Up next with the LR-260 was the Sierra 140gr Gamekings. I love Sierra Gameking bullets,no matter what the caliber,these bullets always seem to shoot very good.You just have to find the sweet spot for the great loads,and I've found one for this rifle.
Hybrid 100V powder-Winchester LR primer-Sierra 140gr Gameking bullet-2.765" OAL
37.0gr = 1.074" group
38.0gr = .894" group
39.0gr = .235" group Now we're talkin!!!!
40.0gr = .575" group
41.0gr = .601" group
I've tried the Hornady SST bullets in several calibers,and I can't seem to find what they like. Maybe I'm just too picky,but if I cant make a bullet shoot under 3/4 moa,they just suck!

Last up was the 7mm-08. I was trying the Hybrid 100V powder out with the Hornady 154gr SST's. Once again,shooting these type of bullets sucked!

45.0gr = 1.654" group
45.5gr = 1.105" group
46.0gr = 2.789" group Showed pressure signs!
All in all,I had a great and a very long day of shooting.I found several good shooting loads with some new components.
It just took me a week to do all of the measurements,and log everything down,plus a day of cleaning all the rifles. THB
