I LOVE the VTR, shoots great, killed three deer with it this year, and shot at a few prairie dogs early this spring. This was from a little long range plinking at 577 yards:

With a 12 twist you can shoot 175, 185 and 190VLD.

    Thanks - it's nothing serious. Just the average NyQuil commercial...coughing, aching, fever, sore throat. Although I haven't called yet, I do have the undertaker on speed-dial! ;)

    Now lets get back to the sexy varmint rifles! Gun porn always makes me feel better!
