This time with a 2-7x Burris pistol scope on top.
Now that I'm building a Bolt Action Specialty Pistol in .308 Winchester, I took the .308 barrel off my MOA Maximum and installed the .338-06 A-Square barrel again.
I had already worked up a load in the past using 200gr Ballistic Silvertip bullets. So, all I needed to do today was zero the barrel. Did some math with the 2,528 fps velocity and decided a 220 yard zero would put me 3" high at 100 yards and 8" low at 300 yards. That would work for my purposes.
Set up the rest and worked on the zero.
Getting what I was after, I moved to the 300 yard line and shot at the steel plate.
The Holland Radial Brake works pretty darn well as you can see in the video. Here is a picture of the max muzzle rise in recoil.
Not bad at all. Blast is pretty wild, but the recoil isnt. The brake actually dips the muzzle down and back!
I've not taken anything with this barrel yet. So, I will work on rectifying that this year.
