    Sound like it's a shooter.
    I'm thinking about a 264 mag ,any idea what barrel and reamer specs are?
    What bullet and load did you use ?
    Thank you

    Just a Remington Sendero barrel. I got lucky. It shoots 139 Scenars with RL 25 very well but do to bad vertebras in the neck I switched to 100 grain Barnes TTSX and 107 SMK. 67.1 g RL22 gets 3650 in both bullets! Norma neck turned brass and CCI #34's. It's a sledgehammer when it hits. My favorite rifle.
    My norm is cold bore only. Two shot group then let it cool standing up for 30 minutes. This was three two shot groups and three sighters with the new stock at 300 yards. DSCF3511.JPG DSCF3512.JPG

    If the barrel got a little bit bent, think of it as a good opportunity to whack someone you don't like with it to straighten it back out ;).
