Default Barrett 6.5 Swede load workup is done I think...

I've had this Barrett Fieldcraft in 6.5 Swede for a little over a year now. I mounted a Swarovski Z3 3.5-10X42 on it and have been working on load recipes off and on. I haven't been able to work on it as much as I wanted to or this would have been done a long time ago. I've got two loads to work with but I'm gonna stick with the 130 Scirocco/42.5 IMR 4350/Rem 9-1/2 for awhile. This is a four shot group after getting the barrel fouled. I had cleaned it down to bare metal and it took a little while to settle back in and these were the last 4 rounds I took with me. Velocity is 2660 FPS. This is the second time I've shot this load and got under .5 MOA.

I've been playing around with the 130 Accubond as well. It shot so well in my 7/08 that I thought I'd try it in the Swede. 47.5 RL-19/CCI 200 and I was pleasantly surprised. Velocity is right at 2770 fps.
