    After yesterdays trip to the range to do some load developement on a few customer rifles and shoot a few of our own I thought we ought to have a post with groups that make you go awww:D

    Here is one to get it started 3 shot group @ 100 yards Snowy MTN Rifle first load I tested out of the rifle:D

    Heres the specs on "Shrek"

    This 338 Lapua Rifle tips the scales at 9.5 LBS. We used a Proof research Carbon Wrapped barrel, SMR single shot action, SMR SS 20 MOA Rail, Mcmillian M40-A stock, SMR Muzzle Break. Cerakoted OD Green Barreled action to match the stock.

    Went out two days later to see if I could repeat for consistency.

    Both groups were about 5" off point of aim so I was happy with that.

    338 Lapua
    26" hart sendero contour barrel 1:10
    McMillan A3 stock
    CSR muscle brake
    Jewell trigger
