Napalmio Posted November 13, 2014 Report Share Posted November 13, 2014 Brillo! Oh no! Now i'm really stuck... The only thing keeping me off the Berger was the price, it will add £30-40 potentially to a full day of shooting, and I figured if people were winning competitions with the Sierra they must be ok! Don't forget though, I'm not looking for competition levels of performance, that's simply unreasonable given the rifle, while no longer in a playdough stock, is still a standard factory action and barrel with a rifle basix trigger. How much variation were you actually measuring (weight and base to ogive)? That info will help me decide, given I know the achievable performance of the rifle with a number of other loads I've developed with a variety of bullets that I've used over the last 4 years in this rifle, with the data I kept useful for comparison with your figures. I have developed a load using the Sierra match kings with Lapua brass in an identical Howa set up in .223 calibre with fantastic results, albeit with significant sensitivity to seating depth, but as long as I make sure every round is produced indentically to within the tolerences of my equipment I can achieve just over 1/3 moa out to 300 yards. If I could get that level of performance from the 308 I'd be thrilled. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
