Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs some work... Problem I'm running into is industry is making 1-7 standard for barrels and at 90gr we are at the edge of stability. Please look at doing 77gr SMK which will keep same COL and similar ftlbs and much betterstability in the more common 1-7. The 90gr in 1-7 will hold a group at 100, 200... but once you start pushing further the groups open up. Unfortunately its holding 2.5 to 3 moa group at 500+ which is unacceptable. I am a 07FFL and have been competitively shooting for 26years, I have tried extensively to find fault in my operation or that of the firearm or glass. I look forward to your feedback.
