Hoping to get out in a little bit here and try it again to see what happens. Hoping it repeats. If it does it might make the cut for elk camp.

Shot it again tonight. Monkeying around with trying to get it just right at 300.

My final 3 shots were on the black

Image

I was able to put my dope on it and ring the 8” steel with my last 3 rounds at 500. I’m sure it could be better but I’m calling it good here. I know it’s consistently better than me :mrgreen:

That's outstanding groups! That load would definitely put a hurting on elk, and bigger critters.
Outstanding shooting Scotty!

That's good groups from the old war horse. Waiting for pictures of an elk. Dan.

I painted up some steel and wanted to check out at 400 yards last night. Pretty miserable for shooting here at 90 degrees and what felt like 90% humidity but I’d got a new shooting mat and wanted to give the 06 some time to shine.

I shot the first two on the red and dropped the 3rd shot, so I decided to see if I could get another in the red and squeaked it in there.

Image

At last light I pounded out these three rounds as well.

Image

Not exactly varmint sorta accuracy but it’s coming along pretty well. That rifle is shooting real well though. It’s fairly light as well and takes a little extra effort to make sure everything is just so but I’m pretty happy with it.

Nice to see someone got Stabal to work in their 3006. I had less than stellar results in mine. Your 300yd groups looked like my 100 :cry:

Scotty,

Those groups are under MOA it looks like.
Great job with the loads, and special kudos for your skill in marksmanship.
By the way, your groups are plenty good for minute of vermin. You would put a real hurting on a coyote with your shooting.

It’s been shooting real well actually. Been on the ground pounding it out. Burned through about 50 rounds over the past two weeks.

Image

That was my last 4 rounds last night from the 06 last night. I figured out I had my scope set at 1.5” vs 2” above the bore so it dropped me a .1 mil and should have me centered up at 400 now.

Pretty happy though. Still might drop the trigger down a scosh. Being a lighter rifle I think it’d help a touch at distance.

Awesome shooting there.
There's nothing like putting in the practice before going to the field and knowing exactly where your bullets will land.
Keep up the good work!

I was wondering, are the pressure parameters within 60,000 psi, or maybe a little higher?
Not that it would hurt having a little higher pressure for the 06.

Now you know those heavy ELD-X’s won’t work on game! If you can’t come up with an accurate load with API projectiles it won’t even penetrate the hide on these new 4 legged critters people are forced to hunt.

All joking aside, great shooting. Accurate rifle, great load, and a fine rifleman in control of the bang switch.

If you forced me to guess I’d say they’re a bit higher, just cause I’m getting a touch more speed than Hodgdon shows for the 208 AMax. I don’t consider them unsafe in my rifle and have ran about 75 through the gun so far to include load work and I’m about to load another 50 of them this morning.
