I bought a 700 several years ago. Not a patch on the old ones!

The trigger was aweful.

It took me six hours to stone the trigger!

It shot lousy until I noticed the bolt handle was touching the stock when in battery!

I got it sorted in the end but said never again unless an 80's bdl!

Bloody good group Ian! Did you get any chrono reads? Bet with Vhit 130 you'll smash 3,700fps

Not yet Elliot plan to when I get chance, I was half tempted to get a labradar not sure if wind will affect them though...

 

I did work the load upto 25.4 and the groups were still good, but I started getting slight cratering on the primers...

 

I'll update velocity when I get chance...

Good job done there , I use the 55grn in a 22.250 with very good results , you can be confident out to as far as you like with good load development .

I orginally got one from riflecraft I think, but it took forever to come, months, so I ordered another from Dave at Valkyrie rifles, came quicker and was cheaper..

Just bought a t3x , why change the trigger Ian ?

 

David makes a big difference to accuracy , when a trigger is too heavy you can pull a shot very easily... Lighter trigger, your not pulling off target.

 

For the sake of £10 no brainer and makes the trigger around 1lb in pull weight, got one in my Tikka .243 and .223 ..
