“Today we went out and shot 16 rounds through my build to sight it in and get an idea of how the desired load would work.

The brass was sized and primed with CCI small rifle primers. Hodgdon Leverevolution powder pushed Hornady 75 grain ELDs at 2975fps.

After getting on target at 100 yards, I shot two groups. The second group was significantly smaller than the first.

Buy Criterion barrels from Northland, tighten them onto untrued Remington actions and you will shoot bungholes!
