Re: Pink Panther's first kill! Reply #15 – May 21, 2019, 10:59:36 AM I've not performed any ladder tests yet as it was only shot at 300yds until Friday pm before the match and I was doing a last minute seating depth test at the comp range (seated them all long and brought my gauges/arbor press). This was a really last minute deal and was really hesitant to shoot the new gun in championship match...I got really lucky. The reason for the above was due to the flexibility and the barrel striking the cross brace on the fore arm rails. Before it was modified it only took a few lbs of pressure a few inches back of the muzzle to deflect the barrel enough to hit the crossbrace and the stock. Unfortunately I did not realize that until a few days before this match. LOL about the 'pool noodle'! Not an inaccurate description. It also severely rotated in the front rest upon recoil according to the two other fellows on my squad. They were quite dismayed but the friggin thing hammered over the entire match...shooting at a moderate pace or shooting 2 sighters and my 20 record shots in about 6 minutes in the last match. It did track well in that as soon as I slid it forward against the stop I had less than 2-3" adjustment of POA to set up the next shot....nearly half the time the cross-hairs were exactly where the last shot broke; I would say it tracks well. The 8.5 twist barrel and the 184's would induce a bit of torque that would account for twisting moment but it is a right twist barrel and they said only the left rail was lifting on recoil which is contrary to my expectations. I may need to tighten the left side bag a little to give more friction to help with the lift but at this point I hate to change too much; hard to argue with it's performance.
