Way cool, glad to here it is a shooter. It should be, but with a used barrel, who knows. I did my part, but again you never know.
Congrat's on a cool looking and shooting rifle.

Well it took me long enough to get this beauty to the range. You guys might remember the English 30-378 Bighorn built for me. Quite the story actually... Laughing So I buy this USED HS Percision 32" barrel and a nice looking English walnut stock off e-bay for $200 bucks. I call Ed all excited and I can almost read his mind...." you bought a used what in what caliber??" silent I send it to him and we find an action, he Flutes it, does hi magic, sends it back all in one piece. I screw around for months getting the scope, rings and bases. Embarassed I had a silver Lupy here 4.5x14x50 30mm tube and a mil dot ret. and on it went.

So last night I open a new box of new Wby brass, trim them, dump in my pet load of 98gr of H-1000 powder set in some Berger 210 VLD's and box them up. This is the same load as my accumark likes, so I was hoping they might just shoot the same load.

Today off to the range I go. The gun dials right in, in 2 or 3 shots and shoots very small holes. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy cheers

Plus this was new brass that has never ben in this rifle.

Here is a pic of the rifle and 4 groups. If you overlay these groups there are 12 holes in just over 1/2 MOA. Group sizes are, .530", .332", .532", and .505". Now darn it guys, this thing would not toss a stray!! And I guaranty it shoots better than me shooting a 378 based boomer with no break!! Ed this is a testiment to your fine gun knowledge and the care you take to do it right.

Thank You again for another BigHorn Rifle that shoots under 1/2 MOA very consistantly!!

Jeff.
