Love it! cant wait to see that beast up close. Kevin does great work, ive seen several of his rifles and they are both precision instruments and pieces of art at the same time.

    Ok guys....used some factory ammo last weekend to do the intial barrel break-in. In terms of copper fouling, the process went great. After shoot once, clean, shoot, clean, shoot, shoot, clean etc. through 20 rounds, the copper comes out of this barrel in one or two patches. In terms of accuracy.... not impressive.

    Got out to the range this weekend with some hand-loads....

    Bullet: 142grain SMK
    Powder: 44.5grains H4831SC
    Primer: Fed210M
    Chronographed Velocity: 2730fps

    Load produced a .236" five shot group at 100 yards.



    Also tested 45, 45.5 and 46 grains. The largest of group these loads was .75moa

    Hopefully will get some 140VLDs and RL17 to test soon. Want to get 2800fps with a 140grain bullet.

    Although I'll continue to work on the load, the 142SMK will probably be my f-class round and use the VLDs to hunt.
