Shot 10 shot string today with avg. velocity of 2835, ES 34, and SD 10.3. I was a little surprised that the group POI was 1/4" higher than normal.
    Why surprised ?

    I was surprised the POI shift was up instead of down.

    I bumped up the 135 gr A TIP load a full grain AND subbed in Win LR primer which work great in our 300 WM load. I'm hoping we can finally see some hope of anything interesting from 6.5 GrabAss.

    I finally got a load to shoot a no B.S. sub MOA group this Sunday. Loaded up 100 rounds of 140 grain ELD (I guess) Hornady bullets using the load that was in the Chargemaster. 42.5 gr h4350, 210m primer, ADG brass. Didn't really do anything new or different other than a new propane torch for annealing.

    Fired one fouler/sighter at 500 yards on the steel, then shot a nice half MOA 5 round group out of the Bergara Chasis bolt gun. After that, the gun shot 5 for 5 on the 1300 yard large gong and put down an MOAish group on that steel. Wind was very mild which helped a lot.

    It was nice to finally get a good group, and good long range results too.

    I followed up and went 7/8 at 1,300 yards. Needless to say, wind was fairly consistent. No idea why the load starting grouping real nice, maybe the second round of loads after stretching the brass a bit, as the first set was virgin brass. Regardless, I'll take it.

    You guys and your fancy 6.5ís. Nice work gents.

    Helped a buddy make his long shot at 1255 yesterday. And I think it convinced him he definitely needs a can after remarking about the light recoil out of my 7mm RM.

    I thought that steel on range 9 was 1254, not 1255 :-)

    With my p*ss poor Strelok inputs, I need no help with that! Had a .6 mil error the other week due to a few mistakes I made. Garbage in and all that.
