Just picked up a Montana Rifle Co M1999 X2 in 28 Nosler. I'm not planning on reloading for it just yet as I have a lot of factory ammo that came with it but was curious what experiences everyone has had with them so far and with what loads/bullets? Eventually I'm hoping to build a 180gr VLD or 175gr ELD-X load for it once I have plenty of once fired brass. This rifle will be my primary rifle for my South Africa Safari in July.

I'll load pics tonight.

I'm hearing 1000 rds or so barrel life. I'm not planning on banging steel with this one other than to prep for a hunt. This will be a hunting rifle so I'm hoping that will extend the life.

We have built several 28 Nosler's, and I have shot and dialed in several. I have had great accuracy results with the bullets we have tried- 180 VLD, 195 Hybrid, 175 ELD-X.

Barrel life, if you get 800 rounds, I'd say that's good. The 26 Nosler was yielding about 400-500 rounds. The 28 will yield a little more, but not much. Shoot it slow. But, that's why they make extra barrels!

Of course it burns barrels. That's what hot rod rounds do, and that's why they make new barrels every day. It's worth every penny.

Chad,
what were the velocities with those bullets and what twist is needed for the 195?

The twist on mine is 9.5...think it'll handle the 180 VLD if shot above 3100fps?

It will be close but not optimum according to Bergers twist rate calculator

Yeah I've seen that. I was curious if anyone has shot them in a 9.5.

Might have to stick with a 168VLD or maybe a 175 ELD-X when the time comes.

That's sick! The twist rate is the one thing I wish was different on mine. Mines a 9.5. I got 12 boxes of nosler Ammo with it, 160AB, and I'll shoot that a while then reload some but sounds like a 175 is the high end of what that twist will handle.
