    Just found out about them today. How are they working in a 264WM?
    What barrel length and twist rate? Want to share load data?

    Thanks. Lee

    Might be limited info out there. Most consider the 264 win a hunting rifle and the 150 SMK a target bullet.

    I've shot them out of my 8 twist saum and they did very well but the recommendation is 7.5 twist.

    Yep there seems to be some vert string reported farther out by a few fclass shooters that seems to go away as you get below 8 twist. But I do not recall the vel they were driving them at.

    I thought someone might be using a 264WM for 1000 yard benchrest. I saw one years ago at Williamsport in the heavy gun class. I may give it a try. There's no formal competition around here. Hopefully that will change.

    I am.using them in my 1:8" 6.5SS. Love them! Coyotes can't stand them. I will be using them on pronghorn in a month or so.
