Imagine a 200gn version, neck a 30/378wby down and you would have a 1000m PBR :lol:

Hmm....with a 6.5x55 and Blaser Standard 1:8.5 twist for that calibre, I wonder how well it would stabilise? Sierra quote 1:7.5 to stabilise.

Interesting question, as it would apply to all of the Blaser .264 caliber barrels. The only way to know for sure is to try it.

Not trying to be a downer, but I am thinking it is just not going to work in the Blaser 1-8.66 twist. Even the 1-8 twist of a 6.5x47 or the Creedmoor Blaser barrels may be marginal considering how short they are. I will be getting a sample to try in a 26 inch Creedmoor 1-8 sometime in November.
