This Sat I managed to book our Navy range for the Sat morning.
Equipment: Rem700 action with replaced Truvelo barrel, Leupold 8,5-25x50,308Win cal, reloads PMP brass, Lapua brass, 155gr Palma Match points and 44gr S335 powder.
We started the zeroing at 200 meters. It immediately became apparent that the two types of brass gave a different impact point of 2 inches. (the Lapuas were high and left.) I discarded the PMP brass (cheaper South African brass) and zeroed only with the Lapuas.
Groupings where less the 1MOA.
We then proceeded to the 300 meters distance. I checked my bullet drop which measured 14 inches over 300 meters. Grouping was again less then 1 MOA.
We then proceeded to have fun shooting steel fall plates.
 We arrived early in the morning with a deep shadow over the targets, yet I had no problem resolving and seeing the bullet holes all the way out to 300 m on the white paper.
At some point a Navy guy arrived to do some black powder shooting.
We then moved to the benches where I shot a 7 shot grouping that I can live with. See below target.
What has become noticeable is that the barrel (with about 175 rounds through it), is definately shooting better. The cleanup of the barrel has also improved, taking about half the effort then the original Rem barrel to clean.
Enjoy the pics below:
