Folks,

I am wondering if anyone has experience with shooting the 195 gr EOL Bergers in a 28 Nosler Seekins HAVAK PH1 rifle. The twist rate is 1:8.6; Is this fast enough to stabilize the 195 gr.? Is the chamber throat long enough to allow seating out far enough as to not sacrificing powder capacity?

I have only shot factory loads in mine so far. Total of 70 rounds so far. I have shot factory Nosler 160 gr. AB, & 175 gr. ABLR and Hornady PH 162 gr ELD-X. The Hornady ammo grouped best ( 5 shot 100 yard groups in the .758" to .900" range ) and the 175 gr ABLR not so well at all ( 5 shot groups 1.25" to 1.75" range )

Thanks for the link, i have enjoyed reading backwards through all of the early HAVAK buzz .... I have one in 6.5 PRC and it has shot very well.

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

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
