I hate to be boastful but I have never owned a rifle that shot this well. I only tested six load combinations. Nothing shot over .476 in a 3 shot group at 100yds and the load the rifle is liking the best shot a five shot .471 with my clean bore fowling shot dropping slightly out. If not for the fowler the 4 shots were in .183 I imediatly shot a second group of three into .o55.

Rifle is built on a trued Rem 700 action
27.5" Bartlein 1-8.7 twist chambered in 280 ack
Manners Stock
PTG fluted bolt, spring and firing pin

I bought the rifle from a local smith named Tooter Merideth. This was a gun he built for himself, broke it in and directed his attention in another direction. A 338 Lapua if I am not mistaken. If interested I can give his contact info if you pm me.

I'm sort of impressed. I'll be VERY impressed with five shots in .055.
Shazam for you. Won't be any "luck" this hunting season at all. No sir.

Good looking gun and even better group. That one may have to be hung up on the wall next to the reloading bench. Can't wait for my 280 AI to be finished.
