    Sunday, before the Super Bowl, Junebug brought the BR AI over for the second range test. He only brought a few rounds. The barrel was clean. He fired two groups of three to fowl and warm the barrel. Then he shot a five shot group with warm barrel.

    Bug put a white tack in the hole for a photo opt. Bottom groups were warm ups.

    He had a few more rounds and decided to go 600 yd. After zeroing he had two shots left and he put last two into 3/4 inch at 600

    Bug told me he is shooting 2920 fps with a mere 30 total rounds on the barrel. He is using a near depleted supply of pulldown RL15. Dont know for sure, but would bet this group was with 103 Vapor Trail bullets. I felt bad, so I offered him 8 pounds of my pulldown stash, and I believe bug would vote for me for president...lol Really cheered him up!! He is good folks and may be the only soul I would have done this for.

    Just curious, having about 20lbs of RL15 pull down, what would be a good starting point in the 6BRA with a Berger 105 VLD?
