I have had the pleasure of doing load development for a plus p lrkm over the last two days. I guess u cant really call it development when they all shoot good, but I either way it was a blast! My good friend wanted me to shoot a string with bergers and lrkms to see how they shot against each other. Overall they both shot really well with the smks shooting a tad better across the board. The bergers were capable of shooting just as good, but there was definetly a sweet spot. The smks shot well no matter how much powder or how far off the lands they were. The the smks the groups varied from .152 to .365 ish all across the whole string( several loads varying in powder charge and oal. The berges shot consistently in the 3's in the sweet spot, and I dont think weve nailed down that load yet. Now that we are close the load will tweaked and I am sure it is capable of shooting as well as the smk. We were using h1000 and not pushing it at all, and the velocities with the smk and the bergers were similar and varied from 2950 ish to 3050 ish depending on the load. We didnt have any pressure signs and I think if he wanted to he could push it quite a bit further. first chance we get we will push it out a ways to see how it does at distance. I shot this back to back with a canyon rifle and wow, the balance and feel was impressive. The recoil was straight back and I believe spotting your own shots will be easy. The flat bottom rode the bag very well. I thought it might be wierd shooting with your face right over the action but it wasnt. It was incredibly ccomfortable and I couldnt tell the difference at all. Before yesterday I had fondled one quite a bit and was impressed, after shooting one I was very impressed. I shot it back to back with a canyon that had a jewell and in my opinion this trigger was smoother than the jewel.
