I did not have time last night to load my target load for my 358Win which is 46.5grs of AA2495BR in front of a 225gr Sierra SBT that has a velocity of 2330fps. So, I took my hunting load which is 49.0grs of AA2495BR in front of a Sierra SBT that has a velocity of 2471fps. I went this morning before work and the pressure I put on myself was knowing that I was going to shoot a five shot group and how ever it turned out would be what I posted.

I barely got the group in between thunder storms but did get it done. I do think that if I had a better trigger, more power than 5x, and a better rest to shoot from I might have done a little better, but it is what it is, a pure hunting rifle that is just out of the box without any work done to it.










group size is .8365"



It is an unaltered rifle. Never did a thing to it, just took it out of the box and started shooting it. I was a little disappointed this morning, because the other day I fired three fowling shots then a five shot group and experienced the following with this rifle.



I will do it again soon with my target load.

Thanks guys, it is an accurate hunting rifle for sure and is it ever a killer on game. Beladran, I clean it at the end of the hunting season and then if I have a long range session with it. Like the one with the three fowling shots was the first time I shot it after this last hunting season. I shot the three fowling rounds and then went two clicks down and fired the five shot group. This morning I had not cleaned it from the last time at the range but that is not why my group was not closed up. It was me this morning not the loads or rifle.
