    Sticking with the "can't leave well enough alone" theme.....

    I was running low on the 183 Sierras, and was all set to restock the stash, but the nagging thoughts of the 195 Bergers were still festering. I could ignore it no more, and made the executive to order a box.


    7MM Lineup:

    120 BT - 140 BT - 150 BT - 160 Sierra - 162 Amax - 168 VLD - 180 Hybrid - 183 SMK - 195 Berger:

    Loaded up a few test rounds with the 195's and R-33 in one grain increments, & hit the "range". Set up the target at 200 yards with a switchy crosswind, and found the sweet spot in 12 shots:

    Finally had a narrow window of opportunity, weather wise, to give 'em a test out further. So I got out there by 6:30, got the steel set up, ran a few jugs out another couple hundred yards, and moved back to the 720 yard mark:

    Almost zero wind, so I dialed in the come-ups, and let one go at the far right steel:

    Gathered up my stuff and moved back to the 1000 yard mark, hoping for a repeat. Of course, the wind decided to make an appearance by then.....

    I dialed in the up, with a couple MOA of wind, & sent one sighter in the dirt. That went a hair high right over the spot, so I clicked down two and moved to the steel and banged off three. The first two damn near touched, with the last one a bit right....

    Grabbed the 6x47 Lapua, and had the exact same result....

    Any plans to try some flatline bullets in it?
