Got up early this morning and went down in the bottoms to stretch the legs on my 25 and 6.5.. i set targets up at 500, 750 and a 1000 yards.. good conditions when i started shooting.. light wind from 1 oclock or so at 4 mph.. i shot the 25 first.. first round hits at all 3 distances and the gun shot really well..
 The pic in the link is a 3 shot group at a 1000.
 After i shot this group the wind started  gradually changing and by the time i shot the 6.5 it was from 3 oclock at 8 to 10 mph with let offs.. the 6.5 shot ok and i had good hits at all distances but the groups wasnt as good as the 25's

Pleased with how the 25 is doing..

Well said jerry.. also if your tumbling in stainless steel pins they will peen the case mouth in giving you a false measurement.. chamfer the inside of the mouth and remeasure or see if a bullet will fall down in the case..

Welcome erical..

If everything is right with the world a bullet should just drop down in a fired case.. so something isnt quiet right .. see if you can push the bullet down in a fired case.. should be able to easily.. you should have to full length resize your cases.. at the very least neck size them.. most have got away from that though..

I shot this gun about 30 more times today.. 60 rounds down the pipe now.. i have to say this rifle is impressing the heck out of me.. for a new barrel and new cases that has had hardly anything done to them (chamfer inside and outside of necks) and a guess at a chargeweight with 2 small seating depth adjustments its shooting great i think.. hopefully once all my cases has one firing on them the wheels dont fall off when I reload them again.. lol
Heres one last group at 300 yards.. i dropped one out the bottom but the other 4 are pretty good for me..

 On the Woox Exactus stock that I have, the butt stock uses a single bolt that screws into the center chassis, and I've checked it each time that I've shot the rifle. It stays very tight without any movement. It is inletted very tight to the chassis, same as the fore end..


Thanks for that information txhillbilly.. keep us up to date on that connection point as you use the rifle.. its a great looking chassis.. and like i said my concern about that may be unfounded.. which i hope it is..

I would also like to give a shout out to shilen barrels.. every shilen barrel i have got has been a great shooting barrel.. i had trouble with the prc barrels but looking back on it that was mostly all my doings and the cartridge itself..

My experience has been the opposite bob.. my 6 has shot smaller than my 6.5.. still to early to tell about the 25 but its shooting really well right now.. dont get me wrong.. my 6.5 has shot alot of 1/4 moa groups and targetswith the occasional group in the ones.. its just my 6 has shot several groups in the ones and occasionally in the zeros.. they both also shoot 1/2 moa groups sometimes as well.. lol.. i just really like what this 25 is doing right now.. may be a different story after i get a 100 rounds down it.. lol
