Its the combination of the Berger Bullet, Polygon Rifle Form and the Reamer. In any application the Berger has to be seated out extremely far to get close to the lands. Barnes LRX seem to jump the gap without any issues.
Yeah, I just bought one a few weeks ago, put PSG1 in the search tool and it will come up.
Discogodfather - those groups look great. Did you ever try any 185gr bullets or other handloads in it? Also, is that a PSG trigger or something else (like a William's)? I may have to get one of these barrels.
I am going to try the Barnes LRX and some stepped out Bergers next. And I got some 190 grain Nosler custom comps. The free bore is very long!
RCM - are there any issues with having the polygonal or traditional rifled barrel cut to 24" and threaded? Do you know if anyone has done this and has seen bad performance?
You could do that but just recrown it.
