Another great day of load testing

I went to the range early this morning to take advantage of some great weather. There was virtually no wind when I started and it picked up to a slight breeze of maybe 1-2mph by the end of the shoot.

This time I was shooting 155 Lapua Scenar’s to see how seating depth would affect them, I am loving the result. The barrel twist and reamer were chosen for this round and now I can see the great results of those choices…amazing groups. I was following the same setup as I did with the 175smk just a few days ago:

  1. 2.055″ = 15 thou jump
  2. 2.060″ = 10 thou jump
  3. 2.065″ = 5 thou jump
  4. 2.070″ = touching the lands
  5. 2.075″ = 5 thou jam
  6. 2.055″ = 15 thou jump

I was shooting 5 shot groups at 100 meters this time and the groups were quite good except for number three. I pulled that one out of the group so it should have been better.

  1. 0.716″ = 0.622MOA
  2. 0.662″ = 0.574MOA
  3. 0.523″= 0.454MOA  (4 shots into 0.199″ = 0.173MOA)
  4. 0.822″ = 0.714MOA (I don’t know what happened here)
  5. 0.407″ = 0.353MOA
  6. 0.664″ = 0.576MOA
