Whelp, I got my gun put together today! Barrel came in last week and my scope today.
I'm working with an otherwise stock frame, 15" 1:9 MGM 6.5 CR barrel, pachmayr decelerator grip, and Burris 3-12 LER with Leupold base/rings.
I haven't been able to acquire powder locally so I shot factory Hornady 120grn AMax. For my first time out shooting this type of pistol I'm pretty disappointed with myself. I was shooting about 2-3" groups at 100 yards on average but only had a chance to shoot 10 or so times(only took 3 shots to get sighted in).
I've got a lot of questions so I'll start at the top and work my way down:
1. Should I try the 140s since they are available locally?
2. Whats a good way to get a solid rest in a blind where I'll have a 2x6 for a rest and no grip support?
3. Should I look into reloading or are the factory offerings pretty good for now? I'm likely going to have to order powder if I want to reload.
4. Any suggestions on what I should work on aside from practice practice?
I'm really happy with the end result. I really like the Burris LER, so thank you all so much for helping me put this together. Just need to get better at it.
