    So far Sierra 69gn Matchkings will do less than 1" on regular basis. I had one group that was 10 rounds at 3/4". H335 powder, Rem primers.

    Some people shoot more than others. When I have a rifle I like I'll run through 50 rounds a week. So, yeah, I consider the 'barrel burning' potential of a cartridge before buying one.

    Read up the posts by idahoron and his stickies on paper patching. A few others as well have had good luck. The key is the barrel, specifically the rate of twist. Yes, with the right barrel you can get MOA performance at several hundred meters...

    Took the Savage out to the range today. Not really boresighted. Not even on the paper. After twenty rounds the scope worked loose. Tightened everything back up. Got it on paper. Was shooting about 1.5" groups at 100yds with Federal bulk ammo....

    I stumbled on a new one today. Walmart. Saw a camo Axis with a heavy barrel for $399. Turns out it is a new offering this year in .223 and .22-250 (and maybe others). On the shelf the Walmart tag said Axis XP so I had to look at it up close. ...
