    I've been kicking myself for not buying them when they were $230 /1000 last year for a few days on Grafs.

    Fired some 3 shot groups this morning, seated 15 off from 36.8-37.6.

    Two "Cortina Flat Spots" appeared on the target, one from 36.8-37.1 and another from 37.4-37.6.

    Low flat spot (let's not get carried away and call .3 a node) shot bugholes, just little dots, very nice but smoked the necks black.

    High flat spot shot about .45, but all but horizontal, less than .12 of vertical across 9 shots.

    Naturally, I'm running a seating depth test with 37.5 this afternoon. Should be short work.

    Whatever the speed is I'll live with it, and I have whole-hearted confidence that when I run 10 of them over the magneto I'll have a good SD, always do using this method.

    So, all in all, I'll probably just shoot the rest of the box at distance, glue one in the neck of a scrap piece of brass as a dummy, and move on to something else.

    This little rifle is a lot of fun.

    Have to agree with Ringo on the .010 jump. In my rifle, my reloads came out to the same length as Lapua's factory loads. Makes me think they might know something

    Try the 120 Scenar L if you are going to shoot it in competition. Very accurate and consistent. 3000 fps with 37.5 g Varget
