Sergio, you can't give up on just one load.  You need to try several loads with that powder, bullet & primer combination before giving up.  I think you may be able to shrink that group, just try different powder weight.  We very seldom find a good load with the first load tested.

Then take the best load from that and play with your bullet seating depth.
Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

Hi

I had a bad season. I did not find the deer I was looking for.

But I already have the disease ;), I am about to receive my second Mark v, it comes in 300 wby mag, I would like to change it to 6.5 - 300, what do you think?


The new mark v, comes with a stock of wood, I have another plastic, also mark v, maybe you should change caliber and give a new face.

I have a question about whether I should change it or leave it at 300 wby magnum .


In my next post I will upload photos of the .257 groups. Bad groups ... .

I have a 6.5-300 ULW and Love it, but to be honest with you I'd stick with the 300 and maybe consider acquiring the 6.5-300 in the future. It's a lot easier to get ammo and components for the 300 Roy. One of the groups with your ULW 257 shows some potential, the third shot with my ULW usually opens up the group since the barrel heats so fast. Did you try playing with seating depth on that load, it may help tighten the group before you try another powder or bullet.
