Man, did this rifle really shoot!! I shot a bunch of 5 shot groups, and the best group was at 300 yards. It shot 5 shots into a 2 1/2" circle with a hot barrel. My friends were awestruck! One of them tried to better it with his original Mosin sniper rifle, but the best he got was 3 5/8" with his handloads. I really wish I had a scanner, because this is one of those Kodak moments. I shot it out to 400 yards and got a 5" group. All strings were shot from a rest, and all were about 10 minutes apart, except for the 300 yard shots. Little/no crosswind, 87 degrees, and 80% humidity. Total investment- $480. Best money I've spent in years.
