BERGER 210 seated 4 thou from rifling
LAPUA brass, Federal 210 match Gold Medal primers,
80.0 grains H1000
avg 2853 fps ES 35.67 / SD 13.11
3/8" group @ 100 yds.

Hope this might help your situation in some way !

I'll throw mine in was at the range today. Rem 700 28" Krieger #10, 28 degrees out 75% humidity.

Mixed brass mixed amount of firings, but all fired at least once in my chamber.
208GR Amax not sorted in any way picked at random out to the box.
79GR H1000 Loaded .010 off the lands
CCI BR2 Primers.

I bet if I went all bench rest on case prep, weight sorted brass etc I could get better, but this is darn good.

Avg 2932
ES 27
SD 11

.640 groups for three shots.

No pressure signs might bump up to 80GR and see if I cant get some compressed loads.

"Let glorious acts more glorious acts inspire,
And catch from breast to breast the noble fire!
On valour's side the odds of combat lie,
The brave live glorious, or lamented die;" - Iliad, Book V
