Yes its shooting really well now after some bedding tweaks.
Right now I’m using 220 scenars/8133. I settled on it because it was easy, it’ll stack them at 100 and has very low vertical at distance.It’s not a full pressure load, clocking 2870. I was in a hurry to send it hunting so called it good. The 220 isn’t exactly best in class BC wise but damn they tune themselves.
I couldn’t get the 230 OTM’s that I wanted to use in time. I have them now but won’t be messing with it for a few months, also have some 215 hybrids and 230 Atips to sort out. I tried 250 Atips they shot good but I can’t get enough speed out of them to make any sense in the PRC. 230’s are at home in the cartridge though just haven’t settled on which one yet. ADG will have brass out by next spring, I’ll re visit it all then.
As for the 8 twist I don’t see the downside, but then again I have nothing else to compare it to, but the barrel/twist isn’t an issue on my rifle, after a little bedding TLC it seems to shoot just about everything with acceptable accuracy.just need to get a 230 shooting like the scenars. Might be a tall order.
Factory loaded 225eldm shot right under an inch for 8 shots, so I’m pretty pleased with that.
only good tag I had this year I couldn’t go because of my work schedule. so besides helping friends fill some good tags I haven’t hunted big game at all this year, so instead of waiting for field testing My hunting pard took the rifle and got it bloody.
He has a late AZ elk tag next week that I’m going down to help out on, he’s a picky bastard, but hopefully we’ll turn up a bull he wants to punch with it.
The buck he got on the hunt I couldn’t make.. shot was 430 yards, he heart shot him, buck ran 40 yards and piled up. No exit, he said the vitals looked like they’d been through the blender. Only the jacket was found..RPM’s matter!
