    Nice work! I shoot 95gr Nosler's too, except with 35 grains of Varget underneath them

    I did use varget in my 22-250
    But changed when varget was hard to get hold of

    Well done and nice set up!

    Which shot was the flyer? Just wondering if it was the cold bore shot. Excellent 3 shot group though, well done!!

    It was the 1st one the cold clean bore shot

    That makes sense. Would be worth repeating the group with an already fouled bore to see if first shot accuracy is affected by the fouling/residues in barrel. After all its the first shot that really matters. Great group thereafter, suspect load development is done!!

    I did repeating the group with a cold fouled bore and got a better group with out the flyer 1st shot very happy with it
