    Great groups and it cycles the gun fine I take it..
    I notice both your groups you have groups of about .200 (the holes touching) and then a flyer opening it up to a slightly larger group. Is the flyer the third shot? or first?

    Its most satisfying loading your own pills and knowing that if you do your job, the rifle will do its job!

    Agreed! I didn't have quite the success with my 150gr blackout loads, but I've done some more research and I'm hopeful on the new loads I cooked up.

    I'm not sure on either. The 223 with only a 4x optic made it hard to see and I didn't spot in between shots, I find it easier to stay relaxed when I don't focus on where the last shot landed and just focus on each shot. Same story with the 300. Would be interesting to know though.
