Hicks #1 Accurizer
I had a #1 come into the shop in .220 Swift, it wouldn’t group with lead free ammo due to the twist rate and length of lead free bullets, I worked up a load using 45 grain Barnes TSX bullets grouped horizontally great but it strung vertically up to 2” ES in the low teens 13 average. I installed the tension block and went for a day of shooting, I moved the tension screw in 1/4 turn increments and found a sweet spot (I shot groups for one full turn past the sweet spot before backing it down and regrouping). Rifle is shooting .64 inch 5 shot groups at 100 yards. I’m impressed with how well a simple little device worked.
