Finally got the Custom Swede sighted in; VERY impressed

I always knew this rifle was a shooter but had some concerns about accuracy in a full length stock, so I glass bedded it just for insurance. After bore sighting I set up my "custom" rifle rest and sighted in at 90 yards (the length of my back yard). Ammo was factory Hornady Custom 140 grain in 6.5x55. First pic is 3 shot string measuring .357 inches, second pic is total of 6 shots.
I think with some final fiddling with windage we are set for deer season.

Fine gun and a fine cartridge. Mine isn't that good but it is pretty darned accurate. Of course if mine WAS that good I still couldn't get those groups because the gun is much better than I am.

Generally; those Swedes and that 6.5x55 round are very sweet shooters. That's why I have three of 'em. Two are all original Mod. 96's and one is one of those that were sporterized by Kimber back in the mid-1990's. The 6.5x55 is also one of my favorites when it comes to reloading. Looks like you're gonna be all set come deer season.
