    How far off will a cold bore shot typically be off at 100 yrds, and will it be consistant? If anyone has this rifle, what loads are you using?

    Unfortunately there is really only one to find out, and that is to do it. It varies too much from rifle to rifle and how you clean it, what type of oil you use etc.

    I do have this rifle and use Winchester brass, 180 grain Accubonds, 78g R22, Fed 215M primers, velocity is 3025fps. My cold bore shot from a clean barrel is usually 1" high compared to fouled barrel groups. Once the rifle is fouled, cold bore shot is in the group so no correction required. Really seems to vary from gun to gun. This is a great rifle I have used on several bull elk, last year shot a nice 5pt at 508 yds.
