    Very nicely tuned factory trigger
    Er shaw barrel at 26 inches
    Has a 3x12 nikon monarch in the pic but it is no longer on the rifle. Lookin for new optics for the gun right now.
    Sorry for the upside down pic. I tried rotating it and nothing worked?

    What twist is the barrel? How far can you shoot 110's or 117's?

    It's a 1-10 twist. I have pushed 117 hornady sst out to 600 yards and hit milk jugs all day long. The sst don't have the best bc. There only around .390. If I load 115 nosler ballistic tips there around .453 or Bergers which are around .466 I could extend my range. I have shot moa and some sub moa groups at 400 yards.
    My scope limited me also. Put the monarch on my 22-250 for varmints. Now I'm looking at a vortex hs or pst in 4x16.
    Had thought about rebarreling to 6.5-06 for a better bullet selection but funds are a little tight.
