Range report for my new 416 Ruger Alaskan. :D

No load data available yet from any of the bullet manufacturers. I found this information for 350gr and 400gr bullets:

My preference is 300gr X bullets. I estimated 82.0gr of Re15 would be a safe starting load. The case is 100% full with this amount of powder behind a 300gr X bullet. Turns out this is a mild load, in my rifle only.

Scope: Leupold 3x9 Ultra-Light with LR reticle.
Load: 300gr X bullet, 82.0gr Re15, CCI 250 primer, Hornady brass.
Chronograph: 2644 fps & 2654 fps, 15 ft away.
Group size: 1.6", 3 shots at 100yds.
