Mad - Thanks, there is a lot that goes into making or breaking a load and a rifle....now here is the problem, trying to get it to stay there....LOL....just look at the Mossberg Patriot in the 6.5 PRC, just look at the last two targets....on 6-11 at 100 yards it shot though the same hole almost and then on 6-25, it shot terrible (in my opinion) See the attached targets for proof Target RR02 is from 6-11-2020 and Target RR03 is from 6-25-2020...both shot at 100 yards.....

As I said the trick is to keep them in the bulls eye !!!

Went ahead and loaded up 24 more round, that is all the Sierra 2130 the flat base bullets that I have for the Mossberg 308...the good thing is that I have 23 other 308's ammo to choose from.....and the 25th one is on its way....a Christensen Arm BA Tactical VTAC, a 16" carbon fiber barrel.....

Still have not given up on the 125 gn Nosler BT....have about 250 raw bullets just waiting...because of the thin barrel of the 308 that is why I am going with a light weight bullets....

Did you clean the barrel after the 6/11 outing?  May be just breaking in yet?
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
