Thread: 150gr GS HV Ready To Hunt

  1. #1

    Default 150gr GS HV Ready To Hunt

    Final tweaking of 150gr GS HV Hunting load for my Marlin XL7 30/06 using Hornady brass, 210 Fed Match primers, Accurate 2495BR, OAL 3.240", moving 3070fps, will adjust impact 1/2" down two clicks and 1/4" right one click. Love it when hard work and open minded efforts with powders allows me to get to this point. I don't think I could be happier with my Marlin XL7, Boyd's stock and FX 3 6x42mm Leupold

    They are good bullets. If it would only stop raining here. I have the GS for the .375, .30 and 7.65. I have some rounds loaded for my wife's 7x57 that have worked very well.

    Didn't you just have a thread here on cup and core bullets? Seems like you preferred them. What's so good with the GS HV?

    Found their website after I last posted. Thanks for the link. Over a dollar a bullet. Pretty spendy.

    Yes, it cost but after using it I think it is worth every penny of it.

    Not a bullet I would use for plinking and target shooting, but for a hunting load, a box could last a long time.
