I would call this rifle a success!
Have been working up what I consider a decent load, and havent shot anything besides steel to 500 after load development. Yesterday afternoon I decided to actually just go and shoot it. I started with a clean bore. Fired 2 foulers and went to 500 for a 3 shot group. It measured 2.6 and feel I may not have broke the 3rd shot as well as I could have but not complaining. Went to 1000. Didnt group it but went 3 for 3 on the gong. Cool. I thought, lets have some fun so I went to 1200. Again, no group but 3 for 3 on gong. I only have one distance left where I shoot, and one round left in the box. Why not? Yep! First round hit at 1605.
Defensive Edge and Shawn have done it again! Thank you!
