vanguard break in update
was finally able to make it to the range today, took with me four different types of ammo. I did not clean the bore from previous shoot. first 4 shot group using 120gn core-locs 1.6", 2nd 3 shot group using hornady custom 117gn 1.7", 3rd 3 shot group using win. silver tip 115 gn 1.3", 4th 3 shot group using same win. 115s measured .7" with the the last shot im sure I pulled so I didn't count it. this round of shooting was @ 100 yds., allways letting the barrel cool down between 3 shot groups, there was about a 5-10 mph cross wind
for the second round I set up @200 yds. wind was a little gustier, so I figured id just concern myself with vertical stringing, 1st three shot groups using the win silver tips 3.6". second 2 shot group using win. super x 90gn. .7 " !, third 3 shot group 1.6"
im not really sure what to think about this. Im not sure if the accuracy increase was due to the ammo or round count? Im thinking that instead of setting up @200 yds. if i should have started all over again @ 100 yds. and included the 90 grn super Xs. also with each group with the exception of the very first there was allways one flyer
curious to here from ya'll. for the the people new to this post, the rifle is a new vanguard S2 in 25-06 E
