    Well like the title says the rig I have for sale my APS 260 rem suprised the shit out of me today. It took 5 rounds to get her centered and start tipping the plate back. After I had her centered up I tipped her back 4 times in rapid sucession.
    I wish I had a spoter think I would have been on target a bit quicker. You can see 2 shots on the lower plate where I walked it up. I knew I was on target but I could not tell where until she tipped back. First 2 rounds where off the plate to the right.
    Target is 28 1/4" tall and 5" wide.
    Here is a pic of the 200 yard group and then the 875 yard group.

    No dout they will kevin but I should have included a pic of the rifle. I shot this target with a diffrent rifle.

    When my new scope gets here I will send some rounds out there.
