Read the write up in the Hodgdon Reloading mag. Looks good but just wanted to check. Going to be using an 18" JP 1/8 twist. Looking for a 300-400 yard load that is close to the Black Hills 77 gr Match ammo which shot out of my gun at 2805 FPS. Drop was perfect with my Burris XTR BDC at 300 yds. 1.25" group at 300. When I win the lottery I'll shoot factory.
I've been shooting 77SMK out to 600:
23 grn XBR 8208
Wolf SRM primer
RRA NM, 20in, 1/8, SS, Wylde chamber
No chrono data though
