I was able to shoot my new MOA Maximum on Saturday afternoon.
My first load was a winner.

Chuck MacIntosh was spotting for me after a quick bore-sight.
My first two shots truly made one hole: .272 outside to outside before I subtract caliber .264 (.008). On my third shot I had the grip slip on the rest and the shot was about an inch to the left. So much for that.  This is a 15" MOA Maximum.  I an trying an experimental aluminum rocker on the base of the pistol grip and it is almost to wide for the base I was using-I have another wider one coming.
Then I zeroed the turret and shot three more times.
That group measured .136 @ 100 yards.
This is a 15" MOA that is set-up for the Light Gun class at Rich's shoot.

Bullet is the 123 A-Max.
I chronoed it today, and my MV is 2715fps.
Scope is a Leupold VX-3 LR/T 8.5-25 with TMR (Tactical Milling Reticle).
Now I need to shoot for
shoot it for groups @ 500, 700, and 1K and confirm my drops against Exbal.
The match is June 23-25 just south of Sundance, WY
