    I bought one on a whim about 4 years ago. After reading a few posts about the fluted chambers killing reloadable brass, and the butcher jobs Century did on some I was thinking about getting rid of it. So I gave it a thorough inspection/cleaning and figured I should at least shoot it to make sure it works.

    After checking the bolt gap which is .008 and making sure the bolt face was not ground down, I went to the range on Saturday. I had some cheap Pakistani ammo I bought around the same time. Off a rest it was shooting left about 4 in and grouping around the same size. It was 100% reliable and very pleasant to shoot. The fluting definately scarred up the brass.

    Then I tried some of the handloads I use in my 700. Wow, dead nutz accurate. First shot in the X. The next 19 were all within 2". Open sights mind you @ 100 yds And for whatever reason the LC brass I reload had some black marks along the flute lines, but was not scarred up. After an hour in the tumbler it looks almost new. Also the recoil was slightly less, but a noticable difference.

    I had so much fun with this I can not sell it now, I need to accessorize. All together I put about 70 rds through it. Did I get a fluke or will it fall apart on me at 100 rds.
