Few rounds to get it on target and shot two 5 shot groups that both went just under an inch. That was with a very hot barrel ( probably 20 shots total without letting it cool other then walking down to check a target. Heat waves were really comming off of it and it was only 43 degrees outside. Either i got real lucky of that gun will be an abosolute tack driver with some load developement next year. Tod my buddy i might just say the heck with it and just use that load but then id have 3 06s that shot the same load. Id like to see something in the 165 grain class shoot in it just for something differnt
    Try the 165 Sierra GameKings. Both my .308's are sub MOA with them.

    You must be thrilled with your first outing with the new 06!!!

    ya ill give 165 gamekings and nos bts a run for sure next summer. Ive got a few hundred bts but my sierra stash is down to 150s and try and find bullets on line today. There as rare as powder and primers. Especially .223 and 308
