Does the rifle have a brake?
I would back off to shooting 3 shot groups, and allow complete barrel cool between.
Each 5 loads had the same seating depth .20 off the lands .
I will start loading 3 shot groups
Yes they are 100 yard groups
Yes the rifle has a brake
83.8 had the best grouping again it was cold here in texas this morning , 40 with a north wind blowing
86 grain is max book load , all these loads where 2.2 grains below book max
These loads where a a surprising low recoil loads to shoot .
After shooting 180 Barnes 3200 fps
And I cleaned my gun till no more blue came out ,brushed it then let it sit brushed it and let it sit again took 5 hours of soaking and pushing patches thru it .
