    That looks very similar to my results w/ a .300RUM shooting the same 180gr TSX. The gun belongs to a friend and I just did the load development. It's getting 3500fps w/ a stiff load of RL-25, Fed 215 and RP brass. The gun is a factory Savage 116BSS. Did not measure the group...it's only three shots...but I held a case next to the group for comparison. The range was also 300yds.
