Nice looking rifle, plus a great shooter.

    Today I took my new 308 out for a spin in the ground hog fields of Pennsylvania. Tagged one at 809 for a personal record!

    The red dot is 809! (pink dot is 950 where targets were placed.)

    The pics don't do this gun justice. I was lucky enough to get to shoot .280Fan's gun and let me tell you it was a pleasure!! IMO that Bushnell was worth every penny (including the ones he didn't spend). What I still can't figure out is how he could see that ground hog way out there with just 10X.

    Thanks guys. Considering the company I was in, I'm humbled by your comments.

    In terms of seeing a 'hog at 800 with a 10x scope, it probably helps that I'm far-sighted (20x10 vision)

    It's a pile of junk vehicles including a couple of large trucks - not a house.
