Good long range load - 700m plate banging

Postby Johann_Schmidt » Sun Sep 02, 2018 12:08 pm

Caliber: 8.2x53R Finnish
Bullet: Nosler Custom Competition .323" 200gr HPBT
Casing: SAKO
Primer: CCI
Powder: 42gr Vihtavuori N140
OAL: 74.8mm

Distance: 700 meters
Target size: 30cm

I took 44 shots total. About half for chronoing and zeroing at 100m, then some to adjust windage at 700. After that 2/3 of the shots landed on target. Best salvo was 5 out of 5 hits at alternating targets.

Very curious about your thoughts on the V-140 powder . It appears to be a excellent substitute for Varget , and has a little better Temp stability , from what I've read . Could you possibly post a short list of MV's , and SD avg...I currently shoot the Berger 200.20X & the 200 Hybrid Target-.308 . The Berger SWN is only about fives months away , and it's always good to go into a big match with two or three different powder / bullet load combinations available .
If not me.....Who ?
If not now ....When ?
