Finally ran the new MTU barrel at 200 and 400 yards.
All hand loads were well under 1 moa, with the cheap factory BTHP at 1 moa.
Below is best group  at 400, still working on the loads... looks promising.. ~90 rounds so far..

Looking good @bob_atl !  Glad your MTU bbl looks to be a shooter!

I recently got a new bbl in.  This one is a Proof Competition Contour.  Looks much better than the bad "MTU" contour job i got from a previous smith.  PCC is similar to the MTU but thicker at the muzzle end.  Also, a new contour, even thicker than the PCC is the new VCC contour.  These are from Benchmark bbls.  I also have one of these ordered to try out.

This one is chambered by Straight Jacket Armory.  So far so good.  I'll post some photos.  Also, these are 4-groove rifling.
