    This is 40 rounds of my handload's into one target at 100 yards, not bad. This is certainly "good combat accuracy", pretty much all I'm looking for from this rifle.

    I did give the barrel a couple of 10 minute breaks, I don't want to get it smoking hot, lol.

    In case you're interested, the load is 26.5 grains BLC-2, Rem Case, Wolf .223Primer, and Hornady 55 soft point.

    The orange bullseye is 8" in diameter. I kept all but 6 or 7 of'em at 3", not too shabby.:)

    Redneck; That's nice shooting, your bad guy didn't stand a chance.

    A couple of questions, what series Mini is it, with what barrel twist? Every Mini seems to like a particular bullet. What stance were you using? Open sights?

    Just taking notes, as I'm also working on improving my Mini's 100 yard hits. Keep us posted on your progress.
