Derrick and his staff do an amazing job building rifles. I was actually at his shop when you were picking up your rifle and I was getting mine that day. Nice shooting.

Very nice rifle and good shooting. I love it when you get a Rifle that even after you clean it shoots the same place and groups tight at 100 yards. My 22 Creedmoor is like that as is the 28 Nosler. There is usually a change in velocity on that first round so not sure I would want to have to make a first round hit long range on a small target.

Agreed, it is really nice when they work like that. My Tikka Varmint 223 is that exact same way - there really isn't any need for foulers if you're shooting at 100.

Horizon as far as I know uses Benchmark barrels unless specifically asked for something else.

Just shot my tightest 100yard group to date with my Horizon Hunter HZ .308 with a Silenserco Harvester suppressor, literally a one hole group
