    Thanks Guys the info I have drawn from this
    site is great!!!!
    Have been working on a load for my Sako 75 in
    300 Wby for the past 4 Months

    Finally nailed it - thought I would pass on the info might be helpful to somebody

    Sako 75 in 300 Wby 26" barrel NO muzzlebreak
    4.5-14LRM1 Leupold
    Norma/Wby Brass
    Fed 210 primer
    190 SMK
    83.2 H4831
    Overall 3.685
    3060 FPS
    Std D. 9FPS
    All holes touching at 100 yards - but I have
    to let the barrel fully cool on the third
    shot or it will fly about 1/2" wide

    Shot it at 250 Yards got consistant groups of
    less than 1"

    Finally last week got to a 700 yard range
    the drop chart was right on!!! The scope
    tracked great There was not a target that
    could escape me - I don't know the group size
    at 700 but could see that the bullet marks were very close

    again thanks to everyone on the board
