a guy called ben davies did in our club, and it shot extremely well.
the big surprise was haw much more barrel life that rifle had than we all got with 2209.
he sold it to another guy and it just kept shooting well for ages.
keep safe,

I got the best results with 2213, including a 500 meter Fly national record that stood until a few years ago.

The Yanks are using H1000 (2217) to push the new Sierra 150's in their 6.5 x 284's. Barrel life is reported to be better.
