All right guys, Just got back from my deployment, no big deal at all. I couldn't wait to get on the range and try out my new baby. First of all I would like to say that this rifle is right out of the box, no mods. I wanted something that I could take to the range and shoot over and over again and not worry about recoil, and barrel heat. I choose the 308 and loaded up some 168 SMK's. This rifle is a dream to shoot and I felt as if I could group any way that I wanted. It felt as if I had been shooting this rifle for years. Turns out that the rifle that I "Got a good deal on" is now my favorite to shoot. Not to mention that she is easy on the eyes with her high end wooden stock and the stainless fluted barrel. Yeah guys, I can't say enough about this rifle. All I can say is outstanding results and I can't wait to shoot her again. This is by far the best "out of the box" rifle that I have ever shot. I hate to say it, but she puts my weatherbys, remmys, and wins to shame. Oh yeah, that Kahles 4-12x52 multi-zero is a very cool toy. Standby for pics.
