I ran them out to 1 mile pretty well and used at a few matches. Ar2225 3120fps. After a couple of firings I then started to get some pressure so dropped a grain of powder. Ran at 3060fps. Then changed to 156 Berger EOL, at 3020fps. Same charge as 147 eldm. I have done one match, and shot them out to 2km. Trajectory wise matches my 338lapua with 285. I have also done a 130 bergeR AR hybrid at the same charge and was a mild 2950fps if I cranked the charge up they would probably do 3150-3200 easy enough Was super accurate to 400m but not as good further out. I’m thinking twist rate. Worked well on deer heads. I have some 144 Berger on the next order coming in to use and 153 Berger. Shot 800 rounds down it so far 1/2 at matches.

    I am running a long action and col about 3.075
    That is great performance. Being a 26" barrel it puts it in the same size class as a 7mm Rem Mag and I am guessing the ballistics would make rem mag owners feel uncomfortable ??

    Ftlbs wise similiar but with better ballistics SD etc it would be probably better than a 7mm Remy.
    You would have to go pretty heavy in a 7mm or a 300 mag ro match it.
    Long distance stuff of course

    If it's not a first round hit you need to practice more

    Does anyone have a load with the Nosler 142LRAB in a 1-8 twist barrel?

    @Cowboy how much jump with the eol? I have 3.00 mag length to play with. Worth a crack?
