First group with new 338 Lapua

I have an antelope hunt coming up this weekend so Earlier this week I loaded up a bunch of shells with 300 smk at .5 grain incriments and ended up stopping at 93 grains of H-1000 at 2761 fps. Next I loaded up 5 shells with them .015 off the lands and went to go shoot to see if I had an acceptable enough load for a quick antelope hunt. it was 90 degrees yesterday and it was almost too late to shoot so I just shot a 3 shot group with no cool down time instead of my usual 5 with cool down time between each shot. and here is what I got. I know a lot of guys on here have done better but I am very happy with it Makes me feel very good about spending the money I did on having the rifle Built. The group was shot from the hood of my truck at 200 yards. no wind. The group measures .036 center to center.
