If I could get some range time in for a freakin change!
Been to the range 3 different times this week and it was packed every time.

May have to squeeze out a few extra hours drive to west tn and drag tim to the range

Well, I just got back from there, you should come on down. I shot a Browning A-Bolt 270WSM, for a fella, my 300 Saum, and both target rifles, I have the 6.5/284 barrel on the Lt gun, and the 6/47 Lapua on the Heavy. I can give you the DeerAssasins spot on the couch, so it won`t cost you nothin. ;\)

It did OK at best, I loaded 4 shot groups and the best might have dipped around 1". I will have to try another couple powders and see how these targets compare to those and give him the best possible combination. I loaded 3 charge weights of H4831SC with 130 Accubonds.

He is a serious deer hunter, and was complaining to another guy I load for the deer were running off after he shot them, he was going to sell the rifle even. My friend told him to let me handload for it and he`d be happy.
I didn`t care for the ammo he was using and explained why the deer were running off, and told I can surely fix the problem.

Mine seams to like IMR 4350
What Type of A-bolt?
I was curious of how it shot, because my old stainless stalker shot really good (great), but my composite stalker is only pretty good shooting. It seams like the shorter and lighter barrel really heats up fast, and I suppose it would have a different vibration aspect. Its not my Bench Rest Gun anyway
It's nice and light though. Give and Take I guess

I didn`t realize there were different tapers on the A-Bolts. His is the Composite Stalker.

I have only tried H4831SC as today was trip numero uno.

You shooting 130`s?

Not sure if I have Magpro, but I do have the Ramshot version, got plenty RL19.

Dude has wicked glass on the A-Bolt, a 3-12x42 Smit Bender.

Just thought this might help,I'm using 74.5 gr of Mag-pro and getting just a hair over 3200 fps with the 130's.

I planted some plots last weekend by Bucksnort and was wondering if it was a waste of seed
I'm hoping the Humidity has been high enough in the mornings to maybe germinate
The plots are mostley in a bottom, semi shaddy area
Just a little sprinkle here to in Nashville last week
Man this weather sucks
