Hornady eld 180 match , 1-9 twist

#1 Postby GSells » Thu Aug 16, 2018 6:39 pm

Hi All , just wandering if anyone has tried eld 180 match with a 9 twist cut rifle ( BARTlein ) barrel ? And is it even worth trying at 1000 yds at 2830 FPS or more ?
Kind regards Graham :)

Hi Albert , thanks my mate , I might get a few boxes of you guys and give em ago! Impressive bc of .401 g7 . I think this is close if not better than the ballistics of a 300 gr SMK 338 cal !!
Regards Graham!
