Lloyd I know what your asking.

The two rifles I post about you look at the accuracy and that was it you couldn't see past that and that those rifles could better than published velocity. You got your mind set on something and I not going to get into a debate with you end of subject.

    One thing about short mags, the shorter case can help for seating bullets and still fitting in the magazine. That does help right, the longer bullets do seem more accurate at long range. Even my STW with a Lapua 338 ai mag system only gets to 3.88" oal.

    dont take this all wrong. Nobody is calling you a lier. I still have to wonder though if muzzle flash might be giving false readings or if the light conditions effected it.

    I guess what id try to verify it is to do it again on a warmer day and move your screans another 5 ft away. Maybe youll prove us doubters wrong.
