The 115 Berger in a 1-8 twist barrel will not tolerate velocities much above 3250 fps. I do not know the lowest speed that stabilizes it but it should be stable around 3000 fps.
Hopefully your pac-nor 1-8"twist barrel is not a 3 groove or you wont be using the 105gr Bergers for very many shots either, you will end up using a 107gr SMK or the 115gr DTAC.I have a rem 700 with pac nor 6 wsm 28" 1-8 barrel. will it stablize the 115 grain berger. I tried the 105 gr a-max, it vaporized those.
Good job on your new wildcat. I just did the samr thing with a 25 caliber of the 270 wsm. Have my own reamer and call it the 25 Bobcat. You should get some super sonic velocities, im getting 3650 out of my 25 with a 100 grain bullet. Reloader 22 works well for me.Its a 6mm based on 270 wsm. I am getting 3450 with 62 grs RL 25 and 105 gr bergers. I want to use the vld 115 match grade hunting.
You should get more then that...I'm at 400 in two years out of my 6-284 shooting nothing but berger 115 vld's and it still looks and shoots excellent.Thanks gentlemen,
I just received the 115 gr bergers in the mail today. Haven't loaded any, but will this week. I hope I can work up an accurate load quick. Don't want to burn the barrel out to fast. This is a mule deer hunting rifle hopefully will shoot 40 - 60 rounds per year. At that rate should last about 10 years. (I hope)
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
