Continuing my mission to standardize the zero on my rifles at 100 yards, I got my Remington model 700 chambered in 22-250 out for some range time. This is an early 90's rifle with a Leupold Vari-X III 6.5-20x scope. 

The previously developed load is a berger 55 grain moly bullet over 40 grains of H380 running 3625 fps.

It's a shooter!

    Boy I’d say! Nice, very nice all the way around! 
    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    I would consider that one well dialed in

    It’s not like it’s permanent, do it.

    JMHO....I'd try 1 click left and definately dump the moly.

    I won't buy any more moly coated bullets but I'm in no hurry to dump anything I already have. 

    Not like there is a performance issue...

    You can put them in a  case tumbler and clean it off……

    I know some folks think moly traps moisture in barrels and what not but my experience with moly has been nothing but positive. I clean less, shoot more, and have excellent accuracy results. 

    Again, I'm not drinking the Koolaid and won't buy any more moly coated bullets but will definitely shoot up what I have before converting. Which will also be fun because I'll get to work up a new load!

    Good looking rifle and shooting.

    Nice shooting!
    I need to spend some time with my 22-250.  The forum brother who I got it from was shooting bughole groups with it but I, unfortunately have not lived up to that expectation.

    I've heard moly is hard to remove from the bore.  It was a hot topic for a while but not so much now.  I remember, too how freezing your action is supposed to increase accuracy.  I doubt it.
    Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.
