Range day, 6.5 Creedmoor
Had a very good shoot with this rifle today, probably the best so far for consistent results. I did a bake off of 4 previous good loads, all using Sierra 140gr SMK's and AA2520. Started with a 4 shot group of 33.0 grs and it was the tightest group. Other groups were one at 6 rounds and two of 5 each. All were good
Benched at 100 with a Nikon scope on 8X. Also put 5 rounds of FC 130 Berger Hybrid thru it and it looks promising putting 5 into about 1.5". Will need to shoot that more, and that bullet is available as a component.
RM had a ceasefire so I could grab my target today.

I have been using the 140 gr Berger Hybrid Target bullets of late. Just finishing up my 2nd 500 rnd cnt box. Loading 35 gr of Varget in Starline SP brass primed with BR-4s.
Next batch in line will be 155 gr Berger Hybrid Target. Got 1 K of them ready to load up and test.
