    Where's the gun porn?!? Let's see a pic or two. Mods may be hard to come by on that model. I'd say shoot the hell out of it.

    Val you are an incorrigible tease.... . I see NO gun porn posted!

    I sincerely wish you the best of luck with that scope. Many of them had serious issues but at least Springfield has been good about honoring their warranty on those that failed.

    Nice! Only suggestion if you're using it in the field vs. bench is a cant/swivel bipod. Couldn't tell if yours was or wasn't cant/swivel.

    Post pics of groups asap!

    Sounds and looks like a great start.

    My only reommendation is that you get out there and start shooting.

    My best mod every had nothing to do with the rifle itself. A good shooting bench will improve your accuracy tremendously! Keeping the same rest and posture shot after and shot as well as being confortable are key.

    my rig....
