Took the Crusader outside for a quick pic. I asked for a 26 inch barrel threaded instead of the original 23. I read GA's break in recommendations, shoot one, clean one, till no copper is present, then shoot 5, clean, 4 times.

After the shoot one , clean one with Bore Eliminator, first 4 rounds had blue color present, the 6th round came out clean with no copper, I shot a 3 round group, cleaned, then 5 round group, clean and after each 5 round groups, no copper was present either and the final 5 round group banged a tiny inch group at 300 yards in sunny 100 degree heat ( 43.4 grains Varget and 168 SMK, new Lapua brass, Fed 210 ), except the first fouler shot. Total of 29 rounds were fired. Overall I am happy after finding a nice load right after break in. Going to experiment with some 175 SMK, 175 / 185 Bergers. I may want to use the Crusader on a deer for the first time after using the fast 7's for a long time. Setting my sights on 165 grain Ballistic Tips and the ELD-X.
