Peterson Cartridge Review

I used Federal 215 Match primers. Primer seating was very tight, even more than I have experienced with Norma brass. A Hornady 285 grain HPBT with 93.0 grains of Retumbo was used with an average velocity of 2792 fps using a Magnetospeed chronograph with a SD of 8 fps. Three, 3-shot groups were shot at 100 yards with an AI AXMC with a 27 inch barrel using a LRA bipod and a TAB rear bag from the prone position. All 3 groups were under 3/8 inch with the average of the 3 being .332 center to center. We shot the rounds at 825 yards. They were very consistent even though wind conditions were 10-15 MPH. I was able to hit an 8 inch target with no difficulty. Thanks for an excellent product!

"Best 338 brass I have ever loaded"
