    264 Win Mag

    Here is 264 Win Mag I built for a customer.



    GSR Berserk Stock, Bartlein Barrel, Shiny Defiance action, Timney Calvin Elite Trigger.



    Its not the lightest build around & wasn't meant to be.



    Shoots pretty well



    The 140s will easily go 3400 + FPS with the 28" barrel, haven't shot it for accuracy up there yet

    Hi Greg,
    Have you had a chance to try some 147 eldm?

    Hi Greg, what powder and charge did you use, I must get back to mine one day, and try 140 or greater, I run 130g Accubonds, at about that speed,
    Have a couple lbs of Reloader 33 to try at sum point.
    That's quite good speed for a 140gr, be a nice rifle for shooting at longer ranges, Nice build.

    RL33 is what I used, can't understand why Guys use a powder that only 2/3 rds to 3/4 ers fills the case ?

    No not yet, the owner might but being so far out of their comfort zone they will be pretty messy

    Tend to agree, but there is a lack of published data, from the likes of Hornardy, Nosler, Hodgeon on new powders, suitable for the .264 win,
    chainsaw and 300_BLK like this.

    Damn right!

    My current load only pushes a 140 SST at 3003fps... kills everything well though.

    I'll give some RL33 a try
    Warm Barrels!
