270 Boondoogle, again.......
« on: July 05, 2020, 10:06:35 PM »
I just couldn't let this project die, so I brought it back for one last try. The configuration of the gun is the same:

- 25" barrel
- ARC Nucleus action
- HS Precision stock

The scoped weight of the rifle is 9# 2oz, so it's a manageable hunting weight. This was the final attempt to turn this dumpster fire of a project into something useful, and I think I actually got it done this time. The winning combo was a 140gr Sierra Gamechanger and Reloader 33 for a velocity of 3560 fps. This is an average group out of the 6 that I shot at 250 yards today. Some were better, some were worse, but they were all under .75 MOA. This is good enough for a 9# gun shot off of shooting sticks.

I rarely say it, but this gun almost needs a muzzlebrake. The recoil is very fast and snappy, but manageable. The 140 Gamechanger wasn't my first choice for a bullet, but I'm sure it will kill stuff just fine. I don't think I'd want to hit a deer in the shoulder at 50 yards with this load though! :chuckle:
