Will eventually get some ammo loaded. Hoping mine shoots as well as yours. Congrats.
I'd like to hear how it works out. That 1-8 twist seem to like Hornady match 75 gr a little better than some other stuff. This one shoots the 60 gr V-Max so well I might forget to experiment, although the 55 gr Z-max was right there as well. One oddity was the 53 gr
V-Max Superperformance it will shoot 3 on top of each other, but then it throws one 3 inches out at 100 yds. Placing yesterdays targets on top of each, has 19 rounds of various ammo in a 0.75" group including the slight difference in zero. Then that one round by itself. I've been blaming me, the wind, etc. but it persists. I'm out of that ammo so I won't be looking into it further. Good Luck!
