    Splash. Thanks very much. I attach some 129 gr SP results, but loaded with N165. I had picked this powder weight from previous trials. It is all Remington brass. The interesting thing about this set of groups is how the group size has tightened up as I have moved off the lands to 20 thou off. The middle target of page 2 is about as good as I can do. These groups were shot with the Mannlicher Pro-Hunter which I have since replaced with the Remington rebarrelled by Russell Gall (as per my gallery). I am still working on this load on the new rifle, but can't seem to better the 46.4gr N165 at 20 thou off. What I have noticed is the 129gr SSTs seem to go much better with the new rifle. Again 20 thou off seems to be where I am at and 45.5gr RL-19 is my current best result. I plan to pick a load for the 129gr SSTs and use them up stalking. I think they will go at about 2700 fps. Then I will return to the 129gr SPs. Regards JCS
