Re: how far would you trust this rifle
I bought the gun new in `99,right after the RUM was released and all you could get was 180 Patition factory ammo for brass,I got 100 of those and started shooting the 165 SGKBTHP,shot 300 of those to make 400,then 200 180 NBT`s for 600 then 600 150 NP`s for 1200,, then started playin with various heavier bullets and have shot 400 of the 200 SMK`s after setteling on it for 1600 plus the playin which was somewhere around 150 of different kinds of bullets for a grand total of 1750 +/- in 8 years of shooting.
I know it is about done,but it has never been shot dirty or too fast,but I cant reach the bbl with a 180 bullet and it still be in the case.
but with the 200 I did kill 2 whitetails this last fall at 463 and 513 yards with it,and thats about all I am comfortable with at this point in time.in the next couple of years I would like to get it set up and bbled in something I can learn to shoot a bit farther.
the jokes on you,your the friend of a fool
