Yeah, True, while friends & I have slain a few coyotes with the 40gr non lead from our 223s with instant kills, it will be interesting to see how these 35 grainers do, especially in the ultra fast 250. I'm a little nervous, but look forward to it & will keep everyone posted.
Ya know, Andy, I've owned 5 or 6(?) 250s, & did have one (non Remington) that I never got to shoot straight. How do you like the non-Remmy line, instead of me saying Savage?
(true story). Plus all this non lead cxxp has complicated things now. Ugh!
Bob & Grant, MANY years ago I was showing a semi new shooter a similar target, & would you believe those were the exact words he used. Only difference was, he was Serious
! I even tried explaining it to him, only to see him get more defensive, figuring he was right. OMG, I still haven't gotten over that one... obviously!
Mike, I'm down to only 2 predator rifles these days, & both are Remington 700s. 223 was a VLS & 250 a SPS. I put H.S. Precision stocks on both & love 'em. I totally belileve it on that 700 308. I've seen the same thing with that rifle & caliber AND 4064 powder.
Not sure about the 32 grainers, Mike. When I had my 204 for about 2 years & approx 800 rounds through it, the 39gr Sierra Blitzking was not only best in my rifle (a Rem 700 of course), but also best in 2 of my friend's 204s. Those are still excellent groups you're getting. The 32 gr may be worth a peek at btw? I think we sometimes get to expecting too much, & then believing we can take on Desert Fox or someone. Sometimes! LOL
I have to admit though, due to the 204 extremely limited # of bullets it likes, & to a lesser degree, powder, along with seldom, if ever, obtaining advertised velocities, is why I got rid of mine. Please don't misunderstand, as the 204 is indeed a great round,
Another load in my 204 was with
grs of RL 10X and the 39gr Sierra Blitzking. Just a thought.
