    Muzzel break blew off on the first shot!

    Sorry but the thread job on the barrel is horrible. The threads were not cut at 5/8". My guess they were cut just under that. The brake threads look good. They only way to fix is to cut .75" off barrel and start over.

    factory ammo for 1:7 twist 16 bbl?

    +1, on that. My SCAR 16s has 1/7 barrel and it loves the 75gr TAPS gun). LGS had them on sale for $14 per box so I bought several.

    What am I doing wrong??

    I have a rem 700 300wm I was having the same issue. Every time I adjust the scope the rounds went somewhere else (1.5-2 moa). The problem was, the cleaner I was using didn't clean out copper. My barrel was fouled out. I bought some batches bore shine and my groups at a 100 went from 1.5 to...

    What kind of rings are you using and base. Is the base a 2 piece or one piece? Last, what kind of scopes are you using?

    308 subs

    Addition to the above, be very careful going this route. It is possible to have flash back or secondary loading a slow burner and so little powder. That's why I used 215 hybrids. They are so long that they take up some of that extra space.

    308 subs

    Well I finally got around to loading some subsonic 308's. I used 215gr hybrids with 31.2grs of WC872 and a OAL of 2.80. End result was 1023 fps. I started at 45grs and worked my way down 10% every 5 rds. This was done with a savage 10th with 24" 1/10 barrel finished with a thunder beast...
