I'm in the process of getting this the no. 1 RSI set up for hunting season. I've hunted for years with a RSI in 06' and have found that the el'cheap'o Remington Core-loks work the best in it (which is great).

I'm just wondering what off the shelf ammo people have seen the best results with their 7X57 or .275 Rigby's? Normally, I'd buy a couple different gr. boxes or different manufacturers, but that's beginning to hurt the wallet and the available space with partial boxes of rounds that didn't shoot so well.


Thanks

My personal favorite is the Federal 175-grain load. Shoots well in the 7x57's I've owned and gives you the sectional density / on-game performance that made the 7x57's reputation.

At some point I'm going to try Hornady's Superformance loads...I'm glad someone finally loaded some factory 7x57 to 7mm-08 velocity. Way overdue in my opinion.

I have found the Hornady Superformance 139 grain SST to be very accurate in my No. 1 RSI. 7x57mm. I recently picked up the Lipsey's 77RSI in 7x57, and will try these in that rifle as soon as I get a chance.

have either of you two tried the Remington Core-Lokts? I'm rather partial to them (cheap)...

Thanks for the input... I'll give the ones that you two listed a go when I get the scope mounted up first of next week...

I have a No.1 CB 7X57 and it does 3 inch groups with the Hornady Superformance 139 grain. The Federal 175-grain load has performed the best so far with 1 inch groups at 100 yards. Have not taken any shots further than 100 yards.
