I have been shooting factory rounds averaging .75 moa. Federals seem to shoot the best but I would like to try some HSM bergers. I will handloading 200gr accubonds and partitions to see how they shoot.
My rifle feeds great, and shoots great. My goal is to make it a 50-800 yard rifle for my backpack hunts. So far it is looking pretty good!
1. Did you/your gunsmith do anything special to the rifle to get it to shoot like that or is it just straight "out of the box"?
2. Love the rife scope combination. I am a Leupold fan too and like the scope you have chosen
3. The Kimber action, is it long enough (in the magazine) to handle the long bullets 208 and 225 Hornady match and A-Max without the need to seat them deep in the case (i.e. is there excess room/length with the Federal factory loads you have been using)? From their website the overall length seems to indicate that the action is the same length as the .375 H&H in Talkeetna.
I will PM you some specific questions on performance
Thanks in advance for your answers.
