Thread: 6.5 load performance

    6.5 load performance

    Hi all,

    as i no longer own a Chrono (stray bullet from a 243 AI) I had to come up with a way of testing/ comparing loads, so what i did was make up a backing board and shoot both loads at the same point and walk backwards shooting a group every 50m. the piccy is the resulting target.
    Groups circled in black are 140gn Partition's and the groups in pink are 129sst's. i shot the 140's first and then the 129's in order to get the 129's on the board i had to hold off the board to the right. don't pay to much attention to the size of the groups (that square is pretty small at 250m)



    i think i'll go with the 129sst's as i've got 300 of them.

    I'm lucky as I can set out targets out to 300yards. I can then test my loads without having to move.
    I find 140g game kings and hornady sp's to be very accurate but 129g sst's are a very good hunting bullet and I have shot red/roe/Sika with them without a hitch.
    Here are some pics of my latest zero session with 140g game kings which I will use for the next wee while.

    regards
