If the primer change doesnt work then i would try adjusting seating depth a little more. You are dialing it in!!

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

Re: Barnes LRX Accuracy issues...

Not sure a primer will cause exact matching inconsistencies in two groups, but at this point I will try anything!

I'm still not showing any signs of pressure so I went up 1/2 grain and went for the middle of my two most accurate seating depths.

See what happens!

Primers will do that for sure!!! There can be many other things but I run a primer test if I see that kind of grouping.

Crazyhorse, how did you make out in the end with the LRX. I am having the same issues.

Next was the 127gr LRX with 43gr of H4350. Terrible! It was so bad I didn't even measure, but if I had to guess it would be around 3"! They are seated just off the lands and showing no signs of pressure. I was really hoping to get a sub MOA load out of this bullet to use for deer hunting.

I know it is the first try with this bullet but I have never had one start this far off. Any suggestions?

Barrel is a pacnor 1:8 @ 24"
So far my best groups with one rifle came in at .090" off the lands and the other came in at .180" from the lands. The .090" is in a Pac-Nor barrel and the other is a Christensen Arms.
