    For my Weatherby Vanguard S2 257 Wby Mag

    69gr IMR 7828
    117gr Sierra GameKing
    CCI 250 primer
    Norma brass
    OAL of 3.25
    *Pretty sure this is near or at max charge for this bullet so approach with caution*

    Started at 3.19" and worked my way up, groups tightened as I moved up. 3.25" gave me this group. Center to center was .32" Hope I can get close to this with Accubonds

    I shoot that bullet sometimes ... along with IMR 7828 ... same Primer .... Remington brass ... with a slightly less charge ... in my .25/06 ...

    I also shoot the 110 gr. Accubond ... IMR 7828 ... same primer ... Remington brass ...

    Both will shoot better than I can see now days ...

    Oh ...good shooting ... !!!

    Shooting little tiny groups like that will reduce you target paper use a bunch! I mean...postage stamps are big enough and you'll get plenty in the mail. That's some good shooting!
