    Hi banus yes it does but not accurately and on a windy day struggles to make it on the paper at 1000yds. The problem being adding more powder really shows signs of pressure on the case. At 200m it's sub moa. The guys I shoot with all have longer heavier barrels and it shows in the consistency of their results.

    Hiya Stephen thanks for your response. What is eldm and what grains for your powder? as I under stand it better to have slower burning powders in longer tubes.
  4. Hi all, replacing standard 20" barrel on a Tikka T3 Varmint with a 30" pacnor heavy match barrel. 1:8 twist so will shoot 140 gr scenars through it. Having it done to shoot 1000yds + but no ideas about loads- any good recipes out there? Thanks for your thoughts! Matt
  5. Hi Jay, I don't suppose your T3 stock is still for sale? Cheers Matt
