    The current ammo is shooting 1.5-2moa in the current production rifles. We are trying to improve both. Our tunnels are 16'w x 16'h, so I don't know if we are getting turbulance. The old method of testing was to put 5 warmers downrange, check that they are on target, then shoot a 10 shot group. The old setup has no scope, shot like artillery.

    Barrel/ action block

    Thank you for accepting me into this forum
    Quick question: is the action on a vblock to the stock and a secondary clamp to the barrel from the forend?
    I'm currently experimenting with that set up and only days from taking it for some range testing.
    I will start a thread in the appropriate chapter.
    Thank you
    Fernando

    Why not just build a blocked heavy gun like the 1000 yard guys? I have seen 10 shot groups from the upper two inches to 4 or 5 inches consistently at 1000 yards. Matt

    We use multiple barrels for testing, usally 5 sometimes 10. So the setup needs to be easily changed.

    If you are trying to achieve true return to battery capabilities, i.e., no sighting, I would think you would have to incorporate some type of buffering system to absorb the shock of the high capacity rounds you are shooting.

    True return to batteri is not as easy as it looks to be on paper.
