Re: The importance of being Solid

You are right Broz. My rifle is lighter by a couple of pounds, my barrel is a #6 fluted, 6.5x284. I have a 338 Lapua in the works that will be heavier. I will try a lighter preload with this heavier rig since as you stated, I do have to be very consistant with my current, heavy pre load style to achieve my LR accuracy.

    Broz: What model of RedTac bag and size are you using? Is it the wedge style bag from RedTac - I have never seen/tried them but have been tempted to try one just from the looks of them.
