    Sorry guys, no update cause I found out I’ve had pneumonia for the last month. Got bad enough to head to the dr for the first time in years, so I can’t go outside for a while. Killing me to sit and look at the 3 rifles ready to test.

    Finally got it out today. Light wind but nothing bad. Did the shoot one, clean for the first 5 shots while I was zeroing it. After, fired 3-4 shot groups with fl sized brass with no other prep, pulled 210vlds, h4831sc. All 3 groups were just over 1 Moa at 200 yds. Stock is an hs that isn’t bedded for this setup. Still waiting on the manners eh1 it will be sitting on. Nothing amazing today, but considering it didn’t blow up in my face, I’m happy.

Pics are in order of 62, 63, 64, 65 and 66 gr.
    All 3 shot groups at 200yds. Think I will dabble between 65 and 66 gr next time.
