Stunningly good looking rifle. I can remember - waaaay back in my early Deer hunting days in Oregon - in the 50's - and the .257 Roberts had a real following. This on Steroids - and so beautiful I would hesitate to take it into the woods.
You can probably get 3700 with a 100-grain TTSX and one of the new Reloaders. Who could ask for more?OOPS - looked at the chart again - that little 80 grain SCREAMS out at almost 3,900 fps. WOW.
I am going to have to check the charts for my .300 Win Mag in a Mark V. Should be around what - 3,400 fps for a 100 grain?
It's so PRIIIITY..well, since this thread was started, I went wood crazy. i bought a Beautifully stocked ,winchester M70 Super Grade 7mm magnum. SOLD IT, bug just wouldn't leave me alone. I then came across an exquisitely stocked SAKO M85 Classic in .300 Win Mag. while shopping Bergara Pro series rifles.
I bought it. Now have my "Nilgai" Rifle.
