1. Distance - 150ft (measured with tape measure).
2. Wind - slight & occasional 1-2 mph gusts
3. Temp. - high 70's
4. Marker was not 'bolted' down but the place was marked on the table I used so that the same position was used for each shot.
5. Scope sighted to 150ft.
6. Chrono readings ranged from high 270's to low 280's.
All I can say is :eek:! WOW! And :bowdown to the makers (Lapco) of this barrel. I am VERY impressed with the performance. I am posting pics of my results so you can see for yourself.

Final results recap:
Rifled barrel - 8 inch total difference horizontally & 13 inches separating the shots vertically. As you can see, 6 shots were tightly grouped, the 3rd shot went 'rogue', 4th shot was off by 3 inches to the right & 4 inches high. Still would be a hit. Even the 'rogue' shot could have very likely been a hit.
Stock: 18 inches separating the shots vertically NOT including the 2 that missed the 4x4 ft target completely (1 shot went high & right while the other went way left). 24 inches separating the shots horizontally (also not including the 2 that missed). Only 1 shot came close to the center aim point as opposed to 6 with the rifled barrel.
Onward with the question/comments...
