    30/284's First shots

    Well its been blooded, 2 kills from 2 shots.Although not at long range the pig was only 31 yards and the stag at a 110 yards. The large hole in the pig is the entry wound from a 155 amax ,perhaps not the best choice for such close shots . Both bullets did not make it outside the animals but they sure made a mess on the inside.
    Have tried Nosler 150 grain ballistic tips but couldn't get a good group and due to its twist rate it doesn't seem to handle much above the 155's so i might try some 125 accubonds for close stuff. Has anyone used these ?
    Thus far i'm pretty happy with my new cannon and Phil has done a super job making a very accurate rifle out of something that wasn't before

    Some 130gr ttsx barnes would be well worth a try. I never recoverd one and they like being driven fast.
    Not as much buiseing either.
