    I took my Hardy 7RM out to the range for load development and it shot moa or less for every charge weight. But when I hit the sweet spot I'm 5 shot grouping at 1/3 moa.
    What I also like is that I can buy a factory box of Hornady Superformace and they are about 2/3 moa.

    Almost as good as a standard Tikka then?

    yes that's why I own 2 of them. But the Hardy tikka is my favorite, real nice to shoot.

    Has anyone had any time with one of those SSRNZ carbines? (Looks as though they're singe shot?)

    Yeah, I've seen it and handled it.Single shot. It was a one off for Scott himself and apparently too expensive to repeat. It was beautifully made. 7x39.

    Hang in there. Your rifle has potential. Mine started out .75 to 1MOA...then down to .6MOA and with eventually a sweet spot load .132MOA. Takes time, as can be seen from my 260AI load devt thread. Shooting it yourself with a consistent rest will give you your accuracy benchmark.

    Happy to report that I took mine to the range yesterday. Groups were as follows: 1.0, 0.75, 0.5, 0.3, 0.25, 0.3
    So it clearly just needed some rounds through it after the barrel process. So to get that accuracy with factory ammo makes me a happy man.

    Sorry for being photo heavy and all of them being on the piss in one way or another. As you can see the gun shot better as it went, and think its limitations was the nut behind the butt. I rushed the 3rd and 4th group as i was trying to get them in before we had to stop to let some guys put some targets down. The 7th group was a 5 shot group and just as i thought i might get a nice big hole for it- i pulled the last one. This is just with factory 143gr eld-x precision hunter ammo. cant see any need for reloading

    one thing i have noticed after 20 rounds in there is a lot of shit in the barrel. Do you think a dry bore snake will help clear some of it out without cleaning the copper and carbon that it clearly likes?
