Thread: Just checking out the 358Win

    Default Just checking out the 358Win

    I did not have time last night to load my target load for my 358Win which is 46.5grs of AA2495BR in front of a 225gr Sierra SBT that has a velocity of 2330fps. So, I took my hunting load which is 49.0grs of AA2495BR in front of a Sierra SBT that has a velocity of 2471fps. I went this morning before work and the pressure I put on myself was knowing that I was going to shoot a five shot group and how ever it turned out would be what I posted.

    I barely got the group in between thunder storms but did get it done. I do think that if I had a better trigger, more power than 5x, and a better rest to shoot from I might have done a little better, but it is what it is, a pure hunting rifle that is just out of the box without any work done to it.








    group size is .8365"



    It is an unaltered rifle. Never did a thing to it, just took it out of the box and started shooting it. I was a little disappointed this morning, because the other day I fired three fowling shots then a five shot group and experienced the following with this rifle.



    I will do it again soon with my target load.
