Very nice, I got my first 03/22 at the range. 200 yards right in front of the backstop. Mangy looking thing must have just came out of it's den. It won't be returning after catching a 69 grain Nosler Custom Competition.

Yep, she's a beaut! Congrats on the chuck. Our rockchucks are coming out but we're trying to hold off until May. We don't have a lot of them so we've been deliberately limiting ourselves over 1000 yards until the first of May...so far, it's been pretty easy on the resource! ;)

Thanks, that rifle sat in storage for approx. 40 years. I got it new in the box in 2006. What a find. My friend had about 15 of them that were stored all those years. 222's, 222 mags and 243's from a gun store that closed in 66". When the owner passed his wife contacted a friend who purchased them.

Nice rifle and glad you connected. I was in PA several weeks ago and could not believe it when a 'hog poked his head up when it was 25degrees out! He was 652yards and juuuuuuust missed over his head.
