Here is a three shot group at a 100 yards Horizon did in there testing. Nosler Factory ammo 175 gr ABLR. It's a good start.

Looking at the above pic, do you think they killed the chicken with the "fowler" round?

Great looking rig!!!

That’s a sweet build. Derrick built my 260 about 3 years ago and it has been a laser. It’s my go to rifle. I’m looking to have him or APF build me another. You made a good choice on gunsmith and your build.

Nice rifle! I'm assuming that group was shot with some factory ammo? Which ammo was it?

Did they charge it as a rebarrel or a new build?

It was charged as a rebarrel. Basically I just sent him all my parts. I paid the difference for a Proof barrel instead of the Benchmark barrel that's included in his price.
