Wolverine Load

Postby Dlooks » September 7th, 2015, 7:53 am

Figured this might be of some help to others.

My Wolverine did not do well with 100gr Triple 7 (2) pellets. 3" group at 50 yards and 5" groups at 100 yards. Did not like either 250 or 300 grains sabots.
So I glass bedded the lug, just back of the lug and the back of the action. I switched to loose Triple 7 FFG.
Load: Tried both 80 and 90 grains FFG with a 300gr Nosler polymer tip MZ sabot. Still not great, but better. 2" at 50 yards and 3.5" at 100 yards.

*** SUCCESSFUL LOAD***
80gr loose Triple 7
250gr Hornady SST
CCI MZL primer

This shot a .808" group at 100 yards. The bonus is that that the point of impact is the same for both 50 and 100 yards.

Good hunting!

Are you saying the bullet had no drop from 50 to 100 yards?

Mine has always shot incredibly well with 80 grains of 777 and a 220 grain Precision Rifle Dead Center bullet. It also shot well with 90 grains of Pyrodex and a 300 grain Hornady XTP bullet BUT I got no expansion with that bullet so changed to the all lead precision rifles. Good luck!
