Picked up a TC compass thirty-ought-six took it out to the range today with a 165 grain Nosler ballistic tips at 2850 with h4350 can't complain at all!!!

Then that glamorous 378 bee!!! What a gem. An elephant gun that shoots like a varmint gun! This is a 4 shot group with 270 grain Barnes lrx in my 378 WEATHERBY. and look at the velocity to boot well over 6,000 foot-pounds of energy

Man that is some great shooting, I always preferred a 270g bullet when I had my 378. At 3185fps who needs heavy for caliber bullets?

Excellent! Even "Cheap" rifles can really shoot these days with good ammo. With an 06 like that, you wouldn't NEED anything else (y)

I'll tell you one thing the Savage, Ruger American Rifle and the TC compass are one of the Best Buys in the market under moa if you load them right

Fotis, first off wow great shooting - as always when you post!
Second, I have a range question, when you shoot like this group is it on sand bags/rests or a locked in rest like a lead sled?
Thanks!
