Glad to hear you guys are getting out and testing a little.

I have been having good success so far with 87 gr vmax well under moa out to 500 yds, and that's not from a bench but from shooting sticks, so I suspect a bench would yield nearly 1/2 moa.  This barrel does not copper foul at all; I do get some decent powder fouling from shooting suppressed but that's normal. 

Just today I decided to work with some 103 eldx and A4064. Just pinging steel at 200 yds in the 20 mph wind the rounds were piling up on each other so I'm looking forward to some real shooting in decent conditions with that combo and maybe getting a crony reading if I'm lucky.

I finally sprung for a new crony, I went with the caldwell with the led light kit. Even with the low sun angle it never missed a reading.

So my load of 28.2 gr 8208 with 87 gr vmax read 2910 fps, while the 103 eldx over A4064 clocked right at 2600 fps. Those were a little slower than I figured, but 500 yd drops with the 87's were very consistent with the same bullet from my 22" bhw. I got it out, and sure enough it's load of 28.6 gr 8208 and 87's clocked 2920 fps. So the two barrels are virtually indistinguishable. 

I think I will try other powders with the 103's, and see if I can bump it up to 2700.

Quickload still shows CFE producing the most velocity for the 103-108s
