Guys---
I have traded into a John Ricks built S/S M700 in .338 RUM with 27" Pac-Nor, #5, 1:10" twist barrel bedded into a McMillan Sako Varminter stock. I will be looking for a hunting load for this sweetie when it gets here next week(and a brake!!!) . Any help will be appreciated. The guy who had it before had used 250 gr. Nosler Partitions and Barnes 225 XBT's. It wasn't throated long enough for the 300's, so I figure I'll stick with the Barnes/Sierra/Nosler bullets in the 225-250 gr. range...Thanks in advance...
What about it Boyd--you must have something...

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
