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.
