Loaded my 3 favorite bullets over 42.5 H-4350. A Fireman friend said this was a good spot. I did get to the magic 2700 wit no problems. Now the ELD looks better???

Are you cleaning ur barrel between range trips? I noticed the fouler shot. Seems like anytime clean a barrel out it takes me a few shots to get it back to where I left off.

Yes, I do clean after every shoot. I was cleaning after every 3 shots but I'm gonna call it "broke in" now. Its just me but I'm a firm believer in cleaning after every session but I'm anal. This gun seems to shoot cold bore pretty consistently.

Usually, Wipe Out Accelerator then the foam, let it work a couple hours, then patch it out. Finish with Montana Extreme bore conditioner.

Probably would have been done with a dirty barrel
