Just finished a trigger job and hammer spring replacement on my new toy. Barrel is (Thanks DAN L on SP) an OTT 20 Vartarg step barrel (1.25 Diameter) 16.5 inches long. May be some potential here. Scope is a Burris MTAC 6.5-20x50mm. Forearm is a Tony G Pillar Bedded. Temporary grip is a beautiful Dave D. red laminate, but Walnut grip to match forearm is being order. Cartridges are loaded with a light load of H4198 and 32 Gr Hornady V Max. Rest of course is a Fuzz work of art. I am guessing around 3300-3500? This thing is a HOOT to shoot. Cant wait to really have time to play with. Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. I KNOW I did.
God Bless
Doug


Target was at 50 Yards

Now to practice freestanding ...no rest.

Just kidding, Mighty impressive as a starting point.
&I think I was going big sights with a 7X Burris on my 45-70 TC/tender.
Congrats on something, completely different.

I shoot a 14? 204 Ruger with similar results. A total blast to shoot, and I mean that in every possible sense LOL
Busting golf balls out around 150yds is just too much fun! I set up on the end of the rifle range, bring a bunch of balls, an iron and some tees. No need to walk down and reset targets. Plus the way I hit a golf ball I insure the targets are not clumped too close together.
