It blew me away, and my shooting buddy was looking through the spotting scope while I was shooting and kept asking which target I was shooting, because with an old crappy Simmons spotting scope it looked like I hit the bullseye once, then missed the rest...But I could see in my scope where I was shooting, and it was drilling them in 1 ragged hole. It really loves them.
Now, don't get me wrong, I keep 100rd boxes full of handloads in the 168 & 175 gr bullets because they are my normal shooters that I take to the range because I can buy those bullets cheap, but I also keep a 100 box of 210 VLD's loaded up, just incase I'm feeling froggy...
Now if I can just find a range that goes to 1K, I'll be happy.
