Got the barrel chambered about 1/4+ of the way. Only 3 more inches to go lol

458 would have better splash.  When you go that big there are really only a few good choices any way.   650gr Lazer would definitely kick some splash

You still want that 8lb'er of Retumbo, no worries if you don't.  I actually have two 8lb'ers if you're interested.

That sounds like a lot of work to hand chamber a barrel. Curious to how aligned with the bore it ends up.

last one I did Shot pretty good. The pilot follows the bore.  It is a lot of work, but I enjoy it.

First 3 rounds down the tube
Just shot at the blank paper, then aimed at the bullet hole for next 2. Then legal shooting light ended

This thing is a pleasure to shoot! Less kick than my 243, can watch the bullet hits in my scope. Wow is it loud!  About half way done with load development but have no clue on speed yet. Going to have to shoot it with out the break to use my magneto speed as the brake is too long. I did strap it on using the spacers and strap had to be on the brake. Bad idea. Strap was clean of the port but sill burnt the strap a bit and I quit that real quick.  Starting load was 2900 with the 350gr smk.  Been having troubles with cci 250ís. Two different lots and both are bad :bash:  bunch of duds and few went off after 4th time the firing pin hits them. Switched to federal 215m and no issues.  So far the worst load was 3/4 moa.  Will check back when I finish load work and get speeds.  Wish I had a lab radar for this.
