muleman":2cm1zmbs said:Yes, I did get to use my 338x28Nosler. I found a load with 85.2gr of RL26 pushed the 265ABLR to 2930FPS and into .75" at 100 yards(6" at 800 yards). Hit the bull the high in the shoulder at about 20 degree down angle. The bull took 2 steps and nose dived. The bullet took out all the clock works and was found just under the hide on the far side - excellent performance! I love it when you don't have to track in the rain. Thanks for making great brakes; I can shoot this all day and not get beat up. It has over 5000lbs of energy at the muzzle. A true hammer.

I have a pre WWII Mosin Nagant I added a Bartlein barrel in 25 Krag Ackley with 115 gr Nosler Ballistic Tip with 47.5 gr IMR-4451 making 3031 fps over the chrono. The Swavourski 3x10 was down at 3x and I was resting the rifle on a steel fence post, not the bipod.
