    [​IMG] Decided to see how the fireform loads would do at 300 yds. 107 smks over 38 grs. IMR 4350. Not too shabby (for a load picked out the blue and no development) is it ?

    Nice, definitely not too shabby.
    Keep us posted on how it does with a tuned load.

    Looks like sub MOA to me! Keep it up and lets see picks when she tightens up.

    Brian,

    It's a Schnieder 5c 26" hv 5.5. George at GA Precision and his crew( I think he has 6 fulltime smiths ) did the work along with truing the action/bbl , freefloat and pillar bedding. This is a Sako Browning that was a pencil bbl. but I could'nt get it to shoot .I think it will now /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Thanks guys for the encouragement, I will keep posted as I develop loads for it .
