Not long range to us but, it might be for my daughter, Joelie. I used several people to help me get the rifle fit right for my 3yr old daughter as soon as she expressed interest in hunting larger game. She has been shooting a custom 22 for a while and said she wanted to shoot a deer. Well, several months ago I built the rifle and sent it to Shawn Carlock for a muzzle brake. Shawn then helped me work a special 223 load that generates decent velocity with ZERO recoil with is brake! She has over 500 rds down the tube and I finally got her on a doe. It was only 47 yards but, she made a perfect shot and the doe went 20 yards and piled up. She is shooting a 55gr ballistic tip at 1800fps and it performed flawlessly and exited the doe. Also for those that ask, she will be 4 in March so she is 3yrs and 9 months old! Thanks Shawn!!!
