I Have Shaners new rifle assembled for fireforming brass and barrel break in. Dry weight with out scope is 13# even.
I will post some finished pics soon.
I necked down the 408c-t brass and loaded them with 144grns of US869 with a 300grn MK touching the lands. For the heck of it i put up a target and set up the chronograph. At 100yds, the first group was .580 for three shots. Second group was .588 and the third was two shots only, .381
No cleaning was done for all shots as i am using the Moly break in system from Sentry Solutions.com Mike Rock advised me to use this system. (20 shots no cleaning)
The ave velocity for the 8 shots was 3345fps High was 3351 low was 3342. I used two different brands of brass during the test, TTI armory and Jamison. Both worked good, Jamison is harder brass.
