Short Magnum Caliber 7.82 (.308) Patriot®
part# 782PT150LXBT is loaded using Alliant Reloader 15 powder, a
Federal 210M primer and a 150gr Lazzeroni LazerHead™
bullet that is purchased undersized and then brought back to the proper
diameter by the addition of a special electroplated lubricant.
Velocities should be
around 3,270 fps from a 24" barrel and as high as 3,341 fps from a 26"
barrel with either a 10 or 12 twist, at 72°
The benefits of this
load are it's speed and laser flat shooting ability, allowing you to sight
in dead on at 300 yards and not hold above or below the point of aim all
the way out to 350 yards.
This 150gr Lazzeroni
LazerHead bullet has enough integrity, even at that speed, to retain over
95% of it's weight after complete penetration and can be used successfully
on game animals weighing up to 900 pounds.
This load can be
expected to shoot 3 shot groups at 100 yards between 5/8 and 1 1/2" and
between 2 and 4 1/2" at 300 yards from a clean, cold barrel.
While this is not
stellar accuracy by today's standards, for the hunter who limits his/her
shots to 425 yards, this load is a proven performer on 90% of the world's
Lazzeroni ammo part# 782PT168HPLR is loaded using Alliant
Reloader 19 powder, a Federal 210M primer and a 168gr lubricated Sierra
This load is intended to achieve a very high accuracy potential while
using a bullet with enough weight and integrity to take most big game
animals up to 400 lbs, even at extreme ranges.
Velocities should be around 3,160 fps from a 24" barrel and as high as
3,233 fps from a 26" barrel with either a 10 or 12 twist, at 72°
The benefits of this load are not only it's supreme long range accuracy,
but lower muzzle pressure and felt recoil help make it a pleasure to shoot.
This load can be expected to shoot three shot groups at 100 yards between
1/4 and 5/8" and between 3/4 and 2" at 300 yards from a clean, cold barrel.
This is a great load for long range shooting on
deer/antelope/caribou/sheep sized animals where pinpoint accuracy to 500
yards and beyond is a must.
