Thread: Mark V 06 Cutom - Accuracy Is Consistent

  1. #1

    Default Mark V 06 Cutom - Accuracy Is Consistent

    The second target is largest three shot group I have fired so far from my Mark V Custom 30-06. This is 165gr GK HPBT in front of 59grs H4350 moving 2953fps on average. The squares on the target are one inch squares to give you a reference point. Once again, this is my largest group with this load.


    Smallest three shot group (first and third round went through the bottom hole as you can see it is a little larger)


    Largest three shot group

    Knowing what your main "arsenal" consisted of I thought that this was the case.

    I never realized how light the Mark V standard caliber rifles were I may eventually pick one up in .270 or .280 myself.

    Black Bear, 90 yds away and dropped one two years ago with this bullet. It went through the right side just behind the shoulders and took the heart and lungs out the other side and he leaped in the air and fell right back to the ground dead and rolled down the rig.

    Great performance with that outfit Beartooth. Have you tried the ETips yet?

    I was getting about 3050 out of my 168 TTSX's in front of 65.5 gr of H4350, and about 3020 out of the ETips in front of 66 gr of H4350. Interesting that the ETips max'd at a higher powder charge than the TTSX's.

    Unfortunately the Sako isn't shooting so well, gonna possibly try swapping scope rings before returning it for another.

    Anyway, good going there... you should get some drop charts together and plink a few 1K coyotes

    E-Tips would either give me 2-3" groups and the best was just under an inch but would not do it under an inch every time and velocities were lower and not enough accuracy on a consistent bases for me. The Barns 168TSX was more consistent in accuracy and actually gave better velocities.

    I will kill a few coyotes with this load, including deer, hog and black bear

    I have named every other rifle I own so I have decided to name my Mark V Custom 30-06 "The Sewing Machine" because I can thread a needle with it.

    You bet, needle (bullet and air) in one side and stitch (expanded bullet and blood) out the other side.
