Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Time to move up
To old to fight and to old to run, a Jar head will just shoot and be done with you.

Shooting the 220 rn as the most accurate load is a myth . The Army picked that bullet for down range performance . I have won military rifle matches with a 130 spire point bullet in both of my 98 rifles and my 96 . All 100 yard 5-shot groups from the bench were under 1 inch . A friend also shot around an inch with that bullet in his 98 . Another club shooter shot back to back sub 1.4 groups with his 98 with the 155 Palma . None of us have ever shot that well with any of the 220 rn bullets , with many different loads .

With a damaged bore, the longer bearing surface on a long round nose might be more consistent, and will "slug-up" to fill the grooves better.
Arguing with someone who denounces reason is like administering medicine to a corpse.
