    That's some good shooting man. Sounds like an addiction to me, but I understand. :) JohnnyK.

    that stock is awesome looking, and I think thats a great group, if you are a newbie like me we can only get better, I shot a 3.75'' 3 shot at 650 and thought it was great,,,,,,,,,,,,,,good luck and good shooting sounds like you will have no problem getting a better group on paper with practice and its fun too.

    Good shooting! There is a big difference between thinking you can shoot 600 and actually shooting 600. Outstanding.
