New savage 6.5x 284. First three shotS.... Using HSM ammo. No clue the powder but 140 gr Berger. Funny thing, and I mention it due to the wealth of knowledge here with all you guys, if I shot one cleaned with 8 patches or so and shot again, they came out like the picture. If I shot 3 in a row, 6-8 inch spread.
Interesting. I hope it's due to barrel break in but I guess I will have to see
Mario, that's some awesome shooting there Bud. Gotta love those bughole groups! I know I do. Whatever you are doing, you are on the right track.
Good luck on the STW that is for sale. Hope you score on it! Let us know!

I have 150, Barnes 145 grain LRX bullets, and my gun shop has 100 more on the shelf.
????.

Bob, my local shop justly got a huge RL series powder shipment, everything from 10-22. He forgot to get me some 25, but just ordered 6 lbs. Some is for me, and some for a friends 338 LM. He also has a adequate supply of H1000, 4831 etc. But no primers, and very little brass. No H4350, or Varget. ( I use 8208 anyway ).
He also just got a boat load of Hornady bullets, except no 22 caliber, and hardly any 30 cal stuff!

Mario, we all make mistakes. And hind site is ALWAYS 20-20. I have a few projects that I need to do, and I have a few builds in mind as well. I have no doubt that my work will be going to Texas. I had the pleasure of speaking with Ben and Steve, and I got a very good feeling from our conversation. And when you get to see his work, need I say more. I'm VERY impressed!!
