Ok, ordered reamer, brass and dies from Rich for the 30 Sherman Mag. Used a Terminus Kratos action and Bartlein 1-9 twist 31 inch blank. Told gunsmith to make longest barrel possible. Barrel is 29+ inches. Put in McMillian A5 with TT diamond trigger. Topped with Nightfore NX8 4-32. Load development was a breeze. Ended up with 230 grain Atip, 83.5 grains N570 at 3.800 OAL. At 100 shoots one ragged hole. My first two shots today at 625 yards were touching. Hit steel every shot at 875 and 1080 with no sighters. Love this gun/cartridge combo. At 1000 yards still doing 2059 fps with 2164 ft/lbs of energy with only 19.5 MOA drop- Less than one turret turn on my NX8. Thanks Rich for all your work on this caliber. Ordered some more brass tonight.
Glad you are liking the SM and thx for the encouragement!!
