39.0 grains RS62, Tubb 115 grain DTAC's (factory HBN'd), COL 68.5mm, KVB-223M primer, CG-RPA 2000 action, Bergara 26" 8 twist straight taper barrel, chambered & fitted by David at Crispin engineering.

A slow powder and a modest speed for a 6x47, but a good result, and one that shouldn't toast the barrel...........

(Target was Century electronic, F-class scoring at 600yds.)

The Bergara barrel was a pleasant surprise, a beautifully finished bore, and the blank cost me just £219, posted.

Wow, that is impressive do you mind if I ask where you acquired the blank.

Don't depend on the price, though.......it was a year ago. However, I'd say that the quality is very good. I seem to remember reading somewhere that Krieger set up the Spanish plant.
