First "Specialized" Rifle

I have always had your "standard" hunting rifle. Factory ammo, straight out of the box, shoot it to sight it in and go hunting. Im new to the LR world and this is my first shot at a long range rig. Will be shooting 210 VLDs and 208 AMAX. Looking forward to my first hunting season at extended distances!

Welcome to LRH and enjoy!

I think you're all set up. Keep us posted and do share pix at the range and afield.

Happy safe shooting/hunting.

Almost forgot! This is a pic of the first four rounds through the rifle at 100. Bottom shot is cold bore. top hole is three rounds! Dont know why but the picture came out sideways, this holes are supposed to be vertical...
