don't see the point. The140 does everything I need it to, including shooting an elk. But if I feel like I need more, I'm not going to shoot a bigger bullet in a 6.5. I'll just grab my 300 with a 215 Hybrid and use it, and if I feel I still need bigger then I'll grab my...

    6.5 PRC with Berger 144 Hybrid

    That's pretty much what I said my concern would be. What did you shoot with them?

    6.5 PRC with Berger 144 Hybrid

    There is a hollow spot before the lead starts. Insert drill bit only down to where you touch lead. Make sense?

    6.5 PRC with Berger 144 Hybrid

    I would go with the H1000. Don't understand the comment about these being a poor choice. As far as I know, they haven't been out long enough to shoot an animal with them yet. But, I did read that they are more pointed (smaller meplat) and that would make me want to do some testing before I...

    Question on verifying velocity

    I used to use a chronograph but quit about 5 yrs ago as I could never get them to match with what my ballistic apps proved out. I had an Ohler 35 and used a Magnetospeed. I can usually "guess" what my load should do and put that into the ballistic app. I'll shoot 500-600 yds and make...

    6.5-284 *Reduced

    Appreciate the offer but I already have the barrel and stock for a re-barrel job. If I sell this then I'll go custom action.

    6.5-284 *Reduced

    I don't have any targets to show you. I spent most of the rounds verifying drops on rocks out to 1000yds. Shot a few deer and antelope with it out to 600+ yds. I'm gonna say it's an easy 1/2 MOA with very little load development. I used the same load from another 6.5-284 I had and it worked...

    Sig Sauer Whiskey5 vs. Zeiss V4

    I have a Whiskey 5 and I like it way more then the Zeiss V4's I've looked through. The Sig is made in Japan and you get a lot of scope for similar money. Illuminated reticle and Level Plex that the V4 doesn't have. I wasn't real impressed with the turrets on the V4 either. I'm sure each...

    Pic added to show weight. A little heavier then I thought.
