I took the Rem 700 with the 9 twist PacNor barrel and the action work by NorCal Precision to the range for more load tests today. I loaded some 40 VMax and Berger 50 gr 204s to test. I used the load data posted on RugerHunting.Com
for guidance and all my powders today were Hogdon. The brass I used today was not preped and so I did expect some flyers and I was not disappointed.
I'll just list the best groups that were shot today with the five shot size and the size with the flyer out.50 Berger, H4895, .89/.3540 VMax, H322, .66/.4740 VMax, VARGET, 1.08/.8940 VMax, H4895, .68/.40Here are the groups that were shot on 6/11/06.40 VMax, AA2015, .55/.4139 BK, AA2015, .69/.34The chrono seemed like too much work to take to the range today so I don't have any velocity data. I determined a few things that should be done in the near future to work toward better groups. First, it's time for new glasses. Second, This rifle needs a different scope. Third, it's time to prep some brass. :)A17Shooter
