    Pete, If I would have been the shooter the problem would probably have been me! Your twist rate was on the quick side but certainly within specs. Maybe the barrel? The bullet was certainly in right weight range. A while back Berger made a 70gr bullet that had a 9 ogive. They recommended a 12Ē twist rate because of itís length. A fellow by the name of Skip ,you may have shot with him, used a bunch of them. They were a flat base and were considered a varmint bullet. Skip used them with 28.0 gr. N133. He said they shot best on the low side. If I remember right he did pretty good especially at 200 yds. His barrels were 13.5T.
