Beautiful rifle! Please let us know your impressions after you have put some rounds through it.
Thank you for the kind words,
Ok day two at the range just shooting factory Hornady ammo, the 147gr ELD-M best group at 100 yards is 1" most groups 1.25"
Adv velocity 2910 fps, Labradar-2909,2910,2886,2910,2913,2901

The 143gr ELD-X is much better .35" at 100 yards and 1.2" at 300 yards, very consistent velocity with both offerings,
Adv velocity 2960 fps, Labradar-2963,2965,2958,2957,2961,2968

The Zeiss V4 4-16x44 (Z-MOA reticle) is an awesome scope, very bright, tracks very well, my son and I were at the range yesterday shooting the 6.5 PRC and my 28 Nosler which wears a Leupold VX6 HD 3-18x44, we both agree the Zeiss is much brighter, clarity is a bit better, my son prefers the Leupold duplex crosshairs as the Zeiss crosshairs are a little heavy out at 300 yards, but all in all a very nice scope for the money.
