BTW, one heck of a group with BH209 there, what velocity were you getting?
Using the posted velocity of 3 T7M pellets, it would be right around 2350 to 2400. Bestill uses 100grs by weight and has shot through a chronograph at 2,400 I believe.

His reason is he works for someone else and he can't get a FREE rifle for himself. I know he won't get an UF rifle for free, that's pretty much a fact.

As for that group, I was definitely on my "A-game" that day. The weather conditions were absolutely perfect (a rarity) and I took a lot of time between shots. Which by the way, I swabbed one patch between shots. Its starting to get tough to shoot with the weather just getting hotter. I have a couple different sample packs of sabots I need to try out. Its a lot of fun taking pokes at 400 yards.

The Leupold has the CDS turret, which was designed to shoot a 300gr SST using 3-T7M pellets at 2,350fps. While experimenting, I matched the load to the turret. Without a chrono, I'd still estimate 2,350 +/-.
