factory crappy trigger



federal fusion factory 62gn msr (ar-15 ammo)

heck it was free




and my reloads

mr big killed 2 several years ago like 250 plus yds with his 204

neck shot

i have read on forums of guys double lunging them at 80 yds with 35 gn berger

if i had one i would pop a few with it but i limit my self to neck shot

I earholed a couple does with it also,,I killed 4 deer with the 204 with 32 gr Blitz King bullets at 4175 fps,,I could pick my shots and was more just to say I did,you have to pass a bunch of shots though,,

my CZ 527 Varmint has a 9 twist and I shoot the 65 Sierra Game King bullets on deer with 100% success,the Carbine has a 12 twist and I plan on doing tests with the Barnes 50-55 gr and the 60 Partition,,

Lade-

Fairly certain I'm at 3,300+ with the same bullet and H-4895. Maybe 25.5 gr? I'll check. Your Varget load seems slow with the 53's.

Good luck-

Judd

in the 527 Varmint I shoot the 69 SMK and 25 grs Varget and it clocks 3025,with the 4.5-14 LR with M1 knobs is my absolute favorite centerfire rifle to shoot,,I have been up messing around at 1,000 and no telling how many times up and down to 600 yards and I havent had to move my zero on that rifle/load in 1,700 rounds and 18 months,,
the Varget is the best powder I have used concerning accuracy and temp changes.

i was planning on 3300 plus was gonna try to push 3400

ive always had people accuse my chrony for being fast
7 saum 120 nbt 3600 fps
280 rem 120 nbt 3300
granted both loads were tipping the can
but i have checked it with a ohler 35 it was 10 fps avg difference

i may have a less than stellar can of varget too

if i had some h4895 id try it maybe next year
