Default 300 WM testing

After reading up on the military's decision to adapt the 300 WM as our standard sniper rifle, I decided to replicate a tamed down version. I found some 30 cal Accubond Long Range 190 gr at the Nosler store on sale for $38 delivered for a box of 100 seconds. I picked up a pound of H1000 at Cabelas the other day for CC "points" so the powder was free. Alain helped me confirm some start-end loads so I went to work this morning and fired 2 groups at 100 yards, the first(1.8 MOA), 76 grains of H1000 with the bullet 50 thou off the lands. The 2nd group(1.6MOA) was better with 76.5 grains of powder 100 thou off the lands. The thing I liked about the 2d group was that the last 2 shots were touching. I quit as the temp was 85 degrees by 1000 Hrs. The thing that was interesting is the Sauer seems to like a big bullet jump. I think I own a Sauerby! With a BC of .640 these LR's seem to hold some promise. Of course, 50 degrees colder this Fall will probably change everything. I wish I can get this rifle to shoot as good as she looks!
