Shot #1 was from a cold barrel. I should have used it as a fouling shot as the next 4 shots using the 44gr of Varget went into the same hole. Not bad at all from a 3.5x optic. That will be my new load. The 43gr of 4064 did very good as well. To be honest, a higher power optic and getting around to changing out the factory trigger with my Larue MBT will have all those groups at MOA.
I am insanely impressed with the 44gr Varget load.
**I wrote IMR 4062 on the paper, but used 4064**
All groups were 5 shots at 100 meters.

That 44gr Varget load looks like the one! I don't know if you could find a better group. It must be nice, to find your rifle's favorite, on your first outing
Maybe report back with groups from that load at 200, 300, 400 and beyond. I would be interested in seeing if it holds them same MOA at longer distances or changes drastically.
