I do plan on trying that factory load. How did it shoot?
I went to 48 gr of RL 22 with the 140 gr partition. Still working on the 156 gr Oryx load, going to try some RL 26 next. The 156 gr Oryx hits like a sledgehammer in my 7X57. The 140 partitions in the Swede have scored three one shot kills on two big Axis and a 250 lb boar. Pretty rifle @VonJager , looks quite familiar.
Did you have any high pressure signs with that 48gr load? Did your group tighten up any more?
Only shot three rounds with the 48 at paper. Two touching and one 1" high. Used that load on the axis and hog. No pressure signs at all, still kicks light and very little noise.
Well, I found one on GB and had to buy it. Extra Zeiss Terra laying around found its way onto it. Taking it to the range Wednesday with some PP.
How Swede it is, the more I use this rifle the more I like it! The 140 partitions are'nt fur friendly on the offside.
I think the same as you.
@Sand Rat: You are a killin machine my friend. My health has been quite an issue for me and I haven't even shot mine yet. I am so glad that you have been puttin yours to good use. Safe travel.js
Decided to forgo the scope on this one.
It is now my traditional aperture sited bolt action CF rifle.
NEGC rear aperture sans OEM patridge.
Shooting 140 gr. PPU for the brass, to be reloaded w/ Speer 140 gr. GS.
