Well, today was pretty interesting to say the least!
My psper patched 358's performed pretty danged well at 50 yards , but I need to put more powder in them I think .
Group was about 5 inches. So the system has potential .:>)

Cat,

Were they printing high or low, and did you let the barrels cool for 20-30 minutes between shots?

I have a trick for cooling them that costs a bit, but it speeds up sighting in. I take the warmed barrels off and the forend off, then I spray them with starting fluid outside.

Warm/hot combo gun barrels tell you only to what extent they wander when warm, and it can be a lot.

I'm real interested in your patched bullet results and welcome more results. cool

Oh, this barrel is pretty thin so it heats up pretty quick but cools down really fast as well!
I did some testing with the warmer and colder shots with the heavier bullets and the difference on group size is about 2" at 50 yards, but shooting offhand I really didn't notice a point of impact shift because I was still having g some neck tension issues. That is straightened out now.
My paper patched bullet shooting today had a best group of 3 1/2 inches .
Loaded some more and going out tomorrow again :>)
