Question is what are the pros and cons and if it was your weapon would you change anything other then the optics. And does it have the cappability to be a long range shooter which is my intentions. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks
I bought one of those about two years ago, and surprisingly, it has turned out to be a tack driver. The barrel was exceptional, again a surprise. Mine loves 168' and 175 SMK's, and a load of 8208. I bought it as something to shoot in the off season. I have several one holer' targets at 100, and a few .37 groups at 200. The scope that came with it is junk, so don't even bother. I put a Nikon monarch on it, and it is a nice rig, that didn't cost a fortune. I also have almost the same rifle in 22-250, that is green, with the BDL floor plate. Another tack driver. Good luck,maybe you got a good one!!!
