I've been chomping at the bit to get out and shoot some of these at distance. The conditions were close to perfect with only a slight, steady breeze out of the east at 3-5mph and 20*F. Clean air with zero mirage. According to JBM calculations, this bullet has a .600 G1 BC, slightly higher than the 130gr Berger VLD's I've been running in both .260's. Subtracting .1 mil from my Berger 130 range card, put this load right on the money. At 510M I put in 2.3 mils elevation, and held off .3 for left to right drift. It's always nice to get the wind call right the first shot. I was rewarded with a rare opportunity to see clear bullet "trace" through the scope after each shot. Fun stuff! I wasn't disappointed with the first five shots and walked down to the plate and took a pic.

I re-painted and shot another eight rounds....just to make sure it wasn't a fluke. I had one that went a bit right, but was very happy with the verticle on both groups.

Interesting notes on this rifle include this Schneider barrel has 2600+ rounds throught it and I haven't run a cleaning patch through it in over 300 rounds...still hammering!

The next session will be to shoot it out past 1000 with this load and also to take some critters with it to see how it works. If anyone out there has any experience with this bullet on big game, I'd like to hear about it.

Nice shooting Pat!

I do like the Schneider brand, thinking I've had 9 of them now and it's my fav.

Thinking a fella from the Bozezone has been using Jimmy Knox bullets for some time. Next time I run into him I'll find out what all he did with them as I just can't recall.

Shoot straight!

Nice shooting, Pat! If I were a 'yote, I'd be shaking in my boots, just looking at the pic of that steel plate! grin

I saw your 100 yard group in the reloading forum. Unreal. Looks like it'll hold up at range as well.

JLK's are some pricey bullets.

Better not show up to the SHC with that rag-tag rig and load. LOL!

Great shooting. Looks like the closest thing to an actual laser that I've seen!

scenarshooter...looking at your rifle I see a cheekpiece for lack of a better word. What are you using? I am putting together a 6.5x47 Lapua and notice when shooting prone I would like a little higher comb on the stock. Thanks.

Very nice shooting. Hope my rifle will do as well.

Just a leather riser I made from heavy saddle stock, border stitched and dyed. I wet it down, then sew it together on the bottom. It helps raise the comb a hair, plus it's a lot nicer to put your face against leather than plastic when it's 40* below zero. Helps in the summer as well when it's 100+F.

Pat, do you use a Kestrel or any gadget like it at all? After getting taught a lesson today in a switchy breeze I'm really considering getting into one.

Nice touch Pat. You never cease to amaze me. Looks very proffessional.
