I believe the 178 is too light for RL17 in the 308Win. Velocities will likely be all over the place.

Think 200+ gr bullets, and a compressed charge of RL17.

Well Shane, gotta send that MK4 back it looks like. Second scope this year. Groups are all over the place and two clicks at 800 is moving impact about 3 feet.

Phuck.

Shane, have you run many 175-178 class bullets lately?


Don't waste your money on a Chargemaster. Ever.

Yep they suck

I ran out earlier to double check stuff. The 22-250AI that's always dead nuts was about 3" high at 200.........the 6.5-284 was 3" low. I've no idea what's happened? Reset and plan to eat all day tomorrow and peel out early Wednesday for a hunt.

That blows.....

BTW,

I run a Wyatts in my 260 with the 140 VLD's. Got just enough room to touch the lands and still stuff 'em in the mag.

If I don't shoot it too much, I won't have to chase the lands, so all's good..... whistle

While some chastise the Wyatts, I don't have a problem, although only an experience of one.....

Why do some dislike the Wyatts so much?

BTW, seems that Shane was right on concerning '17 and 178s. "Groups" were bad, and it seems that when seating to mag length, there just isn't room for enough powder to reach a workable velocity. Maybe it'd change when seated out long, but who knows...
