    Default Finally Where I Want To BE XL7

    I am finally done with load work for next years hunting with my Marlin XL7 shooting two different bullets. The 165gr Sierra HPBT and the 180gr Combined Technologies BT. Here is the rifle, targets and the 165gr SBT using W760 moving 2900fps and the 180gr Round using RL-22, and the 180gr CT BT round



    165gr Sierra SBT G/K, Hornady brass, Fed 210 match primers, W760, velocity 2900fps - three shot group





    180gr C/T Nosler BT, Hornady brass, Fed 210 match primers, RL-22, velocity 2812fps - three shot group




    Picture of 180gr C/T Nosler BT round

    Best accuracy I have ever even heard of from an '06. Congrats Beartooth! I just might be inspired to go out and see how much I can improve on my original groups with my XL7 Custom .35 Whelen now.

    The other 299,300,000 people can have it.

    Noone has a more intimate understanding of, or deeper appreciation for freedom, than a soldier who has fought for it in a country where it does not exist.

    Thanks, yes it is hard to get this from any 06. The only 06 I have owned that had this kind of accuracy was a Mark V Custom 30-06 in a B&C Medalist stock.

    Not as much as the guy who spent an additional $700!
    But you really can't brag on having a Marlin XL7 or a Ruger American... unless you have a great deal of Scottish in you.
