    The gun plumber doe's good again !

    well gents early loads development tells me i have a tack driver , seriously pleased with the accuracy of this rifle considering i only saw it for the first time yesterday when i picked it up and its cost me under a grand!

    i had other rifle builders quote me between 1400 - 1800 for the work he james has done for 650(inc coating!)

    james has done a cracking job and his work speaks for its self , hope to get out next week to stretch its legs out to 200 yds and to finish the load delopment off !

    So to be clear please you stopped adjusting the scope after shots 1 and 2 and this is a 100 or 200 yard target?

    Cheers

    no scope adjustments at all apart from using a shot saver to get it more of less right , then cleaned the bore and shot simple as that , but when i do load development as long as im aiming at the bull i dont care where i am on the paper as long as it groups.

    i use my 50yd range at home to get the load about right then when i get time next week ill go back to 100 then 200 and 300 if i can and run it over the chrony .

    first 2 shots may have been me considering that was the first time ive fired the rifle and used that scope!

    A fine long-tubed 1" Burris if I'm not mistaken.

    I’ve found eye relief and centralisation thereof to be critical with this model and would recommend fitting an objective sun shade.

    All the best

    K ,

    yes it sure is , the 1/8 moa is a bit of a head scratcher but now im a bit more savy with it !
    "
    its on loan with intent to buy from a good friend from canada , he said "use it and if you like it we'll have a deal" he bought it new in 1998 i think he said .

    thanks for the advice on the sunshade i do have one and will be sure to fit it .
