It sure is nice when you can watch your rifle dial right into each node. Great shooting!

Three shots in a row then take a break. , sometimes two groups back to back.

This is from a raised bench shooting out the window of the shop, atlas bipod and rear bean bags

What was 65.6BR? What charge weight did you settle on? Looks like you have found a great node with RL26.

Are you jumping to lands or close to them? And barrel length if you don't mind? Nice shooting. Had excellent accuracy with 180 ELD-M with RL26 too.

We have 112 rounds through it now. The BR was fireformed brass and all we could do to make the brass perfect

We are 112 rounds in. The barrel sped up quite a bit. 66.4 is giving us what 67.4 used to. The extreme spreads have been pretty good.
12 Es, 15 ES and 7 ES. This gun has shot 4-5 shot groups around .40 moa. We have had some great groups. We are just about done with this one

Looks like it’s coming along great. I normally see speed increase right around 100 rounds fired and settle in quite well.

Where did you get those targets?

I need to try RL26 with a few 180 Scenars just to see how they do. My rig has an 8.5 twist as well.

This was the first time with the reloader powders. We just tried some reloader 16 and it did well also. I will have to try some reloader with my 195 EOL Bullet
