    I would like to, but I really want to stay under $1,000. But, I just got my stimulus check, so you never know...

    I put a Zeiss 6.5-20x50 on her and she shoots awesome!! Factory Federal 100 soft points (fireform) put 5 shots right at an inch at 100yards. Loaded up some full power 115gr Bergers and put 3 right over 1/2" at 100. I also shot 3 95gr Ballistic tips (fireform load) at 200yards at they group a touch under 1/2"!! I'm super happy so far. I can't wait to load some 105 and 115 Bergers and actually test them. Richard Graves is also going to make me some 115 Wildcats.
