Good luck with your shooting sir.
I was *just* thinking of that quote!!!

Billy, i believe you're already in the grove and as has been mentioned, just start reaching out your range to where you want to be and maybe consider developing a 200gr load. When your barrel starts loosing accuracy then re-barrel and do the "full Monte" accuracy job at that point with one of the excellent 'smiths found here.

Re: LR hunting questions

Some the desired breaks are the Defensive Edge by Shawn Carlock and the Pain Killer made by Kirby Allen. They seem to work very well. There are many others that would work well i'm sure. JP breaks and Vias breaks are some other popular models used.

You may want to look into having the action glass bedded. This will help with making the action solid in the stock. This will only improve what I see as good accuracy from your rifle. A trigger job or a new trigger is definitely something you should consider. Make sure the barrel is completely free floated.

Re: LR hunting questions

Thanks for all the information it is been helpful. I am presently looking for a safe area to shoot at extended ranges, iam a member of a private range that goes to 500 meters but thats the max distance. I live in central Texas with all the growth in this area it is tough to fine open county to shoot.

Peace to all
Merry Christmas
