28" Benchmark. Its a 4.5 contour .670 muzzle if I recall correctly 9.5 twist 5R rifling.
Got off a 14 hour nightshift this morning at 8am, loaded my stuff and the kids and headed for the range. Of course running on limited sleep, I forgot my targets
So I rummaged through the garbage cans and found some that would work, a little tape and I was good to go.
I loaded 3 rounds of 87, 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, and 93gr of H1000
Primarily to test to see where pressure signs were gonna show up and secondary for a limited accuracy test.
Set my scope to 10x and started shooting. The thing is a pussycat to shoot as well.
My best groups were with 87, 90, and 93gr. A definite accuracy pattern. Every 3 grains the groups would be incredible. Inbetween those was nothing to brag about.
2579 fps ???
I called that dropped shot so it would have been a one holer
