Thanks folks.

Only slight bug bear is because of the way the chamber is cut it won't quite chamber the 165gr round nose factory Geco myself and my father like as a close in hunting bullet but if it shoots like that I can live with it.

So I guess I'll have to try the 175gr Sierra and Hornady's to see if they work with the chamber better. Tough life. Oh well ;)

Nice shooting.  Looks like it's going to be a fun "toy".

Well,

Broke the barrel in and got the rifle zeroed at 100yds today.


160gr TMK over 54. something grains of N165 at book length. (84mm)

I think there's a flyer in there and the rifle will do more...

Sounds like a top drawer setup all the way around Scrummy.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

cheers Taqua. With a 26” barrel and a higher pressure rating than 280 rem shouldn’t be too far behind the venerable 7mm RM

Cheers, now to start crunching data for target and hunting loads.

So suggestions for a hunting load:

160gr Accubond?

Target load:

160gr TMK?

Think what you would recommend for a 280 rem as a start
