    Seems to work pretty good.
    Winchester cases and primers, 41.2 grains TAC, 168 Grain SMK. Dont remember OAL at this moment.

    Rifle is Savage 10-FCP, Sightron 6.5-20x50, Warne 20MOA base and Warne rings, bi-pod (harris style, 6" adjustable).

    Shot at 100 yards prone with no rear bag. 60 degrees with 5-10 mph wind. 2 shots on left are fouling shots. Measures .25" up and down, .875" left to right.

    Next is to stretch the legs a bit, 200-300 yards. Learn to shoot there, then move on as I feel comfortable with the rifle. gun)

    Nice. Sounds like a good plan. Patience pays off. When you get comphy at 300, bump it out to 500 then shoot 100 again and I bet youll be pleasently surprised:).

    That is my plan. Get comfy and then start back at the beginning. Mostly getting my DOPE for that load. Rifle is a shooter though. Thinking I am going to step up the bullet weight before long.
