Default SIERRA 165gr SPITZER GAME KINGS 300yds

These are my latest reloads from my Howa .308 at 300yards using 165 gr sierra spitzer boat tails game kings out to 300 yards using ADI powder AR-2208...I developed loads starting from 44gr and worked in increments of .5 at a time with max being compressed at 47C,my best load worked out to be 45.5g,all cases were trimmed to a uniformed length of 2.005,and coal was measured at 2915 with 0.010 off the lands,.here are the results for my effort....cheers

Have you ever tried deburring the flash holes. I have found this to be the single easiest way to get accuracy. Simple and quick. Helps insure uniform and consistant powder burn.

Man, this is why I want a good chance to actually do this stuff. Any time I road a few rounds, I get impatient waiting for some one/thing to go in favour of a range trip. Then I get so annoyed that I just start shooting at targets, mainly gophers, and don't really work on finding that perfect combination.....would probably help if I also had a proper fixture to hold my targets up too. But you know, details.

Wouva1,Very nice shooting.

And I agree with Robo,deburring the flash holes is the first thing I do to any brass to improve accuracy. I also use the Lyman tool.

Very nice groups indeed. I use these 165gn GameKings in my 30/06AI on pigs, goats, feral donkeys, feral horses and feral cats and they perform very well with nearly all shots being bang flops.
I generally get 1.6" groups using 61.5gns of AR2209(Aussie powder) out of my M98 actioned rifle.

Did you say feral donkeys....WOW...yeah the sierra bullets have a great ballistic coefficient and my rifle doesn't seem to foul at all with copper fouling....must have been the proper break in procedure...who knows
