I finally got my 264 and managed to get out for a bit on Saturday to break it in and shoot some of the RL33 loads. The rifle is a Model 70 26" Sporter. Very thin barrel, I'm figuring about a #2 size. Heats up fairly quickly.
Loads started at 69 grains up to 74. First decent group came at 70 grains with a 3-shot group of .75". Chrono'd a couple of rounds and was rather disappointed at the 2875 fps. 71 grains opened up to a 1.5 inch group with each shot running about .5 inch from the previous shot at the 1 o'clock location. Had to stop there as had things on the schedule. I hope to get out and shoot the rest of the loads sometime this week but, not holding my breath looking at my schedule.

Rifles are similar to boats and young women...there's no end to how much money you can pour into them without making them any more useful.
