Well not really load development as the first load i tried will be hard to beat, After finally getting the rounds on the target the rifle was near enough zeored after half a day with just a bit of tweeking needed.
I was hampered with heat haze from the mod after only a couple of shots, so i was letting the barrel cool for half an hour and starting again.
I had some issues with feed from the mag as i had set them tight to max mag length but this resulted in a few miss feeds so i dropped them back a few thou and she was feeding nice again.
I was really impressed with the lack of recoil with the big t 8 mag mod although you coud cook an egg on it after two shots and a 3 shot group takes an age to achieve.
This prompted me to try it un modded well i tried it yesterday and for a couple of shots out in the open off a fence post it was fine.
But sat at a bench along side some farm buildings giving echo enhancement cradled on a rest was a different matter and not a very pleasant experience so thoughts of fitting a brake went straight out of the window.
I blew about 70 quids worth of powder and bullet heads through out the day as i just couldnt leave it alone and the groups just got tighter and tighter as i got used to the trigger pull.
Overall impressions are what a peice of kit ! awsome power and super accuracy straight out of the box even if it is just a bogo remmy that gets ribbed to bits on here.
I had to call it a day as i wanted to keep a few rounds to try on deer, so i gave it a clean and tried it for the last couple of groups at a 2" disc and couple after through the chrono which were reading around 3250
First was a clean barrel which was smack on at 100 i let it cool between shots and fired another three, i walked up to the target and could see 1 raggy hole at 1" higher i thought i had only two strikes in it and must have been a flyer on the third.
I put the target up the other way and tried again another smaller raggy hole but this time the plastic drum underneath the target showed a distinct tight cloverleaf punched into the plastic !
Jeeze i see what Chris C meant when he said they were boringly accurate its a tack driver for sure. i thought my .243 varmint rifle was tasty but i had to work at that, this has only had a load cobbled together and its a genuine one holer well chuffed cant wait to see what it will do at distance.
Got a dozen rounds left so hopefully i can try it out on something other than paper when i get the chance.
