Well here's the last berger 105 I threw downrange @ 200 yds yesterday...as you can see I ruined this grasshoppers day. VegasSteve was there to watch/verify the shot as well. I learned a few things yesterday about the new gun. It likes to be shot snug to the shoulder & It really likes 30 gns of varget pushing a 105 hybrid. Once I started getting used to the gun and testing the various loads out I had made, I was able to pretty easily get mid 2s to mid 3s @100 yds. Shooting prone @ 200 my first 3 groups were a little over an inch but then I settled in and was able to get them under and inch with the best being a 4 shot group no more than a half inch.

The final verdict: Gun shoots great and does what I tell it to do. No crazy "WTF flyers" & it should only get better with more trigger time.

Re: Gunsmith woes.

Here's what I was able to get on my last 4 targets at 100. 3 shot barrel break in groups..not too bad for 105 hybrids that close..

Re: Gunsmith woes.

30 test loads @ 200 yds here from yesterday...the gun shot best with 30.2 of varget with the berger 105s(bottom). those are .900 circles and the bottom group measured .430 for 10 shots.

Re: Gunsmith woes.

Yeah Ive seen and read alot about good looking groups at 100 yds that turn out to be turds at 200 so I wanted to get a sizeable result with 10 rounds at 200. She's starting to hum now.
