Well Ive finished my personal lightweight 33 XC. This is going to be my LONG range big game hunting rifle. Joel Russo sent me one of his Terminus Helios actions. I went through it and was very impressed with it. Ignition was very clean and timed up to a Triggertech diamond perfectly right out of the box. Zero cock on close. Action was extremely straight as well. Very smooth cycling 3 lug action. Great job Joel. I took it out last night and decided to do some base pressure testing with IMR 8133 and 300 gr bergers. Did one grain increments starting at 109 gr and went up to 118 gr. 118 gr was 3160 fps and still wasn't a warm load. Case web was a half thou bigger than 116 gr. I saw that there was a node between 115-116 gr. I loaded some up at 115.5 gr and shot a 3 shot group that measured .254" @ 100 and had a velocity of 3087 fps, SD of 3.9 fps, and ES of 8. 300 grain berger at .020 off the lands. After the barrel breaks in and velocity stabilizes I might try some tinkering in the upper 3100 fps range and see whats there. With my titanium cheytac brake on the recoil is very similar to my lighterweight 300 norma improved. Spotting hits isn't a problem. I could let my wife shoot this thing.
