450 Vincent Long

The following data was developed by my friend Roy Vincent in a rifle he has built himself on an FN Mauser, and a Douglas 24" barrell. RWS brass and Federal 215 primers were used. Some of you might wonder about the discrepancy of the velocities with Reloader 15. Apparently, these are the results Roy got from his chronograph.

The following data was developed in a rifle built on a Weatherby Mk V action, and a Dan Lilja barrel, finished at 26". It is the same barrel as we used for the 450 Vincent Short. We just ran the longer reamer into it.
