Lifetime bronze benefactor
Hornaday already make .330 bullets for the 8x56r
Hmmm... I don't see this Hornady offering on Graf's Web site.Yes, 205Gr if I recall correctly. Unfortunately it’s an exclusive with Grafs and they wouldn’t sell any elsewhere, even overseas, when I asked. Otherwise I’d have one already.
thinking out loud - I wouldn’t mind a 180 or 200Gr Barnes…..
@Bren7X64Just a teensy, weensy little point ..... (actually, digression is a better word)
On another forum of which I am a member, the (then) Rigby management used to post interesting pages from their records.
This one posting showed a page from their order book for a 275 Rigby for someone called Elizabeth Windsor ordered by whoever the King was at the time. So a 7x57 for HMQEII (or to to you guys who weren't from the Colonies or Dominions, Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth the Second).
I found it very interesting that the date was in 1942, when the war was in full swing. OK, the Brits had now gotten the USA onside, so they were 100% sure that even if they wouldn't win, they were certainly not going to lose, but I would have thought that all those gunsmiths would have been off at the Royal Small Arms factories somewhere bedding sniper rifles or something. When I mentioned this, the Rigby guy got very snotty and asked me what I would do if my king wanted a gun - not the point I was making, I thought, but ....
There were other orders on the same page, but although the handwriting was a work of art akin to calligraphy, I found it really difficult to read .... so they were actually still doing other work.
