    Picked it up on-line used, had one box of shells shot through her. The gun with seven boxes of Honady 32 gr. V-MAX varmint express and shipping for $800. Not a scratch on it. The Hornadys run about $20 a box, minus the shipping, the guns
    cost was about $645....not a bad deal. Mounting a Leupold VX-III 6.5-20X40 this weekend, and will test it on some coyote next week.

    Good looking rifle!

    Let us know how it shoots - I'd like something like that for varmints myself.

    The Leupold is mounted, Butler Creek caps , a black Ruger sling and Harris Bi-pods
    added, a nice looking rig. its +5 outside, snowing and blowing, looks like the sight in will have to wait a day or two

    I just picked up a new #1 in 7mm Mag. Waitin on a scope, and I'll do some sighting in this week. If you eject an empty(or snap cap) does it hit the safety lever on yours? it does on mine, and bounces back toward the breech. I was told I could adjust the ejector spring and alleviate this problem.
