Here are some pictures from the last 3 rifles I shot this week on Tues.

First up is a custom Alamo rifle in 28 Nosler shooting the 195 Berger EOL at 200 yards. All loads shot really good, but you can see Loads C and D shot very well. Load C is running 2985 fps with a really low 13 ES (ES = Extreme spread). Load D is a little faster at 3004 fps with a really low ES of 16. I like Load D. Load E opened up some and I had a little bit of pressure on 2 of the rounds. I think Load E is almost to max.




Next is a factory Sako A7 heavy barrel in 300 Win Mag shooting the 178 ELD-X. Everything was a little open except for Load C. Load C shot really well for a factory rifle at 200 yards. We'll take Load C!



Next is another Alamo rifle, that's a little shorty in 22 Creedmoor, barrel is about 18" I think. I freakin' loved this rifle. Shooting the 80 grain ELD-M at 200 and 100 yards. The wind was switching on me and groups were stringing right and left, so I moved the last few groups to 100 yards for a better idea of accuracy in the wind. I think Load A would have been better if not for the wind. Load D and E shot really well, nice and tight. Velocity was getting up there, and



Entire target all together. All at 200 yards, except for the small target on the left.

Why different numbers of rounds per load? The 28 Nosler, loads B & C only have 2.

Hey Gary, Loads B only has 2, but Load C has 3 rounds. There are 2 rounds in that same hole on the bottom of load C for a total of 3 rounds. One of the pieces of brass chambered firmly on Load B and I didn't want to include that shot into the group.
