    Ballistics program vs Real life

    Still confused by the results, I found one of the problems with my setup.. a lose ring to base screw. Didn't effect groups much, but my zero would change. I think the chrono reading were not off too much.. What really stumps me now is the Velocity variation from my lots of H4831.. Sat I...

    Ballistics program vs Real life

    I'm not sure why a chrono works good at 1st then has 1.5-2% error all a sudden. I assume the sensors have moved apart maybe or angled out some. Mine is a thick heavy Varmint, over .900 at the muzzle. but I'll mount the magspeed to a platform so I can shoot glock pistols. Thanks for the words...

    Ballistics program vs Real life

    Yes Strelok pro may not be the best to use, and there could be much better. Nice, yeah, that a difference of 10.6 inches and 14.2 inches at 600 yards. My buddy entered in my data on his Kestel 5700 that has applied ballistics on it and we both came out very close in drop. something like...

    Ballistics program vs Real life

    I was kinda thinking the same, the bullet doesn't lie. But I expect a chrono is a tool and there to help. As I said before, on my Chrono, the 56.0g load shows 2824 fps 7 yards from muzzle, actual 2835 [email protected] zero yards. but like I said in actual shooting with me 1.5 inch high at 100 and dead on...

    Ballistics program vs Real life

    Sorry guy, I know it sounds confusing, not the greatest paragraph writer. Basically, yes, after changing lots I re- chronoed, thought I had a slow lot, but after chronoing other older loads, everything is down in 50-60 fps FPS But using my old data of [email protected] fps I'm spot on, but...

    Ballistics program vs Real life

    I have a Rem 700 long action 284 win, 317 neck, .212 freebore. Been shooting 195's and mostly 180 Hybrids. loaded to 3.240 & 3.250 oal. Have a Bartlin 30 inch 5R 1:8.0 tw barrel with a small RAS tunable (birdcage style) brake. 2.0 inch scope height. Main load is a 180 Hybrid @ 2820 fps, or...

    Good 1k rifle that barrels last a long time

    The 6 Dasher W 107smk, 32.0 Varget, 58k psi shows 2100 rounds life for the barrel. No doubt the Dasher is easier to shoot more accurate. low recoil not only effects shooter, but the action, bedding, stock recoil direction etc less. I belive for awhile now the world record 10 shot 1000 yard...

    Good 1k rifle that barrels last a long time

    I've been looking to build a new rifle, not a competition gun, but something that holds it's own to 1k and I don't have to replace barrel often. I built a 284 a few years back. Even started a thread here. on LRH https://www.longrangehunting.com/threads/284-win-build-w-195-berger.163576/ The...

    New scope for .284 build 100-800m

    Did you compare them at low light when you will be hunting? the 50mm will bring in more light per magnification than the 44mm assuming the coating and glass are equal. Younger people ages up to around 30 have 7mm exit pupils but as we get older, our eye don't open up as much, people in their...

    Suggest a caliber and cartridge for a LA 700 Rem Action....

    The 280 AI or 280 Sherman would be the best bet, I had a 30-06 rem 700 action and I had a 284 win barrel screwed on. That way I could get the 195's at mag length, but I have feeding problems with the 06 magazine mech as it is designed for the 06 case and the 284 case is thicker. Not Sure if you...

    Sightron SIII or Vortex PST SFP???

    Sightron, but it may depend on what you want. I bought the sightron 8-32x56mm and it has superb glass quality compared to the Vortex I have looked through, (but not as good as my Zeiss HD5 5-25x50mm in low light). And it was perfect for my long range 284 win build w 195 & 180 Bergers. The...

    New scope for .284 build 100-800m

    I have looked through many scopes. looking for a good low light scopes is totally different than daytime. the German tech is light years ahead of the rest of us in this field, as they do a lot of night hunting. So Euro Glass would fit your needs better. I have compared Leupold, Nightforce...

    New scope for .284 build 100-800m

    I've looked through them both, the Zeiss is worlds better esp in low light. but to everyone is there own eye's see things different, so who knows.

    Sierra Bullets New .284 183gr MK

    the lengths seem to be close, the 195's hit lands at 3.255 in oal, 180's 3.245 oal, and the 183's at 3.315 (or was it 3.325) oal.. the Sierras may have a harder jacket and thus it may be the reason behind the added pressure. I have not loaded up any, but have a new box of em. 180 Hybrids are...
