Yeah like the others suggested clean your barrel of all other jacket material. That's generally your best bet to get accuracy out of monos or even some of the bonded bullets like the AccuBond. I found the Partitions to be forgiving of other jacket material. I know Chub Eastman took a moose with a 165 gr Partition out of a 30-06. I felt it was a bit light but he had no issues with it and I can't argue with someone with his knowledge or experience.Ok my wife has a moose hunt coming up, she’s going to use her 308 savage. I have it shooting 150g Sierra pro hunters 1/2” or so. I also have it shooting 168 Sierra tmk 1/2” or better. So I wanted a heavier and better penetrating bullet for the moose hunt so I ordered some 166g shock hammers. Anyways I run a Satterlee latter test with them had a flat line at 41.8-42. So I loaded 41.9 and grouped them and they shot a 2” group. Kind of disappointed so far. Could it be the seating depth? The tmks took some work with seating depth to get them to shoot but when I got it they shoot good. The powder used was varget, primers Winchester large rifle, and Winchester brass that’s been prepped. So I’m just kind of worried with getting closer to hunting season. Velocity was 2707 for 41.8 and 2706 for 42g. Any advice would be great. This gun does have a 20” barrel too.
