    Pretty much happy to call it quits with that sheet Dave. Just shoot over multiple days in different temp ranges to confirm consistency.

    PM'ed you the projectile details.

    You should have buried the PH & TX 1200 still see one of those come up on TM every now and then.

    @ebf what is the variable you are testing in those group? powder charge or seating depth?? Or is it more conformation of your end load?

    He would have mis dialed his dope. Flinched and the stupid thing flew into the projectile.
    No other possibility accepted.
    Or did his missus shoot it?

    Anyway, that old thing would shoot groups like A all day long and the majority were like C with issue F4 ball ammo.
    Malcolm had one that would happily make head shots all day at 600... he shot a 5 shot 2.5" group with it at 600 not long before he got out. Some of those rifles were awesome and he was doing a lot of shooting at the time.

    I have some plans to run a old style sniper match at some stage (500 and 600 yards) - Hawkins position, fire on command, sand bag barricades, loop holes, camouflage nets... Would be great to have a few entry classes (service pre-1990, service post-1990, and open class) but I am pretty sure most people will want to just shoot in open class.

    I am sure Malcolm does as well but I remember the badge shoot to the detail.

    I shot a 245 in practice with that PH rifle missed one walking @500. My partner did as well and straight after me. He did it with hot barrel.
    Best score with the AW was only 235.
