If the twist is 10" itīs going to work okay. Good luck,moose is my reason for this cocktail too - mine is 338 LM though.

I also had problems at first with Matchkings: my TRG-S needs a bedding job,these 300 grainers keep loosening the screws even at moderate velocities (2600-2700). That never happened with 250 Scenars so it took me a while to find out whatīs going on. Will fix. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

I forgot...was it you that learned you needed to add an after-market recoil lug to replace the anemic factory lug? If so did you ever do it?
