i have shot mine with factory bullets out to 600 yards without a problem, only at targets.. just bought a reloader, will work out past that this summer.. it shoots the 150 grain winchester power points very well, the 180s as luck would have it shoot just as well, they just drop a touch more.. but still consistent groups..
