    The only one I have ever messed with shot extremely well. Here is a five shot group out of a 6mmXC I built on a Rem 700 action. Mcgowan makes an awesome barrel. I have a few on some custom Savages and they all shoot really well.

    Paul it a PTG SS bolt that was rusting on me. So I had it titanium nitride coated. The only problem when I had the bolt made I spec it out for a tight fit so with the TNi I have to keep lubed up or it starts to stick. If the bolt was a couple thousandths smaller it would be perfect.

    That's at 100 yards. I like to do all my load testing at 100 to eliminate as much environmental conditions as possible and verify things further out later.
