Well, it's a darned good start. One MOA horizontal; one-half MOA vertical.

The horizontal dispersion being bigger than the vertical brings up the question: Was it a bit windy/breezy; or were you possibly canting the rifle a little bit?

At any rate, it would be pure burning heck on varmints! Good show!

Let's just say that I don't want you shooting at *me* with that thing!

Pretty fair... You're still getting some vertical - I'd increase the powder charge just a tad, or maybe try moving in/out on the seating depth. The horizontal is probably caused by wind.

You could probably get rid of that horizontal dispersion if you shot from a rest instead of offhand.

Nice Group.
