    You’re just going to lay out a shiny toy and not tell us all about it? Criminal...

    Got a blast of heat this past weekend, just in time for fourteen screaming five and six year olds to come over for the kid’s birthday. Haven’t had a single mosquito bite in the backyard since...

    I call this one, "The European". Sako A7 Roughtech Range in 6.5CM, 1:8" 25" medium heavy barrel, ATRS brake, Zeiss V4 6-24x50, Magpul bipod. Pretty decent for a factory offering.

    sorry for my lapse

    About the only thing wrong is they don't make a southpaw version.
    And yet, after nearly 10 years of government by Stephen Harper and his anti-choice army, you can still get an abortion in Canada. At this point, the political right’s agenda is so well hidden Sherlock Holmes couldn’t find it with a Huawei P30 powered by a trillion Watsons.

    Step 1. Yep...still warm. Out tonight before the hockey game for some prelims with the re-barrelled Coyote. (I had the range to myself.)



    Barrel break-in procedure. Boring, but necessary.



    Not bad for consistency with the speeds. Quite a low charge that is reflected in the speeds...



    And the last 5 shots to zero the scope. First sighter was low. The next sighter...low right. Then the final adjustments on the scope, and the last 3 shots grouped pretty well. Looks to be sub 1/2moa for those last 3 shots. (Actually, it measures .375moa for that 3 shot group.)



    The distance for this test was 186 metres (or 203 yards). The temperature was a warm 28c (83f). The wind was negligible. The elevation of this range is 792m (2599 feet) ASL. The relative humidity was 45%.

    I am pretty impressed with the new barrel, even though I only shot 15 rounds. The rig is quite a bit heavier and longer than with original 24" Kreiger barrel. That and the Heathen brake, made for some really mild felt recoil. Mind you, that charge weight was only for this preliminary break-in test. I'll bring the speed up with the OCW tests to follow as I search for a fast node.

    Brass: Lapua
    Primer: CCI BR2
    Bullet: Berger 185gr Juggernaught
    Powder: IMR-4064 test weight 39.0gr (.010" jump)

    Step 2. OCW test...so I'm looking for the fast node. Here's what I have in mind to try first.

    40.5gr, 41.0gr, 41.5gr, 42.0gr, and 42.5gr of IMR4064

    Since the freebore was extended .170", there is plenty of volume still left in the case. But it makes for one long cartridge. The silly proprietary PGW magazine is pretty useless. So single feeding the rounds is the order of the day with this set-up.
