    This rifle has 250 documented rounds. Shoots the 300 gr SMK'S @ 2850 FPS.
    Rifle with scope as pictured weighs 12.6 pounds. You will not find a better package in this weight range with the down range foot pounds of energy and is a joy to shoot.
    I easily have cold bore shots at 1000yds and have taken this rifle out to a mile.

    The ONLY REASON for selling is that I qualified to compete in the National Amateur Retriever Championships held in June, and need to fund my trip to Oregon.
    Will split out components if buyer of rifle does not buy them.

    Don't really shoot many groups, but did shoot a 2" vertical/ 2 1/2" horizontal 5 shot group at 725 yards last year. So, I guess it groups pretty good:)

    That sounds very encouraging, but if it didn't shoot many groups, how did you do load development over 250 documented rounds?

    Is it a single shot? If not, what is the max OAL the box will take?

    What is your load data?


    Thanks!gun)

    Load development took less than 20 rounds. The rest of the rounds were shot at distance verifying drop and fps, and having fun . I have a pic of a target at 100yards with a 5 shot group that measures .382 C/C, but cant seem to figure out how to resize it on photobucket ,in order to post it.
    I will say that a 5 shot group at 725 yards that measures 2 1/2 or less is all you really need to know about whether it shoots or not.
    yes, it is a repeater.
    Loaded rounds fit and feed in the magwell, no problem.
    Load data goes to the buyer.

    Throw in the dies, the bi pod, and a three day right of refusal and you have a deal.
