I had really expected to have had the chance to stretch its legs a lot more by now, but such is life. Oh well. The brief time I've had weren't under the best conditions--hot, lots of mirage and a nasty switching wind. Anyway, it's showing plenty of potential so far once I get some more trigger time:
A quick 400 yd zero check:
Crank up the ol' BDC and let 'er rip! Unfortunately the winds had me stymied pretty well--they weren't that strong but kept switching back and forth quicker than I would notice/recorrect my corrections.... Made for groups like this:
That was from 1000 yds. At least my vertical is under control. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
While a bit misplaced, this was my best for group size I'd say:
13" from 1100 yds. I'll take that for now I guess. With more trigger time and some better conditions I know the rifle has the potential to get it done way out there. Hopefully I'll have some more results before too long. Some higher BC bullets on the way will sure help with the wind too (all those were with the 240 SMK).
Oh, and all this was from my "solid as a rock, ultra steady portable benchrest:"
