We scoped it recently, some firecracking and such, however even-so "smith" gave me the nod to keep shooting! Rifling it-self was good.. nothing extreme, no need to re-barrel (yet.) My last group was 3-shots into 4.75" at 725 in-fact. Took 12 to re-foul after a thorough scrubbing to have it group like it "can" But the barrel gives me about 50 (like the 725 group I mentioned) before over-fouling and my groups open noticeably... So I "know" my rifle!! ..the way we all should*
(I wish I could figure out why my attachment-link disappeared.. I'd attach pics showing groups and these dent/differences I wrote about*) ...maybe Len changed something regarding attachments ?? Used to attach no problem. I don't know what happened.
...anyways, action is glass/pillar bedded into an MPI silhouette thumbhole. Loads are obviously my own handloads*
