    Kuiu Roll Call

    I have two pair of the Yukon rain pants ($. Waterproof, windproof, full length zippers to gonon over boots, reinforced knees and seat. I have worn them hunting AND working in nasty weather. Light, packs down, but more durable than the lighterweight pants.

    Happy Birthday Hog Hunter!

    I got to go scouting with him for his kid's deer hunt. Great guy, truly missed.

    ISO 6.5 Creedmoor Supplies

    In my opinion, the 6.5CM is perfect for a 130. Lapua brass is available. https://www.creedmoorsports.com/product/lapua-brass-6-point-5-creedmoor/Brass You can buy the mixed brass above, but don't mix headstamps when you start reloading. Toss the Hornady and S&B.

    Just a heads up on this rifle.... It is a typical Axisworks built tack driver. Shot it today and found a good load to start.

    7-08 shooting faster than it should?

    My .280AI has a 1:9" twist. It shoots the 175 Elites amazingly well. Also a 160TMK is deadly accurate and fast. But a mono would be limited to the 145LRX or 154 Absolute Deadblow Hammer. If you plan on shooting monos, a 1:8.5" will shoot up to the 168LRX or 169 Hammer Hunter. It will also shoot up to a 184 Berger Hyb. If you want to maximize for true heavies, a 1:8" will spin a 195 EOL or a 177 Hammer Hunter. My opinion, a .280AI does best with a 160-180. If you want to shoot heavier, might as well step up in case capacity.

    The .280AI will push a 140 @ 3200+. Or a 175 @ 2900+ easily. 7-08 won't match that.

    Anytime. I have plenty of other scopes and stocks if you want to check them out.

    7-08 shooting faster than it should?

    The first shot was 3030, and I thought, "dang, the old 7-08 just gained a bit of respect from me." Then I saw 3034, 3030, 3028 (I think) and was impressed.

    1. Brux. I have found Brux are usually fast. But Barnes did use a Bartlein, so this is a variable. 2. 26". Test barrel per Barnes is a 24". That is anywhere from 50-60fps+ alone. 3. Fed 215. Mag primers are hotter. Barnes used Fed 210 LR primers. This could be 10-20fps more with the mags. 4. Brass. Barnes used Rem brass. You are using Lapua. Without knowing the actual case capacity, I bet the Lapua have less than Rem, meaning you are creating more pressure. 5. Powder lot. You could easily have a hotter lot. You have too many differences in components and rifle build to compare and think you would get the same results.

    Recommend scopes

    I sent my R700 LA bolt off to LRI for the fluting. I have several of the LRH stocks too. Love them. Again, you are free to fondle them too. I have one sitting on my reloading desk trying to figure out what it will go on as well.
