Try the 300 gr. Bullets with the same powder charge and your group will tighten


\:D

Nothing about changing a bullet weight will help him. Your idea is funny.



Uhh.. ummm??? Your telling me that different grain bullets will not affect accuracy?? I tried the 250 gr. Xtp and shot about 1.5 in groups at 100 when I moved to the 300 grainers it shot 1" or less. Explain

I explained above. It's a sabot/bullet fit issue.

Your suggestion to change bullet weight is wrong with respect to his issue.

Plain and simple.

Before I go to bed Rockhound, send me your gun. I'll send it back with his load and a 1/2 moa group.

300 gr barnes is an excellent bullet, but not a fix for his problem.

I've never shot a Barnes out of my savage, so I couldn't tell you if would help or not.

I was talking about the 250gr xtp/ black MMP vs. 300gr xtp/ black MMP

EWC, you have peaked my interest. Please explain exactly the aspect of bullet sabot fit that you speak of. Are you saying that his gun will shoot any bullet 1/2 moa?

I'm not getting in the middle of this, but I will say that Judd (ewc) was shooting these things before most of us knew they existed. I've seen groups he's shot (pics) that would make a varimint hunter proud at 300yrds. The man knows what he's talking about with smokeless muzzleloaders.

I respect the fact that EWC has been in it a long time. I am eager to learn and share information. As I stated. EWC, you have peaked my interest. Please share.

I never said his gun would shoot ANY bullet into a 1/2 moa. I said I could get his gun to shoot 1/2 moa.

I have offered to help the OP. My point about the bullet wt to RH was not meant as a slight to him, it was just not good advice to keep swapping variables.

The OP has the answer right in front of him. If he wants some help, I will help as much as possible.
