Re: Hitting Right On With The First Shot And Barrel Preparation.

I have shot three 3 shot groups with this new 260. The groups were all in the high .7's to high .8's. Then I shot a five shot group that had four of the five shots in the mid .4's. It was the fourth shot that opened it up to the mid .7's. There is one thing I have noticed about this barrel that is different than any other I have, the first shot from a clean cold barrel is consistently 30 to 40 fps faster than what the load averages. Does anyone have a clue why that is? All of my other barrels are consistently that much slower with the first shot from a clean cold barrel. If anyone has a clue about that one let me know.
