The accuracy wasnt what i was wanting but that was just the first load i tried. I used both Fed gold medal match and cci 250's with a oal of 3.780. My action screws are set at 45in lbs do yall think that is ok or should it be more.
Thanks for everything fella's
That's good news on the break...good news indeed.
As relates to the action screws, 45 in lbs is standard. Some will go as high as 65 in lbs in a composite stock with the correct bottom metal; however, you mentioned that Darrell worked on the recoil lug on this rifle....so he would have removed the action and reset it himself to what he felt was the proper torque. But I'll let the other folks chime in on this with their thoughts.
Keep playing with the H-1000...I'll bet you will find a load combo that the rifle likes.
