Yesterday, I had a selfish day on the range (it was my birthday!)
Normally I shoot with Privi ammunition for no other reason other than it shoots very well in my rifles in calibres 6.5x57, .308 Win. .300 Win Mag and 9.3x62. The .308 168 grain HPBT is fantastically accurate and the 150 grain .300 WIn Mag is also pretty good, giving me sub inch groups.
I decided to try to some Blaser CDP ( I bought 100 .308 165 grain and 100 .300 WM 165 grain years ago when I bought my Blaser but wasn`t impressed with the accuracy. First up was the .308 165 grain. I checked the target after the first shot was astonished to see it in the bull. 4 more shots in the bull and I was very happy indeed and ended with a decent group of .75 of an inch.
The .300 Win Mag produced the same results, that is, the 168 grain Blaser CDP had the same POI as the 150 grain Privi. In both cases I did not have have to adjust the scope for either windage or elevation. I shot a box of each Blaser caliber, shooting groups of 5 with the .308 and groups of 3 with the .300 Win Mag and the results were pretty good.
But as the Blaser costs 5 times the price of Privi (circa 70 pounds a box) I am reluctant to do too much expirementing with it! Can I assume therefore that the Blaser CDP will have similar ballistics to the Privi? Many thanks.
