A little update on Magtips. I had some left in the box and used them up today. They still shot well

It was 40* warmer today from when I worked up this load (38* vs 78*). Hybrid 100V in this load picked up 48fps on the average , that’s a little more than 1fps/1*.
I also took my Marlin X7 in 30-06 and chrono’ed the 175gr SMK load with Hybrid 100V. This load was more temp stable , it picked up 22fps on average 42* vs 78*. That’s 0.6fps/1* , not bad. This rifle doesn’t like the SMKs either. I’ve tried 12 different bullets and 7 powder over 460 rounds and the only combo it likes Berger 210gr VLD over 53gr of RL-17@ 2600fps.

Plinking and 416 just don't register in my brain.... and I think a 375 is fun to shoot!
416 WBY for plinking 😂 , but that’s what I do. This caliber has really grew on me , I was able to pile up on components at very reasonable price. Either 100yds or out to 600yds it’s a joy to shoot.

No denying the power of the 416 Wby!
Mine was pushing the 350 gr Mag Tip at 2984 fps.
It would blow right through my 3/8" AR500 gong at 100 yards and divit the back of the 250 yard gong. Serious horse power.
