Tell you what, if you come up with the answer to this riddle the drinks are on me
I have so often seen two or three guns of the same style, caliber and manufacturer that will
shoot one bullet well but horrible with another
All things being equal, which they never are, I have yet to see anyone render a really spot on explanation
Rifle barrels are a lot like women, they don't all go for the good looking, witty and charming blokes like me, some actually prefer something different
I know, hard to understand isn't it
Oh there are so many variables with rifles and loads I don't know that I'll ever truly know what's going on here. This stuff just fascinates me. Besides that my 14 year old is starting to take to this. He's my oldest and this transition from my "little buddy" to teenager has had it's challenges. Time on the bench and at the range is mentor/buddy time involving little discipline time and thus it's always fun.
I had to go buy some 150's in the TTSX yesterday. I'm going to work up some loads with them for my son's .308 and some for both of the .300 Winnies. If they shoot well in my Tikka, will it be explained by the twist rate? Perhaps, but I really won't know with certainty.
