NorCal I'll try I should still have it somewhere.
Scratch that's a good idea, I was wondering it seemed a little small, but that's a pretty good idea.

I went out yesterday to see what my new barrel (received it Friday) would do and as I didn't feel like working up a load I just grabbed a couple boxes of he AE from my local Cabela's (Unfortunately for my wallet it's only 3 miles away) to use for sight in. I also had to shoot a "Qualification" for "Special Use Privileges" at our local club range. Started out with a couple fouling rounds, cleaned the soot out, fired a couple more sighters, and here are the first 5 "serious" shots through the new barrel.
Like I said, I was pretty pleased with the "factory load".
The new barrel is a 24" 6.5 Creedmoor, 1:8, 3-groove with a Benchmark Tactical Brake w/pinch bolt.
With this brake, coupled with the lighter recoil of the 6.5 CM, the target stays in the scope center throughout the entire shot. That compensator port keeps the barrel down with every shot
With the pinch bolt I can, if necessary, adjust the brake so the compensator takes any horizontal "bias" out as well.
Tuesday I'll get a chance to do some load workup and we'll see what my March target ends up looking like.
Let's see some more target the month end is near.
