RE: NorCal's RRT
Those groups are much better than they were a few months ago! Custom barrel was worth the money.
At 100 a 10-12 mph wind ain’t gonna make much difference. The horizontal is likely a difference in how the gun is held. Depending on where it sits on your shoulder (left/right) it will throw a shot left or right. Depending on how your hand holds the stock it will pull a shot left or right. Depending on how your finger touches the trigger can make a difference. If you are not perfectly straight behind the rifle it will make a difference. Depending on how you pull the trigger will make a difference.
If you can take Greg’s class you will learn to tell why those fliers are there and therefore evetntually eliminate them. I still get fliers as you know from my targets. But I know it should have been a flier and what to do to fix it.
I think my biggest issue to work on right now is breaking my NPA after each shot. I get so OCD about my brass flying out of the chamber and getting flung into the pile at the public range. I should just take a coil off the ejector spring.
Your correct that the custom barrel was well worth the investment. Now I can enjoy my rifle when I shot. I don't come home frustrated from shooting groups.
Taking Greg's class is for sure on my want to do list. Just a matter of commitment to doing it.
RE: NorCal's RRT
Got up early yesterday and made a quick range trip. Took out my AR which I haven't shot in a long time. My first ten round group. The ring is 1", so I'm right at 1 MOA. Really please with that for this gun. I got to stretch this out out soon.
Then I shot some OCW groups. I did a pressure ladder last week and between that and other loads posted here on Gunhive I came up with a range of 41.0-41.9 grains of 4064. I feel like all these were pretty good shots and I did blow any of them. My vertical looks great, but I'm curious as to why I have so much left/right. It was slightly windy with a L-R 10-12 MPH breeze.
It looks like the loads climbed ever so slightly as I went up, but maybe thats just me. At this point I may just load up some at 41.5 grains and play with seating depth, IDK.

Our society has made morality uncool, old fashioned, a backwards way to live. If people could just learn to live by a basic set of morals, we'd be a much better place. Just take a look around online, how quickly people threaten others lives, or wish ill onto someone. Do they really mean that what they say? I know that I say only what I mean.
RE: Looking to leave your blue state for a red one???
Yeah, except the sad part is that many californians leave california for somewhere "better," and then try to turn wherever they end up into california.
Your 100% correct on that. Oregon and Washington are prefect examples.
RE: Brittel's RRT
I don't know if 308 is cheaper or not...all I know is that the 185 bergers sure put a dent in my wallet. They do shoot really well though.
Part of the reason I went with 308 was because it is such a popular round I just couldn't see myself not having one. Part of the reason was barrel life. I like my 308 barrel...but it is probably the last 308 I will buy.
I simply didn't want to go through the hassle of selling off all my .308 supplies to buy 6.5 or 6mm supplies. Plus I kinda like being a bit different.

As a CA defector I agree 100% with this guys point of view and think its great he's started something to help others leave their liberal hell holes.
RE: The Loading Log
Working on my test rounds. I did a pressure ladder last week and narrowed down to what I hope to be my low node. Also I used the posted load data on Gunhive to find out if I was in the right range of charges and sure looks like it. I have 3 rounds each of 41.0, 41.3, 41.6, and 41.9 grains of 4064. I also pulled some of the last rounds I had loaded as they seemed to be on the edge of hot. I reloaded five of those at 41.0 for fouler/sighters.
I have a business trip tomorrow and Wednesday, so I'm hoping to sneak away for a few minutes on Thursday or Friday to shoot these.
