Just had my barrel set back due to burned throat and beginning load work on 180 gr Interbond and hoping to get a load with 175 gr SMK that will match POI, trajectory, and wind drift. Plan is to hunt with the Hornady Interbond this season, lost too much jerky meat with the 190 gr SMKs busting up the ribs last season. Also considering lightening up the rifle due to experiences gained. The Choate US&T stock may have to go. Considering Hogue OM with bedding block. Also saw some aluminum scope rings that appear to be up to the task. BTW, thanks for keeping my registration active.
