Sorry I meant that facetiously per my sarcastic icon. I read an article (can't seem to find it) that Kimbers and Coopers are "literally" a custom rifle.

Re: Factory barrel break procedure

I would not call my kimbers custom by any means. "maybe" a upper end production rifle but not a custom.

Well I have to disagree on your comment to my two factory Remington 700 Sendero 7mm STWs.

Look at the pictures below from the results at the rifle range yesterday. These targets were at 100 yards.

The first target picture is the "Montana Sendero 7mm STW" with handloads of 140 Accubond, 82 grain H1000, COL 3.675 and that is the result of the 4 shot group.

The second target is with the "California Mint Sendero" 7mm STW with handloads of 162 AMAX, 76 grain H1000, COL 3.675 and that was the result of the 4 shot group. The wind was gusting pretty good (10-15 mph) from my left side to my right side when I shot this grouping so I think it affected this grouping.
