Well, the weather has let up and I got the tractor out and opened the road up out to the range. I got some shooting in before the snow got deep in January, but got snowed in till last week. Anyhow, the new Hart 7-08 is showing some promise. I have tried a few choice powders but stuck with 140gr Sierra Game Kings as that is what I plan to hunt with. I have tried Varget, IMR8208, IMR4895, RL15, IMR4064 and CFE223, so far. All of them, except the CFE, shot at least one sub MOA group and a few with several way under. I got a smokin deal on 5lb of the CFE so I grabbed it, in these troubling times I'll make it work in something. I have a few more powders I wanna try before I pick a winner, but any of these would work quite well. Also, I picked up a BLR in 284 last fall without a magazine. Searched high and low and found a factory magazine and will this sucker shoot! Old surplus 4895 and 140gr Rem CLPSP do very well.

Very nice groups MapleHill.

It's going to be a shooter. I see several groups that I think show definate promise. 

Keep us updated.

In my 6.5-08 and 7x57, I've found Varget and 4895 work best.
