After a bit of scope mount being loose drama. On a whim I dumped some H4895. I got about 5 pounds of it, and it is temp stabil, so I said why not. At 34.6 I was getting a bit of vertical, but it could have been me. The one group was touching the lands just enough, that when you tried to extract a loaded round, you felt a little redistance when you pulled the bolt back. I screwed the forester seating stem in 1/4 turn, and they have pretty fine threads. Loaded the 34.9 load, put two in one hole, and one .5 right. Could have been me. I would like to see a bit lower ES. I will fiddle with this some more when I get more bullets. Ignore all the other holes, I was too lazy to put up,a new target,many was shooting at previous bullet holes for an aiming point.
