Any luck with the heavies in your new rig? What speed did your accuracy end up at with the 225 Dozers?I'm having another one built off a blueprinted 700 with a 9.3 twist bartlien for the the heavier bullets.
The 250 Lazer is one of the mono bullets I've been looking at. Any luck with your 265's?I’ll be doing a 24” when I build mine. Plan on shooting the CE lazer 265. Building off a tikka! I’m excited
Did you get close to the speeds you were after?I’m going with a 20”...... hoping 250g Berger hits mid 2800’s
I haven't built the other one yet, I have too many other gun projects I'm playing with, including 2 other Shermans. but I ended up getting a little over 3000 with both the 225 dozer and the 230 ELD-M but settled on about 2985 average. first pic is 230's the second is the 225 dozersSo I'm getting close cutting steel on one these. I was just wondering if there were any updates out there from current owners...
Basics of my build will be a Tikka T3X donor sporting a new 23" Benchmark barrel with 8.5 twist.

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
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
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
