    And a couple groups after 25 shots or so. Cleaned barrel after every shot for first 25 shots and then cleaning after 4 shot groups. Seems like pretty good start. Shot everything 1" or less @100yds, whether factory 130 barnes or mild handloads in 130,135,140gr bullets. I'm shooting mild handloads for break in and fireforming the 7mm mag brass I'm using. I have a bunch of it and never shoot my 7mm mag Parker Hale. I'll be switching to hvy wt. high bc bullets after I'm done breaking in.

    B&G, thank you. It's been a dream to shoot so far. Loaded up somemore yesterday for today. 135 match, 140 B.tips and 150 btsp GK's w/7828ssc Mid to max loads to see what she'll do. My Range @ home only goes out to 200yds. First the cheaper bullets, then the expensive high B.C. bullets at my local LR club. Seen you drew WY also, me to. Deer and Pronghorn Oct 15 seasons. I'll know this rifle inside and out by then,hopefully:D.
