Dave,

Yes it is a 300 yard 3 shot group. You were close, its .341" This is my personal best. My previous best (shot w/the same rifle) was .427" 3 shot. My next best is .551" After that I have done quite a few in the .750 department. Trust me most my groups arent that good. Once in a while I flinch just right!

This rifle has done a few 2" groups at 800. So I know its a real shooter. Now if I could do these all the time I would be extatic!

I would love to go to Wyo this year, but dont know what this year hold in store for me yet.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Elarski,

I am glad you like the YP1000.

apb, it is acctually a factory rifle with a McMillan aftermarket stock. The rifle was bought as an experiment. I wanted to experiment with a 24" tube and a 11.25 twist. Remington came out with a limited production rifle, the one pictued above. It came with the same stock as the VS or VSSF rifle. It shot so good I decided to keep it and upgrade the stock. When I put the stock on it, it shot even better!

GA precision builds similar rifles. I belive you can even get one from them with an 11.25 twist.
