    Puchased a TRG 42(1:10") waiting for the final pieces of equipment to arrive.Base,rings,muzzlebreak(Near Mfg). Scope for now is a NF 3.5-15x56 probably end up with 5.5-22x50. Components on hand. Lapua brass,CCI250 & Fed215 primers, Hornady 225SST's for breakin, fireforming, and to get on paper, powders include Rl22,IMR 7828, IMR 7828SSC,V V N560, H1000.
    I figured this would be THE place to get some good info on what to expect and what direction to head to get the most out of my set-up.
    Thanks!

    CCI 250's
    H-1000 starting at 89 gr and work up toward 92 watching for pressure. Look for 2750 to 2800 from a 26" with 300's
    300 gr Berger OTM Hybrids .010" to .060" off the lands, test and look for best ES and accuracy.

    Congrats on the purchase of a great chambering in a great rifle. Prepair to be impressed.
