3325 fps.what kind of numbers is that load producing? Why not a light crimp?
My 300 loves the 180s with a stout bit of RL26 and a light crimp...I need to back it off as it starts to express pressure in the heat.
Almost minute of bocce ball at 450 will get it done...interested to see the unbraked results.Finally got to really stretch the legs on this rifle today.
Breezy - estimated 12-15 mph, probably more like 10-12 based on drift
71 grains RL16
Peterson brass (5th loading)
166 grain Hammer Hunter
All shots prone off front and rear bag.
I started with a clean bore. At distance it was interesting to watch it settle in. First group of four at 350 was about 6”. Second group was about 4” with the last three fairly tight.
This was 450. I dialed 4.25 MOA (Hornady app told me 3.99 but I didn’t have my readers on when I dialed).

I’m not doing cartwheels, but I’m happy with this. 450-500 is as far as I’m interested in shooting under the best of conditions. This is a solid MOA rifle/load combo.
The Leupy dials like it should. This should be sufficient for now until my OCD compels me to try H4831 or a light crimp.
