Re: gifts for boys
I Got one of those as a gift from the old man and now he's torqued because it out shoots all of his guns except his senderos. It's a 243 and loaded with reloader 19 pushing an 87gr. vmax it is a less than a 1/2 minute of angle gun out to 100yrds. Havent shot past that with it on paper, but it has killed a couple hundred ground squirles this spring along with a dozen or so head shot grouse and 2 whitetails this year. The farthest shot on a ground squirel this spring was closing in on 300yrds. Not that it cant hit them farther but I just dont have any where that they hang out that is farther than 300yrds. It wont quite keep up with my dads 22-250 in his sendero but at 100yrds you should be able to cover the group with a quarter no prob. Rembering this was less than 400$ and dads sendero was around 650 if I remember, I cant complain for a light weight pack around gun. I dont know if they all shoot this good but mine is as good as they come for under 400$. Be Carefull though because they might start making a fool out of your friends when they start out shooting them. Merry Christmas.
I dont know who ever came up with the imaganary word of "Over Gunned"
