I have started shooting and loading the .264 in the last year, and so far have been very impressed!
My collection to date is:
- 264 Winchester Magnum (Winchester M70)
- 6.5 Creedmoor (Savage 10)
- 6.5 Grendel (AR15 platform)
In order from left to right from above.
Does anyone else shoot and/or load for 264 cal?
What do I like about the .264 mostly?
Here is a good example:
264 Win Mag loaded to 3,100 fps with a 140gr Berger VLD, zero'd at 250yd:
100yd = 2.2 in
250yd = Zero
300yd = -3.0 in
400yd = -12.7 in
500yd = -27.9 in
600yd = -49.2 in
700yd = -77.4 in
800yd = -113.4 in
900yd = -158.1 in
1,000yd = -212.7 in
Oh, and it does not go subsonic until 1,640yd while still carrying 1,150 ft/lb of energy.
I used to have a 6.5x55 and kick my self in the arse for selling it. It was a sporterized swedish mauser. I need my head examined.
