Ya, I'm pretty jacked about the whole package. I'm going to send my SIII in to see if they can calibrate it while the barrel is being treated. Tomorrow, I hope a bear shows his face......Rich

Goodness Gracious! Those are the guns you almost hate to shoot. You better get a new one built so you can save that one for very special shooting occasions!

It's the best I've ever had! I recommend that you save up your beans and buy a BAT action. I hated to spend that kind of $$$$$ but I'm realy glad that I did. I have all the good stuff in a pkg. and can now just replace barrels when necessary....rich

so do you think that is most of where the accuracy is coming from, the action. I know you said you were very happy with the barrel too. And the cartridge is playing some kind of role too.

Ya, I think the whole pkg. came together. You don't get a rifle that shoots like that unless EVERYTHING is right. The barrel was exceptional according to my smith. I think the cartridge is a good design too, and so far, case life is very good for the velocities I'm getting. I really like that straight wall design with the 40 degree shoulder coupled with a good neck. Everything stays put in the chamber with little stretching etc. Again though, it all starts with the foundation and that BAT action is stiff and true.........Rich

A 0.07" 3-shot group at 100 yds is simply sick Rich. In a very wonderful way of course.

No crap huh! I'd be cool with my 7lrm shooting 5 or 6 times worse than that when it comes back (thats a .35 or .42)
