Thats the one James...and for a gun with a used barrel stock and action it is wild how this thing is shooting. When this barrel was a 6x284 it was very frustrating....nothing worked...thus its being pulled. I still havent figured it out because both smiths who have chambered this barrel are very good.
I think I am going to stick with the RL22 since I shot my best 3 shot 700 yard group ever today with that little hunting gun and luckily it was within an inch of the point of aim. I am going to have to go back and measure but it isnt much over one inch...and even if it was luck (and it was luck because the wind was nasty and I had to use 3 different holds because it was switching)...I will take it. The best part was I had four witnesses and I was able to keep a straight face and say I needed a little more load work and walk off like I shoot sub 2 inch 700 yard groups everyday.
I let the nephews fireform 16 rounds by firing them at the 700 yard target. The 10 and 13 year olds put 7 out of 16 within 3 inches of a 2 inch target spot. I was prouder of that than I was my group.

From the guys I've talked to it seems like verybody is liking the R-22 , I personaly used IMR-4350 in mine a few years back it gave the best accuracy but the velocity was a bit low around 3100fps from a 26" barrel. The more and more I shoot the Vihtavuori powderes the more I like them , I think that the N-165 would be a good choice and from a bit more speed the N-560
