First fox I shot was 72 yds, pics to gory to post (head shot, Speer 52gr HPs).
havent tried any groups at 200 yards yet mate.

as for bullets it shoots the cheap privi ammo well and sako softpoints in 50 grain, 55 grain federal softpoints, and winchester 50g silver tip ammo.

grouping at 100 yards is 1/4 to 1/2 depending on ammo and me
