    Well guy's i got to the range to break her in and a little load testing,i didn't have much time so i wasn't able to do much fine tuning,but i ran some loads mainly just for velocity and numbers and have to say i think this rifle has some real potential.
    I started at 41.5gr of adi 2209(h4350) and maxed out at 45.5gr.
    There were three loads that were standout's for me so i will hopefully get back to the range soon to test for accuracy,140 bergers and smk's were used for testing these are my favourites so far,
    43gr 2209, 142smk,2789fps,sd: 3
    44gr 2209, 140vld,2818fps,sd: 7
    45.5gr(max),140vld,2908fps,sd:23 (still safe in "my" rifle, no sticky bolt, faint ejector mark,one case looked to have a very slight primer leak though.)
    These were all measured with a kurzzeit 21,i can't wait to get back to the range and print some groups, i have some RL17 i am gonna try too.
