The weather hasn't been accommodating to say the least between hail storms, the next ice age and tropical depressions but now that spring is here look out! I am just honored to have this guy as a Smith whom I consider to be the best there is bar none but mostly as a learned friend. Many many Thanks go out to my main man "Bobby Ray" who comes to you as Bobby L Swagger for "edjumuhcatin' this ole Redneck or at least trying to. The mirage was so bad it looked like Dr Seuss's worst nightmare but still managed a pretty good group at 400 yds with "factory" BH's 300 grs. When I finally get a load worked up for this I suspect my F-class sticks will be calling in sick. I couldn't be happier with Pimp Daddy Roberto Gradeous's work. I retired 2 friends Savage 110 BA's this day so that was definitely worth it. I know its not a 5 shot group but this ammo is Spensive' so 3 shots it is....for now anyway. Even I can't screw things up with this laser.

You have got my attention. How did you shoot that group? Bags, bi-pod and bag, lead sled, high magnification, please explain. Please teach us mere mortals. You and the rifle are shooters!!!! Thanks

I'm just the nut behind the trigger. Wile e Coyote Robert Gradous made this all possible. It was shot off of a Sinclair rest and bench. The Mirage was pretty strong so I had it dialed down to about 24X to keep the target from doing jumping jacks. The thing is it has an affinity for anything you put in it. I am sure I'll shrink that group with my load work up. Thanks for the compliments guys.

Sweet rifle! Good shooter. I just received my Gradous built &mm STW a few weeks ago. I am waiting for glass… the wait is killing me. I ordered a ATACR FFP to put on it.

I think you're going to love it. Very nice selection with regards to the glass too.
