Well, you've left yourself no excuse for a miss! ;)

I am sure that is just the way you want it though.

Nice load and good shootin'.

Well done! If you'd like to work up a second load, 76gr of IMR4350 works very well in my M70 and a friends with the same bullet.

Cant find a much prettier target than that!! It's funny because my first CZ 550 that killed the Buff in my avatar shot the SS and CPS to the same point and just as good with RL 15 at the same speed. I loaded mine to a much longer Coal in the spacious CZ magazine. Congrats on finding a great load, now to go somewhere and kill something with it!!

Not sure that is needed unless he would like to open up the group:D

Thanks guys. It's not too often that I get a load with so much promise. Next week I will shoot out to 200-300 yds, so there is still time for me to bugger it up. But still I may need to start planning another trip to Africa.:sneaky:

That's one I have yet to try on my wife.

"Honey, I have this great load...I need to plan a hunt so I can put it to use"!
