Hello everyone, (this is also posted on Rifle Scopes forum topics) 


It's been awhile since I've been on the forum.  Last time I posted I was waiting on some equipment.  Well I received the last components just before I left for Fort Leonard Wood Missouri a month ago.  I just got back, put everything together, and have tested the rifle.  Equipment: Benelli R1 .300 Win Mag 24in barrel, Badger Ordnance Max-50 30mm Rings, and a Super Sniper 10X40 scope.  Ammo: (all Black Hills) 178Gr. Hornady A-Max, 180Gr. Barnes Triple Shock, 190Gr. Match Hollow Point, and 150Gr. El-Cheapo Crap for barrel break-in.  Conditions: 70 degrees F, 51% humidity, 7pmh tail wind, on a 100yd range.


I cleaned the bore 3X (bore snake) after everyshot for the first 12 rounds then 1X after every three.  Had it sighted in at the 12th round shooting 3 shot groups (av 2.5-3MOA).  Here comes the the good stuff, the 178Gr. was the least accurate at 1 1/2 MOA, 180Gr. came in second with 1 1/4MOA, and to no suprise the 190Gr. had 1 and 1 1/8 MOA.


Some people gave me s%&t about buying a semi auto due to their inaccurate history.  Well, I am pleased to say there won't be too many animals that the rifle will miss, can't say how the shooter will do.  All in all I am happy with the setup.  I can't wait to go back to the range and play some more.  I have a hunting trip planned in one week, YES!  Hope this post will help someone or maybe enterain others, enjoy.
