    26 Terminator

    I had this on the go for a little while now & finally got a decent chance to get it going with its final stock.

    It weighs 2.69 kgs, 5.9 lbs with the Terminator wooden stock in the pictures, 2.81 kgs, 6.2 lbs with a Carbon one.



    It has a Rem 700 Titanium action, True Flite UM 26" 1-9 barrel, Talley rings, Leupold VX3 4-5-14 x 40 with Alumina caps, light weight firing pin.



    It is my version of the 6.5-375 Ruger, shooting the Cutting Edge 120 at 3550-3575 fps & the Berger 140 Hybrid at 3320- 3350 fps into 0.5-0.75 moa.

    I wanted to use the Cutting Edge 130 but the 1-9 twist is to slow even with the velocity.



    I favour the solid copper projectiles for the extreme velocity cartridges, I find it easier to use one load.

    It will be interesting to see the terminal performance of the Cutting Edge 120.

    I wanted to use it because its BC is 0.5 which is higher than the 120 GMX at 0.45 or the Barnes LRX at 0.468

    The Berger 140 Hybrid with its 0.618 BC would be the best but I'm unsure on close up terminal performance

    Also recoil is interesting with no brake or suppressor in such a light rifle

    86-88 of Reloder 50, it goes faster with US 869 but I'm not a fan of it.
