Best 3-shot, 100yard group to date is 0.134" on centers ( at 3840 fps), then when pushed to 4000 fps groups open up to just under 0.250". At 620 ft sea level and 37 degree temps I decided to only use the 4000 fps loads for live varmint to save any throat erosin, bench shooting eats up a larger amount of ammo. The barrel is a E.R. Shaw, S.S. 1.250" straight no tapper, 26" length, action bedded and pillered, 24X optics. With a 1-12T and 66grain pills, 800 yards would be with in reason to take varmints
I am looking forward to this 25-06 build thou
