Just when things were going good a guy shows up to test a prototype (they make them here in Lake Havasu) AR in 30-06. It had a 16” barrel with a horrendous muzzle brake. He parked himself on a bench 4 down from me. Every time he shot it felt like a grenade going off next to me. I had to put plugs in my ears plus the muffs over my ears. I tried shooting between his shots but I still managed to flinch off a shot of two as the test progressed. If that happened I called the shot (all went to call) and marked it. Thankfully I had at least 10 shots for the remaining group tests or additional loaded to get a 10 shot group.
The 157.3 weight put 6 of the 10 shots “to group”. There was 1 call in this group. Group size is 1.555” without the call shot.
The next weight, 157.4 gr, grouped into 1.750” for 9 shots. There was one definite called shot (ok, I flinched it off……).
