    First off I want to thank Brianwinzor (much thanks!) for the loads he suggested. After barrel break-in and fire-forming I shot his recommended loads. I started with 54.5 gr. of H1000 and ended up with 60gr. I shot 10 different loads 3 shot groups. All groups were .020 off the the lands. Most were around 1 1/2" groups. At 58gr. I got a3/4" group. At59.5 I got a 3/8" group. (center to center) In my book that's a great place to start with bullet seating depths. Please forgive me for not posting for the next few days as my best friend is coming to visit after a 4 year absence. Thanks Mike

    It's a CZ-550. I had it rebarreled with a Lawton , 24" 9 twist so I could shoot 130 gr. Wildcat bullets. Mike

    Here is my 100 yard group from my Savage w/ Douglas barrel using 60.0 gr. R22 shooting 115 VLD's @ 3375 fps. I love that 25/06 AI.
