Looks lik a shotgun pattern you better just give up on that Kimber and give it to me for safe keeping don't want you to get all worked up over it not shooting and have a heart attack or some other catastrophe.
Yeah your right it feeds good (doesn't gouge case) it shoots good (doesn't shotgun pattern) I will deliver it to your place of residents.
Didn't take pictures but today in my .325 WSM (M70 Winchester Ext Wth) I shot a load of IMR 4007SSC 63gr, CCI 250, Barnes TSX 200gr, COAL 2.839" which is well within published Barnes manual data. BEst group I could get was 1.5" out of several four shot groups. I have tried numerous loads, various powders, neck sizer die, precision mic to measure all dimensions, cannot get consistent groups. I have other M70 Win rifles which I reload for and they are sub MOA or MOA. So, maybe I just have to live with this 1.5"group?
I have the same rifle and could never really get TSXs to shoot real good. This is one of my better loads, I did notice groups got better as I seated the bullet further from the lands. Now mine loves 200 grain Accubonds and puts them in one ragged hole, and they performed very well on game.

Thats helpful info. I responded to you on another thread also. I tried Accubonds for a long while but they did not shoot very well. I thik my .325 WSM is just not an MOA rifle.
I could not get the TSX's to shoot good either. I gave up before I started in changing the seating depth though. Might be worth a go.
I do like the Sierra 220g bullets. I picked a bunch of the partitions for the next run. Can't go wrong with a 200g Partition.
200gr Accubond, 65.5gr H-4350 will shoot ragged holes(Kimber Montana) at 100yd all day long.
OAL-2.91" (ish) I have found the bullet length to vary
action screw torque is 65 in/lb - I doubt you'll gain anything in re-bedding since they are glass and pillar bedded when they're build but you might try full length 0-pressure bedding the barrel - that stabilized some loads for mine and didn't wreck the good load performance
