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.

87gr
2628 fps
2626 fps
2579 fps ???

I called that dropped shot so it would have been a one holer




90gr
2731 fps
2743 fps
2713 fps




93gr
2829 fps
2811 fps
2802 fps
