    Did this rifle ever fire? I’ve been reading this thread for a couple years now and still no shooting results. I bought a 30-06ai off gunbroker last year with the intent of using it for a donor, however I made the mistake of shooting it. Wow I don’t know who built this thing but it shoots great. I fireformed 100 rounds and developed a load with the 178eld-x showing no pressure at 3050fps, I was shocked! And that’s not even the Sherman variety!

    If I had another 325, I would do a 26"-28". The 26" would let you get the 200 grain bullets over 3000 fps. The 180 Ballistic Tip over 3100, and the 160 will cross 3400.

    @elkaholic
    Well after much talking with Rich, the decision was made to build a 300 Sherman LA. Payment was sent to @[email protected] tonight to get it started. I am looking forward to finishing out this thread.

    The basics are a Rem 700 LA, #3 Bartlein, Calvin Elite, and Macmillan Game Warden. Shooting for this to be 8.5 pound scoped Mountain rifle.

    So far,
    I’ve got some H4350, RL22, and 26 to try, and maybe pick up some Big Game. For the bullets, some 175g Barnes LRX or 181g Hammers. Plan is to push them around 3k.
