    Al,

    In the post I viewed, the caliber was not listed, but load data was. Note the original post was edited to add the cartridge AFTER I asked.


    Worker,

    Nice group!

    Any factory rifle that will group like that with factory ammo is a treasure. Even in today's market.

    10yrs ago I'd have called bs.....(I still will on a Browning LOL) but factory rifles have advanced light years recently. I've got factory Weatherby's (historically king of the freebore) that are so short-throated that mag-length rds touch the lands. Who'da thunk it....

    This is true. I was distracted by downloading a picture of the 2nd group.

    I have a MK V in 257 weatherby ,but with a Bartlein bbl Rem Varmint contour and WBY Freebore.It's a 3/4 MOA rifle,I don't shoot it a lot,worried about burning up the bbl to soon...... Back to my Bergara , I bought it on sale for $1799.00 ,watching their videos and and story behind their bbl making,plus explaining their Sub MOA guarantee ,I wasn't surprised it was a good shooter. What amazed me is how effortless it was,right out the gate ,1st group( 1st 5 shots out of rifle) was covered by a dime. They're literature says every rifle is test fired,and the bbl was dirty NIB.
