    Default New Black Gun can shoot!!

    338-06AI 012.jpg338-06AI 010.jpg

    Remington 700 300 WBY Magnum. 24" Remington tube, was a win mag had it rebored. Right now it has a VX-3 2.5-8x36 on top. It sits in a Remington synthetic stock. I have been trying the Sierra 200 grain Gamekings, they shoot exceptionally well. I had IMR 4350 and RL17 on hand so I gave them a try. The IMR gives me about 3000 fps with a good group and the RL17 is a little shy of 3100 fps and with a max load all 3 bullets are touching. I thought it might have been a fluke so I tried the same load on 3 different days, all with the same results. Watch out Bambi's.

    Did the lighter 165's blood shot the meat a lot?
