    Heres a couple of groups I shot at 100 yds with my FILs rem 700 tactical .223. Its a 9 twist heavy 20" barrel with a zeiss conquest on top.

    The load is RP brass, 69 gr SMKs, CCI450s and W748.

    I was rather impressed with this loads performance from the 20 inch barrel.

    Nice work. That's something to be proud of. Don't you just love it when a group comes together?

    Why is there more than one hole? Did you have the shakes that day?

    No it was me. The rifle is solid. I almost always pull a shot or 2, especially when shooting 10 shot strings. 90% of the time im machine solid, but sometimes I wiggle or pause in my breathing. Thats my biggest thing that causes me to pull shots. Ill get a sweet lull in the wind and Ill try to rush the string to get them all fired before the wind picks back up and I end up rushing my breathing to get the shot off during the natural respiratory pause. Its one of my only shooting vices. But "If the brass isnt flyin, youre dyin"

    I think BlackEagle means "You must have broke wind"!
