    Man was it cold out on the range today. It was a whopping +1 degree F. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif I hit the 500 round mark today and this baby still shoots good. Hopefully I will still get another 500-1000 shots before she goes completely useless. These are not the best groups this rifle has shot, but they arent bad esspecialy after it is supposedly 1/2+ shot out. The first group measured 1.301" and the second was 1.049". Both 3 shot groups at 300 yards, 178 AMAX infront of 95 and 100 grains of H-50BMG. Velocity for 100 grains is about 3200 FPS.

    I tried the 180 BARNES MRX today also. What a joke. This rifle has never shot any loads (including during load development) much over 1 MOA and these peices of crap shot a whopping 7"!! What the he!!? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif Needless to say, I wont be shooting them again. They also cost over a buck apiece. OUCH!
