    Okay got some time today to get out and shoot some more of the 80 grain Vld's. It looks like 24.8 gr's of Varget is the winner. I played with some seating depths. They started to come to life jammed .010 in to the lands. Here are two of my best targets of the afternoon despite me pulling the last shot I think this load is a keeper.[IMG]

    Good point for reloaders. If the ammo isn't quite doing what you want, try jambing the bullet .005, or .010 and see what happens. My 6mm shot 4" at 600 at zero on the lands. I jambed them, came down to half. It was crazy. But a lesson learned. That was with Scenars. Some say Bergers should jump, I say try them jambed as well during load developement. Remember, every gun is different and they like what they like and gray hair ensues figuring them out :) I will be doing a write up on why I believe jambed bullets work versus a jumped one. Just need to figure out how to use a pdf drawing with an overlay for my ideas.

    Jamming the bullets was standard practice in the days of Schuetzen. Sub MOA was the norm.

    Just got off the phone with X-Ring Accuracy…I contacted them regarding a project I had in mind, and wanted to involve them with another gunsmith's works…no problem, no acting butt-hurt about it…just straight talk and explanation of how to proceed…GREAT GUYS…if their work is half as good as their attitudes, then this will be a gem (I have no doubt it will, having contacted several forum members, and have received glowing reports from all)

    Bonehedz, Woody is awesome. I have known him now for 4 years and has built numerous rifles for friends and myself. The last rifle he built for me other than my MVP was a 338 Lm. The gun will shoot a 5 round ground a 1000 yards in the 3 inch range when I do my part. He has just finished 're barreling my 260 as well. You can't go wrong.

    Like I said, he was straight forward and saved me a huge hassle in coordinating this project…no ego involved, just 'this is what you have to do'…great guy…I can't wait to get the ball rolling on this…also talked about another project and his attitude was "No problem…we can do that". That can-do attitude is what made this country great...

    Can't get much smaller group than that, given that the projectile is .224" in diameter…I doubt you could poke a sharpened pencil into a tighter group…Nice shooting' there Tex...

    Amen. I tell ALL of my customers to strat at .000 (touching the lands) and adj from there. Jumping and jamming I think is a big part of how a rifle likes to shoot. A few like jumps but most prefer at the lands or jambed.

    Can I get clarification on "All Machining Work"?

    I am interested in sending my action and barrel in to be trued but I'm not sure if the "machining work" is included in that process. Thanks for your help-

    All machining work means cutting tennon, threading, chambering, fitting, etc. Before you send anything to us I recommend you shoot me an email to discuss. xringaccuracy@gmail.com Thanks and happy sooting

    I may have missed it, but what was the contour of the barrel? Looks to be a 1" full bull barrel but I couldn't quite tell with maybe a tiny bit of taper toward the muzzle.

    I love the look of a "truck axle" hanging off of a cleaned up action.

    I'm really wanting to get my Remington 5R sent off and rebarreled with a Bartlein 1:14 to 1:10 rapid gain twist and see how a 175gr SMK plunks out of that thing. Plus I'm really wanting to do an MDT Chassis for it as well.
