    Nothing yet, loaded up 15 tounds with 43.5 grains of h4831sc to go and zero rifle, break in a little bit and get a feel for the rifle. These were loaded with 105 a max's since i have a bunch. I noticed after i drilled and tapped my case the other day this is short throated, so here soon i wil go and ream the throat out further for the dtac's. I will post pics of the groups thrown together with the 105's. I loaded them about .002 to .003" from lands.

    I thought so. The virtical was no more than 2 " i am happy with that. So use to shooting my 338 norma that shooting something this easy and with such little recoil it throws me off.

    Oh that's terrible. You should send the rifle to me so I can do some load work and see if it can ever be made to shoot. :D

    Great job on the build. Great shooting. Enjoy.

    I know it is a terrible group, but i think i may give it a chance and see what i can do with it. I put on long range shoots in eastern wa. So i am hoping to play along with the small game courses this winter.

    The percentages used in that marble look different. Was just curious as I really like how yours turned out
