My old custom 7 .308 (got stolen in '08) had an M24 barrel cut down to 20" finished length w/ an 11* recessed match crown and it would stack 'em. Even out to 1,000 with no problem. My gunsmith that built it for me took it out back and did a 1K test on it...Said it passed with flying colors. He shoots 1K Benchrest tournaments, so I took his word for it, that the gun would shoot better than I could. And when I got it and did some shooting....Man, he wasn't lying! I was blown away, even with factory loaded Hornady TAP 168 HPBT (LE red box) ammo! LOL
