the 240 dozer and 250 berger run the same speed in mine. they both pressure out at about 2910. Perfect fill with rl17 and h100v. I've had to go with slower powders in mine to get more fps. Like n560 works well with every bullet I have.Guys....parts are at the smith and should see it early December.
I sent a dummy with a 250 Berger and a 240 Dozer. Both seated with the boat tail body junction.1000 forward of the neck/shoulder junction. With the 240 Dozer this put the mouth of case covering the indent on the bullet, and both ogive were +- 3 thou of each other. With a 20” barrel, what powders would you all suggest? Guesses on velocity?
Its pretty good temp wise and had good luck with it in my ,338 Sherman long action too. Its about .6 temp wise and will usually give as good or better velocity as RL17 only its a little slower. (about 3 grains)Do we like H100V? No experience with it personally, is it stable over temps? Does it produce consistent numbers for working up loads?
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
