I shot with a few buddies today, and seem to be making some progress little by little.

The 6.5/284 shot very consistent and broke into my very first sub 2" group. I backed it up with another, and the 6/47 gave us all a nail biter with 4 shots UNDER 1" @ 600 yds.

I was pumped!!!

I shot a group about like that with my muzzleloader this morning... problem is it was at 100 yards \:\)

Congrats Tim, what does that work out to be... 1/3 MOA!

Maybe you need to take that rifle and a bench with you deer hunting this year.

What action and barrel was it that you built the 6.5x284 on? Evidently you got the bedding right. I know you had told in the past but I've slept since then.

Both riles have BAT actions. The Hvy is on a M, and the Lt is on a B.
The bedding on both were done by the same guy, and is considered by many the best in the business, Tom Merideth.
