    see... thats what im talkin bout. Nice steve!

    Best i could get with the mini mauser was around 2 inches at 100 yds. I believe it was because of the short fat profile of the 123 gr bullets and the excessively fast twist of the .310 bore, it was a 9 twist or a 9.5 twist i believe. If I went with a heavier bullet i lost too much velocity. Perfect would be a .308 bore, X39 chamber, 12 or 14 twist, hand lapped and an 11* crown. Semi or bolt, either would be SUB MOA with good handloads and bullets in the 110-125 gr range.
