    Modifications.

Weaver style mounts purchased and T-16 mounted.




120g Nosler 4350 52.5g

120g Nosler 4350 52.5g

125g Nosler 4350 54g
Conclusions: The 120g Nosler bullet is coming along nicely. The 125's are not.

While I was at the gun store I picked up a
Leupold VX-II   2-7 x 33mm for use later.


05/24/04   More Nosler 120g testing and the first Nosler 140g loads.
Changed to 3 shot groups instead of 5 shot.


120g Nosler 4350 53g
Velocity 2860
1/8" 3 shot group

140g Nosler 4350 51.3g
Velocity 2732
2 7/8" 3 shot group

Conclusions: The 120g Nosler Ballistic Tips are working! And as far as the 140g Nosler Partition bullets . . . I think I've been haulted in my tracks by twist and barrel length. Oh well, they'll get loaded down and used up.
