    Is that the same rig I saw you post pics a while back, or is that another rig that just looks similar?

    Very nice stick. Does it shoot as deadly as it looks.Let's see some range reports on that badboy.

    It will do a 300 grain bullet at 3000 fps pretty easily. It haven't shot many groups with it, but at 750 yards with a stiff wind it shot 2.5" group, I headshot a possum at 200 yards, hit a lot of metal with it. It's pretty sweet and not much recoil. It weighs 22 lbs all ready to shoot.

    Will do after this weekend. Might go to a mile! It has shot a 2 inch group at 750 so far, the only real group I shot for. 200 rounds through it as I type.
