    If that was the case, I would happily take 2 fouling shots before I group... That'd be an awesome group!

    Yes, shot #2 is the 11 oclock hole. I am impressed with the grouping of the new MRX bullets. I think they will be going hunting with me this year!

    i also workedup loads this week end
    300 rum sendero
    180tsx
    retumbo powder

    i started low and worked my way up.
    i was comparing my loads to the factory remington load with the identical barnes bullet
    i seated the bullet to max magi length still .100 off the lands.
    the stock remington ammo was at +2.5 in above the bull
    my loads started 2 inches below the bull at 85g of retumbo
    as i worked up my loads i watched them move up the target
    at max powder i was identical to the rmington load but the gouping was beter .5 grain below max.
    I ended up at 100 grins of retumbo.
    hotter than where i wanted to be but still no presure signs on any of the loads.

    Exactly why I shoot a foul shot.That is an outstanding group, three shots will prove the gun more will prove the shooter... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Well 92.5 went the wrong way for me. Guess I will have to stay with the 92gr. load or switch powders. Will stay where I'm out for now until temps go down. I normally get a lot better groups when it's not 80%. If that 7/8'' groups comes in any at all I believe I can live with it for elk hunting.
