    Shooting 139 Lapua Scenars for Fclass matches. Haven't worked up a hunting load yet.

    The 139's shoot under 1/2 MOA 5 shot groups consistently at 100 & 200 yards.

    Shot in 500 yard match Saturday (589 - 20x) and 600 yard Sunday (584 - 15x).

    Saturday - 199 8x (1/2 MOA 20 shot group), 197 8x, 193 4x
    Sunday - 197 3x, 194 8x, 193 4x

    I was able to dial and put the cold bore shot in the X ring on Sunday. Also found that there is little to no difference in my cold bore and follow up shots, not sure if this is due to shooting moly bullets or this is what match quality barrels do.

    This is the last relay at the 600 yard match Sunday, dropped 7 points, it was my lowest score of the day. Heavy mirage with very little wind (2-3 mph) made for tough shooting. The 10 ring is 6" in diameter. The one high shot was taken while the mirage was boiling...

    I'm very happy with the rifle.

    22 shots.
