    Hi , this is a thread i posted at Snipers hide a few weeks back, thanks for looking....

    Got to try my NEW AWSM @ 1200yds for the first time today. The weather was a little overcast and a slight breeze but all in all , not to bad.
    The rifle has exceeded my expectations....still playing with a few different powders , but even in these early stages its an awesome shooting rifle.
    The S&B 12-5o- x 56 PMII is also very impressive, very clear and VERY usable @ 50X even with the dim light.

    With a little more load development i can only guess at what the rifle is capable of....

    Very impressed

    Went out again today, as the weather was much more pleasant than yesterday.
    Set up in a valley up the back of our place so as to shield from the wind a little.

    I only had a limited amount of Sierra,s to try so i limited groups to 3 shot,s once i finalize a load then i will shoot longer strings. NOT worried to much about point of impact , but more on group size.

    At the moment i am tryiung to decide on 2 particular powders....RL22 and ADI 2217 both are showing promise .The Sierra,s are shooting slightly better than the Scenar,s, which is a pity as the Sierra,s are twice the price!!!

    Some more pics..

    Very nice shooting. I like that rifle. Always have, but never really wanted to spend the coin on one. Maybe someday as a retirement gift to me!:D

    Thanks for sharing,
    Tank

    Ditto w/Sniperjwt. Wide open spaces aren't common in the southeast either.
