    Could any one tell me what bullet this weapon was designed for? I have tried a few different rounds but I have found no consistency. There are many rounds out there. I would like to see if any one else has had the same problem and if any one gas found the round this weapon likes the best.

    What round is the rifle chambered for? 308 Win or .223 Rem?

    Also, posting in these areas may get you a better response. ;)

    I'll take it you have a 308 caliber rifle.It has a 1-10 twist,so you can shoot just about any 308 caliber bullet through it.
    I handload 15 different types of bullets for my .308 caliber rifles from 150gr to 210gr.It will shoot all of them good,and some great.

    If it is a 223,it will have a 1-9 twist and will shoot bullets up to 75gr.

    Is the gun Copper Fouling? If the patches are blue in color after you run them through the bore-That's copper in the bore.
    If it is copper fouling,you will get inconsistent groups.

    If the gun is new,it might take some time to break it in. I have a 25/06 that gave me alot of problems with copper fouling,and I ended up shooting a set of Tubb's Final Finish bullets through it,and that has helped the problem.

    I have the same gun that you have without the muzzlebrake,and it shoots great,but the barrel needs to be broke in properly.
