    like jimsim im using a 85 in .243 but not the varmint and am replicating his result it will shoot within a inch on most factory ammo but when it finds some ammo it likes its extremly accurate mine will shoot a 1/4 inch grouping with either 90gr sakos or 70gr federals

    Same here, 85 in .243 likes Federal 100gr SP.
