my first high powered rifle!

So here is my brand new fired less than 20 times Remington 700 XCR long range Tactical rifle. .308 of course with a Night Force NXS 5.5x22x56 NP-R2 reticle.

Some pictures of the new baby. My targets after I got it zeroed at 100 yards. Each target has 3 shot groups. "No honey, I didn't miss once. Yes honey, I shot a 2 for 1." Two of my kids and I enjoying some sunshine at last here in PA! It is nice to finally get outside!

Re: my first high powered rifle!

looks like your boy will be shooting lefty! Far as I know he'll be in his right mind.
Runs in my family, I find it fascinating that I was not left eye dominant, like my brother and sister. I can shoot both eyes, just not so comfortable left handed, usually better shots though.

Nice rifle! Wish I had one like it!
