    Today I took a couple of rifles over to the bottom for some chronograph tests. Took the 223 checked a load. Very happy with it. Shot 5 into .9" at 100 yards,velocity was 3079. Nice I thought. Took my wifes Ruger M77 Hawkeye to task. Shot my rounds across the Chrony. 100 grain loads out of a 257 Rob ran about like I expected,2980 fps. Group wasnt anything to brag about. Shot some 120 grain Speers,velocity wasnt bad,2800 fps. This rifle shot a nice 4 shot with one flyer. Shot 3 more a few mins later that might have landed in 3". Makes me sick.Then i proceded to ring the steel at 300 yards and the bullet splatter showed it shot into about 2
    inches. Looks like a project. Thinking free float the barrell first and proceed from there as needed until I get the desired results.
