Great. I was just about to mention that in my experience most new barrels will not really settle in with less than 40-75 rounds down the tube.Well after going to work for a couple weeks straight I got back home and got a couple days off. I went to the range with some loads I put together a couple of weeks ago. I had cleaned the bore with JB bore cleaner before I went so started off with a clean barrel. Things shot pretty bad the first couple groups like 1.5 to 2 min. Then I hit 77.4 gr of h1000 and all of a sudden my rifle shot.5 MOA. I tested 77.6 next and it shot .9 MOA. So I’m thinking 2 things happened today. 1 I found the accuracy node and 2 the barrel finally broke in with 80 rounds down the tube.
