M1,
None of my 358 handloads using 10X have exceeded 58,000 in either a savage 99 or a blr using an oehler to check chamber pressure. I'm not sure on the quickload stuff though or how you settled on mr-2000, but 2200 fps with a 200 grain bullet will be all you'll see from a full case of the stuff, as opposed to 2700 fps with other powders. I use my 10x handloads down to 20 below zero on caribou and have good luck. I also use unique powder in my handgun loads when running my dog team in this weather. When I find powders that work well in my below zero runs with the dog team, I stick with em. I'm sure you'll find something that works for you.

Steelhead,
Maine smart : Geeze they used to pull us kids out of school to pick potatoes in the 80's. Called it agricultural leave, up to 2 weeks. Not too smart, aye?

No, Maine's voting record and pot smoking is the envy of the free world.

South eastern BC.
Lots of good info, Mainer.
I have also messed around with the barrel channel to barrel fit, I replaced the factory blob of epoxy pressure point with a more exacting one and sealed the remainder of the channel with a thin coat of epoxy to waterproof it.
This is on the takedown model.Because or has a 2 piece stock I found a scout scope holds poi better with added advantage of that it can be bore sighted.
I use scout scopes on the other takedown BLR also and I am completely familiar with them now.
I am a big guy with long arms but the scout scope allowed me to shorten the length of pull about 3/4". I shortened the barrel to 19" and the rifle is no longer than my m94. It is very handy and my principle sheep rifle. I am very happy with it
