I've been meaning to post some info and pictures of the rifle i purchased from James " Jager SA " as some might find it of interest but also to thank James for the work he did on this rifle and other bits for me,
anyone looking for work done or a custom/semi custom rifle its deffinatley worth speaking to him you can expect honesty & value for money. Thanks monkey spanker for your info on the caliber.
So i finally got around to making some rounds for the rifle which took some time to find everything i was looking for i.e Brass/dies it was like looking for hens teeth but got there in the end, Thanks too Jcambellsmith, also thanks to Spud 1967 Mark was especially helpfully not just a shop but a chap that really wants to help & would go out of his way to do so.
ive started out with Hornady 139gr Interlock's and as you will see in the pics below they seem to work well.
I started the loads 10% under the stated max powder and worked up .5gr up to the max. Groups were very good from the get go! bullets touching, As i went through the loads they opening up to around 3/4 inch groups and then one off & max they were tight again. in the info & pics below the load that i find works best is just back from max:
Powder: IMR4350 (55gr) Max is 55.4 in my data book
Bullets:139gr Interlocks (Hornady)
primers: Federal Large rifle
Bullets seated 5thou back from the lands.
