Range report - New Cri GI barrel

Went to the range to test fire my M1A after installing a new Cri GI 10:1 barrel.

Off a rest, 100yds, 14F and light breeze.

Shot 6 GGG foulers, sighters. They were on paper, about 2" left of aim. Put in 2 click to the right and switched to my match loads.

The first shot was center X. Pretty good feeling. Shot a 10 shot group, 99-8X. The miss was my fault.

I like how this rifle shoots.

Sorry, I tried using URLs instead of attachments. Are you using IE or Chrome? I would try Chrome.

Did anyone else see the pics?

I saw the URL pics. :-) Impressive target! Congratulations!

At 14 degrees I guess they all were "cold" shots...

That's a good group..

Just a little sign of vertical stringing, you may consider tightening the splines on the barrel which will afix the cyl. more secure..

Nice going.. Art

Can't tell for sure, but would appear a 10 shot group with 8 in the x ring, 80% X's is excellent and only 1 in the 9 ring for a score of 99 out of a possible 100. Sight picture/shooter, load, rifle, all seem to be working in concert. Obviously you recognize when the sight picture looks right and rifle/load is capable of keeping them in the 10/x ring, use that sling and give it a go in prone position.

Instructor, that's the SR1 target used for standing unsupported or rapid fire sitting at 100. If he is going to go prone with a sling then he wants the MR31 target.

Yahoo, Nice work, that rifle really shoots.

Nice group; great shooting.

Maybe _slightly_ off topic, but I would like to ask about the powder selection. If too far off topic moderator, please redirect to a more appropriate thread.

Many authoritative manuals draw a line in the sand at powders slower than 4064 / 4895, even with the M1A/M14 (not the M1) gas system. I have used VV N140 for years for my match loads, and Varget is only slightly slower than vv N140.

Has anyone experienced problems attributable to high gas port pressures with the slower powders and heavier bullets?
