660 too tight?
« on: April 25, 2017, 11:13:17 AM »
I've got a rhino .660 and .670 and have plenty of nitro H518 ammo and curious if y'all thought the 660 is too tight for that she'll?

My 1300 prefers the JH .660, I'm shooting Hevi 3" #7 and getting 265+.  Not Nitro, but a reference point at least.

Never shot the rhino, but IC 660 in all my 1300's and I shot the H321 loads with the 22" for a couple years and it was a laser!

Still curious if anybody has shot a 660 rhino 1st gen out of SX3 with nitros? Too tight?

From what I've seen most of the time .670 will give you a more even forgiving pattern. Some of the tighter chokes do very well but the core of the pattern can get really hot on a close shot which can lead to easy misses. Go chootem and see. Lol be sure to post pics after you do.

Waiting on my H518 to come in and I’ll shoot both at 40 yds for comparison.

I have! Gen 1 rhino .660 with 518’s and T558B. Both are hot at 40 but yield nice even patterns. I almost switched to a .670 but decided with my scope I would be ok at close range.
