    What was the twist rate of the rifle you tested. I could not find it in the article or on Thompson's website.

    Thanks

    JJ,
    even though the rifle you tested has the interlock bedding system, would you think it
    would benefit from skim bedding it?

    Thanks.

    It is hard to tell but as well as it shot I do not think you would gain much in accuracy but maybe get a little more stability.

    The barrel twist I believe was 1 in 8". I have already trashed my notes.

    For those who don'tthink the creedmoor is only good for 1000 yds where the .308 starts to go sub-sonic according to the sierra program (I can't remember which grain bullet but I believe it was 130 grain MK) the creedmoor was still supersonic at 1700 yards. Which I think is incredible. If you have the Sierra Ballistic Program check it out for yourself. It is on par with the 6.5X47 Lapua and I guess this is why the Army is using the 6.5 round now in the sniper role.

    JJ quoting you: "Thatís when I wished I had some 140 gr. factory Hornady rounds. I could have reloaded some since the dies had just arrived, but this article is about using store bought ammunition. Believe me, after I finish this I will be heading straight to my reloading room to try the 140gr." Hornady bullets.

    JJ am I to take it you sent the rifle back before loading an 140 gr bullets?

    Was this before the Dimension model was public?
