    Came from the factory in post-ban configuration with fixed solid plastic stock, plastic grip, target crown and no bayonet lug.
    Installed the following:
    _Ace Skeleton fixed stock with 1" recoil pad (NJ legal and comfortable) (1/2" in the photos)
    _Hogue overmolded grip (One of the best bang for your buck products ever!)
    _Harris no swivel bipod (very stable, attaches to swivel eye)
    _Leupold VX3i 4.5-14X40mm AO (The AO really helps my older eyes)
    _Ironsighter rings (good product,low price, but more forward cant would help)
    Loaded with a steel 10 round magazine and 10 cartridges:10 Lbs., 13 Oz.
    Not a handy little carbine

    With good quality 55 gr ball ammo
    10 rounds at 100 yards

    With Black Hills 77 gr. Tipped Match King
    3 rounds at 100 yards

    LOL, The spot on hole covered with the black patch right above the bullseye -- a perfect shot -- was from a shooter several benches to my side shooting at a 50 yard target!

    Yeah, a lot of guys use that line. ;) I've seen guys at a match shoot on someone else's benchrest target, by "accident".

    That is a nice rifle, and a beautiful group, but why only 3 shots, when there shooting that good I usually shoot 5 just to make sure. Mine goes right at 11#'s with a 10 round magazine, btw I got my 1/7 twist bull barrel from A-1, not sure if they are in business any more, as well as the stock. I built mine back in the early 2000's and I can keep all 10 rounds touching at 100 yards. Mine also likes the heavier rounds as well, I believe mine devours the 69grn. Hornady BT. I haven't had mine out in quite awhile cause of the danged heat out here, and my health. It is definitely a bench rest type of gun due to the weight.

    1) Had only only one box of the Black Hills and look forward to shooting it at the next range trip

    2) I had already been at the range a while because, after waiting to set up my targets the shooter to my side cross fired and spoinled all all of my targets.

    3) I also wanted to shoot my Winchester Model 70

    4) Never had a 3 shot clover leaf and I wanted a good picture (this is probably the real reason)

    I need to find a 200 yard range.
    Fort Dix has a public range but I do not know the drill for public access

    I did one of those several years back with a 336 Marlin in .35 Remington with the 150 gr Rem Core Lokts. (I had to load them one at a time because they're pointed). Man was I surprised at that gun...and myself, for shooting that well!

    Nice shooting, you'll be printing those groups with all sorts of good ammo by the looks of the gun (and the shooter!):thumbup:

    Stay safe!
