Re: High power scopes and NQ mirage!!

Re: Copperhead projectile approval?

I am happy with Ken's Response and his product! I will be using 7 mm copperheads pills
When my stocks get low again . I found them vary accurate with the very limited testing done.

Re: 7 mm 178 copperheads blog

They need a short throat, ideal, 8 Twist but you will find that out. Sorry Geoff , these are the 178’s not the new 184 ‘s . Yes 9 twist maybe a stretch with the 184’s.
