Just not with wimmins..........

I went to the range with the hired gun (270WSM) and my 300 Saum, and had a very productive day.

I had tried H4831sc in the 270 last time out, so I tried other powders today and used Accurate Arms Magpro, Winchester WXR, and RL19.

That Magpro is some fast stuff and clocked 3400 with the 130`s but accuracy was poor, I went to the Winchester WXR and was able to quit right there. I had a 4 shot group in the .6`s and 3300 FPS on the dot.



The next rifle I broke out was my 300 Saum and I tried RL15 and N540 in it today.

The N540 was the right choice with a 5 shot group at .656"

Good stuff right there.

Just curious as I'm reloading for my 270 WSM, 7mm WSM, and my 300 WSM, how did the RL19 do for the 270 WSM and what was your powder charges, OAL, and group size?

I never shot the 19, .6`s and I`m done. The chronograph liked that powder too with low ES.

I had loaded 66.7 and 67.2 grains of 19 to try with the 130. OAL was 2.830 to fit the magazine of the A-Bolt.

mr big, I realized why I quit shooting it, as I never had a FL die made and the tight headspace made the cases hard to chamber.

I have learned more since shooting it and have learned to rob Peter to pay Paul when dies come to mind.

I used a buddies Redding S-Type 6mm AI FL die to bump the shoulder and now have 50 Lapua cases at my liesure.

I zero`d it today and shot some N170 and RL25 in it.

Nice groups Tim. I'll be doing quite a bit of shooting in the near future. I've got a 6BRX 600&1000 yd. competition rifle in the works. I've got all the possibles collected and my barrelled action is in the mail as we speak. It's a SA blueprinted Rem 700 with a 28 inch Kreiger HV barrel. I'm waiting on a laminated competition stock which should be shipped in the next couple of weeks to do my bedding and final assembly. I've got a lot of work to do on it and the ammo in the next month or two but hope to have it ready for the spring competition start. We'll see what happens. I've been getting advise from several of the top shooters and my smith who's doing the metalwork has done several record setting rifles. Here goes nothing. As soon as I get all the components together I'll post a picture of the before state and then the after.

That is some real good shooting thar. I only wish ALL my groups looked like yours. I can shoot a few groups each day that look fairly close to those but not each group. My groups usually look better on less humid days.

Thanks all for the kind words.

Whelen Man, I am glad you dove in head first. It is good you have all the first class help, as I had great help with mine in the gunsmith area as well.

I`m going to shoot practise here tomorrow at 600 with the 6-47 and 6.5/284. I`m really looking forward to it.

I have been getting dialed in a little better with these rifles.

I hope to shoot some better groups tomorrow.

Maybe we can get together at a shoot next year and swap tales. I thought about a 6.5/284 but planned mostly for 600 yd. shoots and went a little smaller. There are several 6BRX shooters here locally and I've been heeding their advice. I see a few 6-47s and 6.5/284s along with several others. There are so many different wildcat competition cartridges that it gets confusing getting started. There's a ton of information and the more you learn the more confusing it seems to get. This reloading can be as simple or as complicated as you want to make it. Maybe I'll see you next year at a shoot Tim. Just go easy on me.
