    264 Win Mag LR bullets

    Well said. Dance with the girl you took to the ball. When I rebarrel it will be 1in 8 or faster. Maybe one of those new Bartlien barrels of their new metal.

    264 Win Mag LR bullets

    I"ve been through this. I have a Rem 700 Sendero. The bullet that did best for me was the 135 Berger Classic Hunter. I use RL 25 for 2975 fps and it has shot great to 1040 yds. I couldn't get anything else to stabilize. I don't push my rifles to the point where I get a hard bolt lift.

    Wild West?

    If you lived close to a large city as I do you would already know it is just like the wild west.

    Has the 30-06 died along with the .308 ???

    Every one should have an '06 in the cabinet.

    7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner

    I tried other bullets in this weight range and these shot the best. The RL26 has a lot to do with the performance. I use the 135 classics in my 264 Win and found nothing better for the twist of 1in9.

    7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner

    I found some RL26 to try out and am happy with the results. I have a stock SF1 Sendero. Using the Berger 168 Classic hunters and 77.0 gr of RL26 I was getting bugholes at 3275 fps. This might not compare to some of the custom builds, but I was only getting about the same velocity with 140 bts...

    7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner

    I found some RL26 and was looking for load data for 160 to180 bergers. What has anyone been loading? I have a SF1 Sendero so I like this weight range for my 1in 9.

    ballistic meter, which one?

    I have both the 2700 & 5700 Elite. If your range is 800 yd max you will find the 2700 will work great and is much cheaper. It can only hold one rifle at a time but that does not mean you can't hold several in your phone and reprogram as needed. Mine has been very accurate to 800yd.

    Powder for new 243 no varget

    In a 243 I've used IMR4350, shoots great. Used IMR7828, shoots great. I'm now using RL22 ,again shoots great. Some of the other powders mentioned like Hybrid 100V is one I would like to try along with RL23 & RL26. However it gets hard to fix what ain't broke and the thought of the extra barrel...

    Berger VLD vs Hybrid

    Check your seating depth. Be certain your not into the lands.

    264 Win Mag RL26 Data/recommendations

    What is the twist of the old gun? Let us know how the 7977 works out. I couldn't get the EDLX's to stabilize with the powders I had on hand.

    264 Win Mag RL26 Data/recommendations

    My Rem SF2 will push 120 BT's at 3250 with IMR 4350 , did not like Retumbo , not accurate with it. Temp sensitivity not an issue where I hunt. Just a little input as all guns are different.

    264 Win Mag RL26 Data/recommendations

    I have a Rem SF2 with the same twist . The heaviest I found that would shoot well , under .25 , was the Berger Classic Hunter 135's. I used RL25 because I had it on hand. Not the fasted at 2985, but an ES of 8. A lot of people knock WW brass but it works well for me. I would like to try the RL26...
