That 22 tube is a life saver! Id do every thing to stay at or around 22. I love packing mine and anyone that uses it prefers it over their longer barrelled rides. And the Bighorn action certainly wont disappoint, they're wicked. I have a TL3 I built on and its superb.

Velocity with the 230 gr eldxs is 2830 out of a 22 barrel during break in
Should speed up a bit
Es was single digit too
A little tweaking and it should be good to go

Nearing 200 rounds through my 7SST now. Pretty impressed at the performance potential out of a short action.

What kind of number are you getting out of your SST Cappy?

2925fps with the 180gr ELDM with no pressure signs. 3010 with swipe marks. Accuracy nodes seem to be every 100fps or so down to 2700. 26" barrel. Rifle built for long range specifically and not a packing rifle.

I found N570 was magical in the 6.5 SS

What bullets and primers did you use?
What kind of velocities were you getting

I got a 6.5 Sherman as well. Had it built about eight years ago. N570 works good in it as well. Mine has a 28” Hart. Get 3339 FPS with a 140 Berger. Started playing with some 123 absolute hammers and H100v. Couldn’t get the velocity I wanted. Think I need some R23.

I'm using 140 gr Hunting VLD's. 210m primers. got a comfortable node at 3248 fps.

the 150 matrix with retumbo was a solid shooter too.

I agree the 150 did shoot very good out of mine too. The 160 matrix didnt shoot very good out of mine compared to other bullets I tried.

Shot 225 Barnes ttsxs out of my 338SS today just over 2800 with a full case of H4350. Crazy accurate and no pressure signs.

I could only find the 210's around here
How would you compare varget to h4350 with the 338 ss?

In mine varget pressured up way quicker with less of a charge, especially with F215Ms. Little less pressure with F210Ms but still didnt get the speed others were and mine overpressured with less of a charge than others could get in.

I ran up to 64 grains of H4350 with a F215M and the 225 Barnes when I had a little heavy bolt lift, hit 2833. I dropped down to 62 at 2784 and a very good group. May be able to nudge up a bit more but that will do.
