SSG 300RUM First trip to the range PICS

I finally got to take the new rifle from Nate Dagley to the range.
I was just goig to be shooting and cleaning the barrel for the break in process so I just brought some factory ammo along rather than waste my Berger VLD handloads.

I shot number 1 just from my rough boresight at 100 yards.....dialed the vertical and horizontal in on shots 2 and 3....I was cleaning between each shot and then fired shots 4,5,6 and 7. Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised. I was just using the bipod...no bags....no rests. My brothers were using them for their deer rigs on the next bench. I let them combine ot fire some more shots with my new toy on the next target with the same results...5 shots of Rem. factory loads in one ragged hole!

I will be firing more in the coming weeks and working the handloads up to longer range...i'll keep the results coming online here!

Thanks Nate!

Starting out, that shooting looks pretty good to me. Tell us about your rifle components. Nice looking rig.

Very impressive looking gun and group. You should post specs on the RUM, it's a beauty.
