Thanks for the informative response.
This rig has been ridden hard but not mistreated.
270 Allen Magnum.
Hot = 5 shots before having to retire cases due to no longer holding primer. No longer holding means when the primer falls out after hand seating the case goes in the bucket.
170 bullet at 3400
195 @ 3100
150 @ 3650
The cartridge is designed for a lifetime of taking game. I seemed to have used it for a practice gun with most shots at paper and rocks out to 1400+ yrds.
I'll have much more respect for the next barrel.
I can feel the rough bore ahead of the throat. Reduced the roughness considerably by thorough cleaning. Will give it good dose of Bore Tech Eliminator, seat things a little longer and see if I can milk a little more accuracy.
The shame is is that she held a solid 1/2 MOA for well over 800 rounds. Count how many woofs cudda been done in instead of rocks...
