All fired again. Fifth loading.
40x at 50y
More wind today than usual and I can't feel it in the house. That is why first row is to the left. I'm not sure why the vertical dispersion. Recoil seems straight...yet the vertical spread was well over 1/2" on the dots. Five shot group at the end was tight so that tells me that it is probably me. I'm wondering if or wobbly pedestal table is not helping any. Maybe try prone tomorrow.
At least it is all there.
I think the reliability of the PO has gond down hill in the last year or so. I have had a couple of packages that were VERY slow...and one was lost. I haven't had any opened yet though and my local PO has to know I shoot with all the brass I receive and send.
Btw-- what bcg did you get?
I must say it worked out nicely. All I did was rinse in water and dry. The baffles look brand new. I think I found my routine for cleaning my 22lr suppressors. It has not been this clean ever. I have used top engine cleaner, the peroxide white vinegar dip etc. The CLR soak then to ultrasonic cleaner is by far the best method I have used. The time it takes is minimal. Now I will not mind cleaning more often.
What did you use in the ultrasonic?
In my experience...the magneto speed will change poi, but will not significantly hurt groups size.
Thing is...it is hard to tell what you have with only three shots. I would shoot at least two 5 shot groups over the chrono before looking at the velocity.
Also...I don't know whether or not it is hot there, but if you take a rifle out of an air conditioned house or car and shoot it right away the first 4-5 shots will be all over the place. If you let the rifle warm up to outside temps for an hour or so then the cold bore will be true to the rest of the shots. I found this out over the last couple of months of shooting. Water condensates in the barrel and will completely mess with your cold bore shot as well as 2-3 shots after than.
Might be something to look at.
