Thanks for replies, spent 400+ on bullets,powder,brass,
ended up with 83.2 gr of 7828 with 180 gr hornady sp (3070)
with a ocl of 3.72, have the redfield base and leupold rings The barrel was glassed all the way I floated it to the action you can run a doller bill under it freely,this helped it the most,sorry I had to go to the wussy pad as i was shooting aprox. 70-90 shots each saturday starting early
(cold out) and going late cold then too.
I have not did the torqe thing on the windage turrent! even if the knob is loose dosnt the shaft (that the knob tightends down to) stay at the same place? help me on that one, Let me say this I know this is embarresing but many years ago after hunting I put the thing in the case and left it there for a couple of years [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] (got into muzzeloading)
well you guessed it when i pulled it out of case HELLO RUST [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]
and I can see some little pits in between the rifling at the end of the barrel who knows what that is doing to it!
tried sierra,barnes,nosler partitions,noslerBT,berger,
4831, 4350, retumbo,RL-22 the gun hates boat tails,
will that mark V action be worthy of a different barrel?
I would really like to hunt with this puppy if I had the confidance that it would stay on. sorry I got a PH call and i got to go, WHAT to DO???

Thin floated barrel? Chances are it will never shoot without a pressure point!
