Finally got around to some range time with the 20 VarTarg. **MAN I LOVE BEING RETIRED** It is a 16 inch OTT step barrel (THANKS DAN L). It goes up to a full 1.25 inch bull matte barrel wearing a Burris 6.5-20x50MM Burris MTAC in 30mm Burris Signature rings atop a MGM six hole weaver style scope base. On an easy open frame with 12 ounce trigger and sporting Tony G wide flat bottom target forend with almost matching ambi grip (Made by Dave Dolin (Thank you My Friend) from a black walnut tree Harvested by my Father when I was 12, I'm 62 NOW) I could feel Daddies presence with every trigger pull, man do I miss that man. Believe I saw Momma smiling in the background as that walnut tree was supposed to be her mantel. While Daddy never got around to building it, every time the sun peeked out from behind the clouds I could feel their love. MY FAVORITE GUN for SURE. I decided on 18 grains of H-4198 Powder and 32 Grain Hornady V-Max Bullets. No pressure signs at all. Brass was new Remington being fireformed. It was pleasant 75 degrees, but with sunset approaching it was not a long session. Shot from my recently built loading bench and of course as always using a Fuzz Rest. Hope Cayle was looking down and smiling with Momma & Daddy, I know I was. Number of shots per group was 5 and range was 30 to 60 yards. Hope to stretch it out soon. What a Beautiful day, just Me my Contender and a LOT of Great Memories
Thanks for reading and have a GREAT weekend
Doug

That looks pretty interesting. Probably lots of fun.
