Nightforce or EGW rail bedded to your reciever and Burris Z signature series rings.  Theses rings will not leave marks on your scope.

For the sake of conversation.
Factory 150g Partition 3540fps
210g Berger 2950fps
The 210 Berger catches the 150g Partition in velocity at 524 yards, and destroys the Partition in energy from 50 yards and beyond.

Make sure you clean the barrel and when you think your done clean it again.  The Barnes bullets WILL copper foul youíre barrel like crazy, especially after you have shot a different bullet previously.  One of the reasons I will not use them.  Unless your hunting elk any non varrmint bullet will kill thin skinned game.  Pick the one that gives you the best accuracy.  On your guns accuracy,  a shot out barrel doesnít happen over night.  It gets progressively worse, so I doubt thatís your problem.  Clean the barrel with some good copper solvent, itís cheap and easy to do,..... and I bet it fixes your problem.  If it doesnít, take your Vortex back and get another one.  I personally wonít buy anymore Vortex products  no matter how cheap they are or how good their warranty is.

My 6.5-300 shoots in the .3s and my .257 and .300 shoot in the .5ís.  I reload for them all.

Is everybody breaking in their 6.5-300 with the Barnes 127 factory load? I did that with the early Accumark I sold. I did do the recommended brake in ( for once) and was getting sub moa groups. Even Barnes says don't use their bullets for break in, but they were all that was available! Sorry if it is FUBAR, PARA45!

Mine absolutely hated the factory lrxís.
