Thread: Amazing what seating a bullet a smidge more can do !

    Amazing what seating a bullet a smidge more can do !

    The group on the right @ 15 tho off the lands, on the left 20 tho off the lands.

    I shot another 3 groups after that just to make sure it was'nt a fluke.

    Were they 3 or 5 shot groups and was the first group from a clean barrel?

    Good shooting.

    Less of the Blaser, although i am temped by the R8 but i have to re-stock the "account" that does'nt exist first!

    Mines a Sako L691 Finnbear semi custom 30-06 i had re-barreled by jager SA then i had a lump chopped off, down to 16" all 3 shot groups from dirty barrel using my reduced tracking loads and 170gn lapua naturalis, using a 3MOA Bushnell red dot scope.

    Doesn't surprise me at all. Seating Depth is critical to consistent accuracy.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    Very good work. Group size will shrink further if you select a target that complements the reticle in your scope and allows you to maintain a consistent POA.
