Just found this site. Very nice with good information. I live in the Hillcountry of Texas. I have been shooting Black Powder Cartridge Silhouette with a Shiloh Sharps in .45-70 for about ten years. I've shot out to 1100 yards with it.
In a couple of weeks I'll be receiving a TC ICON Precision Hunter in .243. I haven't had a .243 since my Dad bought me a Win. M88 in 1959. Like a dummy I got rid of it. Have any of you forum members had any experience with the Precision Hunter? I haven't decided what scope I want to put on it.
Thanks for any information.
I got my Precision Hunter in .308, the certificate stated it holds .8 MOA using 150 grain Federal Power Shock, any way didn’t try those don’t have good feeling about 150 grain soft point bullets used in it. I did try handloads using 168 grain SMK with which this riffle is holding sub .5 MOA all day long with best at .3 MOA probably with superior scope I can do better I still have my old Nikon 9x with BDC, not a target scope, but your .243 should probably do the same or even better.
Sounds like you got a good shooter. Did rings come with the rifle? If not, what kind do you use? I'm hoping to pick mine up next week. I'm putting a Leupold 6-18X on it.
I'm in the second week of recovery from a knee replacement. I want to get out and shoot it as soon as I can.
Rings, no rings just a riffle child lock trigger adjustment tool and manual, o yeah the thing to take bolt apart, I just took scope from the riffle I trade for this one, it had Nikon 3-9 x 40 never meant to be long range or target scope, I find 18x and higher scopes useless in my neck of the woods, while I’m on the tree stand deer passing under all day long, plus brush is to thick to make +500 yard shots. Back to the rings, they are simple medium weaver http://www.weaveroptics.com/rings_bases/rings/detachable_alum/suregrip.aspx
