Re: New Rem XCR = 7" to 0.8" groups???

Out of curiosity, have you checked the bullet diameter of both brands? The trophy bonded may be on the small side or even the wrong caliber completely. I've heard of rifle barrels being marked one caliber and being bored something else. A 270 bullet would probably load into a 7mm case just fine but it will bounce it's way down the bore with some pretty erratic results. But an under sized bullet is better than an over sized bullet!

    An oversized bullet now that can get ugly.

    Kevin, if I have a rifle that likes 300 gr smk's do you think it'll like 300 gr scenars? I shoot alot of paper and the scenar lists a .785 bc so I'm thinking about giving it a shot.
