    Buddy, I think you've put waaaay too much thought into this. I got mine from Jon in June and it's got 950 rounds on it and 50 more loaded for tomorrow. :)


    JMO, respectfully of course.

    I was messin around for a coyote load and with the 100 gr NBT and 38.5 grs Benchmark got 1/2 inch groups at 300 yards and 3325 fps from 28 inch bbl,,the 95 VMax didnt shoot as well,,
    for the smallish whitetails around here I bet the 100 NBT would work well on them also,

    Phil, Berger has already given me the data. I really appreciate your customer service. Very cool that you guys shoot new powders shortly after they hit the market. I got data for RL 16, H4350, and Varget.

    Slide over to West TN and shoot some bigger ones! One of the few advantages we have over the middle and east of this great state.
    Part of the fun! I hunted at the end of last year with my 8yr old's Savage Axis youth 7-08. My primary rifle had a trigger problem and I did not have anything loaded for the 6.5L. Load obsession is basically an off-season pleasure for me.

    I get that. I've got a load for 130 Hybrids, 123 Scenars and just bought a box of 120 ELDs to shoot a few coyotes with or mid range steel.

    The only thing that didn't perform well for me was the 140 RDF. About 40 of them and I was done. My barrel just didn't like them.

    I did my first JB scrubbing at 800 and it came back around. Before that I just used three wet patches of carb out, 3 passes with a bronze brush, 3 patches of wipeout then two dry patches followed by a patch with 3 drops of oil.
