Fianally got to get out this morning and put a rifle I had re-barreled by Devin to a bit of a test. It is a Model 70 in 270 Win. Devin installed a 24" Shilen #2 contour McGowan tube and one of his muzzle breaks on the action. He also squared the action face.
The results were great today at 261 yards witha 1/4 value 8-15mph wind with the 3 shot group coming in just over .5moa:
You might be surprised what I have in this rifle - as pictured I have only $1200 in it, including optics. Some of this is due to God providing the donor action very cheap and to Devin's reasonable prices, also a great blessing. With a little work on my loads and better scope I'm sure this rifle would get well below the 1/2moa mark.
Devin can work on anything and he is a working man like many of use and his prices are meant for working men. Get in touch with him at sin-arms.com.
Now, as pictured, the group is about 2 5/8" to the right of where I would like to zero it. With the 140grn accubonds, how much do I need to move the scope to adjust, considering the 8-15mph 1/4value wind?
Thanks all and God bless,
