    Expert opinion wanted on New barrel freebore (pic)

    A Clean Miss on a Trophy Animal

    Maybe I missed it but I run a similar load and would need more than 2.5 mils at 500 yards with my rifle using a 100 yd zero. Maybe the range was right but you under dialed?

    PIG saddle and Ball-head ?

    I have an Manfrotto 190XPROB tripod with an 496RC2 ball-head. I would like to get the right ball head so that I can run a PIG saddle. I do not need a "top of the line" set-up, just something that is solid and dependable. Any recommendations?
