Picked up a new boom stick today, 2002 ? built Springfield NM model with a TRW chrome lined barrel. rifle had 10 rounds put through it by the first owner, the 2nd owner never fired it, but did some work on it, added a flash hider with a bayonet lug and shimmed the gas cylinder

the rifle came with 4 mags ( 3 Taiwan mags, one USGI ) and a multi tool in the original packaging




100 yards, bench rest, the target on the left is 42.0Gr of Varget and a 168 Gr sierra match king, 2 sets of 2 shots,

the target on the right is a 165 Grain sierra game king, 42.0Gr varget, 3 shot group

Try some Amax 168gr. My rifle opens up some like yours with the sierra's also. Amax does way better for me.

BTW she is beautiful...
