APS XP-100 338 AX group

Put 5 more rounds through the AX today and TACMAN shot 5 too. This is the first time I have fired ten rounds before cleaning it.
Pic is at 100 yards off of a bi-pod.

From a clean barrel, the first shot is high, then the next four looked pretty nice.
Not counting the fouler shot, the four-shot group size was .432
This about the same size group I shot last time I shot it. Seated bullet a tad further out today and dropped the charge to 97.0 grains of Retumbo. Bullet is 300 grain SMK. I think it is going to be a shooter

Nice shooting Ernie
It will shoot better the farther out you get

Nice goin', Ernie. Can't wait to see what you do with it when you stretch it out some more and this fall as well. Jon

The group measures 11.65" on my screen!
Also appears to be a huge bore

Maybe the diameter of the .338 SMK expands exponentially (whatever that means) as it goes down range...

I think that might be an understatement. Congratulations Ernie. Nice shooting.

That will work, Ernie!
I still can't get over that magnitude of a cartridge and peformance in a handgun. Hopefully you can smack a big critter with it this fall.
