300 rum shooting nice

Well I finally got all the components together for my latest.
300 RUM Sendero
Nightforce NXS 5.5-22 56mm npr2
Ken Ferrell rings and base
DE muzzle brake
Rifle Basix trigger set to 14 oz

I am pretty impressed with how this factory barrell put them so tight. These are the first four shots fired after two sight in shots.
Shot with new unfired remington brass and 82 gn of r-22 behind a 210 grain vld set right to the lands.
I was planning on rebarreling this rifle but with these result and an afternoon of simmiliar findings I really don't want to mess with a good thing.
Thanks Shawn Carlock for an awesome break this thing kicks like a mouse. I could shoot it all day.
May get even better with fireformed brass but it would be tough to beat that group. Shots fired from 100 yds. Other groups that i fired were in the .3-.6 range center to center. This .204 center to center was the best of the lot. But all in all a pretty impressive shooter for a factory rifle .......

I would not change a thing. .204 is an awesome group. That group is custom rifle type groups. Looks like you got a winner.

Thanks fellas, now the fun starts. Time to get it on my crony and start workin my drop charts into the next county. I was worried about the reloader 22 with the heavier pill, but its a bottle of powder i have had for a while and wanted to use it up. I guess you just get lucky every once in a while. It would not have been my first choice but it works just fine. Its nice not to have to shoot your barrel half out to find a combo that works well.
