8 shots not trying to be sarcastic, just wanted to be sure you looked at this.
This was the first target with a brand new barrel and new loads. (see original post)
5 sighter shots to foul barrel and see how much scope adjustment was needed
Next 5 measures out to be .566 with a pulled shot. these are shots 90-94.
6 shots with one I severly jerked so I tried the 6th but should have let the barrel cool first.Shots are #95-101.
This is from 260rem. model 11 Savage that I built with a Shilen 1:8 twist 26" chrome molly varmint contour barrel.
Load is 140 gr. SMK 34 gr. IMR 4895 CCI primer oal 2.754 which is .018 off the lands.
The target dots are 3/4" @100yds. I think my next option is a better scope, at 12x the dots were a little blurry but that is my eyes, I will probably have to go with something in the 16-20 range but need to stay at 3 or 4 on the low end because I want to use this for hunting. I think I am just going to wait for the new SWFA model.For the time being I might swap over one of my SS 20's.
Thanks for the constructive critism on the last post. I still think a lot had to due with the weather and the fact it was a new barrel and that was the first time shooting it.Any suggestions appreciated.
