Finally zeroed in on the best recipe reload for my 30 06. 
 
These shots were taken at 100yds.

And underneath the quarter is surprise FIVE holes.  Not the standard three.

These shots were taken in secession with no rest time.  Just load, aim, shoot.  I am seriously impressed with the improvement the Bell and Carlson Medalist stock has made to my Tikka 30 06.  Five shots with no cooling time guaranteed at least one flier prior to installing this stock.  The B&C Medalist aluminum bedding block really works!

Wow Leo that is really good.  That is close to target quality from a hunting rifle you have every right to be pleased with that and for 5 shots without cool down times it is remarkable.

Thanks! I know you know I have reason to be impressed. I would have tried to stack a sixth in there but I only had five of that load.

Nice work! In the world of hunting rifles, I've not put much stock in stocks. Barrels, actions/triggers, ammunition, optics... sure. Hmm... Interesting.

Know what you mean Leo.  A couple of years ago I only loaded 3 rounds of a bullet I wanted to try in my 7 mag.  I shot about 5  of my regular rounds and then shot those three.  My son Eric was spotting for me and after the first round he would not say where the bullet hit just said shoot another which I did.  After the three shots he did not say how the group was, just said come on.  We went to the target 100 yds away and there in the bullseye were three shots all touching each other.  This was a custom built rifle but a hunting rifle nontheless.  Yep you have a winner.

It used to be changing a stock was just a fit or cosmetic preference. Some (emphasis on SOME) of these new stocks do indeed offer a performance improvement.

In my case, the Bell & Carlson Medalist not only improved the accuracy but it also significantly reduced felt recoil. In fact it reduced the recoil better than the aftermarket limbsaver pad I had on the rifle's original stock.

That is excellent shooting.  I would bet that even 200 yards would not see a massive spread to the group.  You have a great rifle and good ammo.  I would keep it as is.  Very nice...

That's not bad at all for a production rifle, Leo. Definately minute of whatever you are pointing it at.
