    Default Got 275gr Kodiak Bonded to work in 350 Rem Mag

    I had previously managed to get some old 275 grain Barnes bullets to work, but they have not made those for years.

    So I bought some 275 grain KODIAK BONDED BULLETS. They have a flatter point and they do not taper so fast. SO I had to seat them deeper.
    At first they were all over the place.... BUT TODAY

    350 Remington Mag. Ruger M77MKII Stainless
    275 (276.4 actual) grain Kodiak Bonded
    56.5 grains RL-15
    Remington Virgin Brass
    Winchester Large Rifle MAGNUM primer
    2.800 COL, No Crimp

    Temp 20 F, 15kts wind
    100 yards.

    MV= 2,450 fps and a 0.75 inch group. super clean brass, moderate pressure

    Also tried some WLR standard primers.
    MV= 2,400 fps and a 2.0 inch group.

    Default Good work

    Good job on that load work. That is an awesome combination. Have you ever shot a critter with a 275 out of a 35 caliber? I bet it would be impressive.

    I've used that bullet myself, like it a lot, that is a butt kicking load you have there. I used it in the 358 Nukalpiaq and found it to be an accurate bullet there also. A good Alaska made bullet.
    Is there nothing so sacred on this earth that you aren't willing to kill or die for?

    Now I need to figure the BC and make up a trajectory chart. I had the rifle sighted for 200gr triple shocks at 2,900 fps. These drop into the target about 6-7 inches lower at 100 yards.
