Well how did she do?
If it is tourist season, why can't we shoot them?

She did well.i was with some non-shooters that were trying to get new gunshots and running. One didn't realize you have to do anything to a scope but mount it and go.

I got 5 rounds, after boresight, I was about 3 inches low, 2 inches left at 100. I doped it and fired a group and was done.

It grouped well, I like the feel of the gun, very stable, very mild shooting.

Now I start working on hunting rounds.

He's an asset manager, whatever the hell that is.

Right now it has a 3-10 swaro but it needs a little more scope, I think.

I like the gun!

My auto-corrects and typos are getting intolerable!

Get a nice 3-15x or 3-18x for it. That's the right mag range for this gun, I think.

It does not hurt that there are several excellent scores it there in this magnification range.

I am messing with VX-6HD 3-18x44 and Razor HD LH 3-15x42 right now. Both have a lot to recommend themselves.

I seem to really like this configuration all in all. The scope that sits on my precision guns most of the time is Tangent Theta 3-15x50.

i've tried H100, Varget, and H4350 with 120 and 123 bullets (about 5 kinds of them).
H100 shot almost every load and every charge with Lapua Scenar 120 into single hole groups and most other bullets in 0.5 MOA. Best powder i've tried, but could not find more, so when i came upon H4350 i bought 9 pounds of it.  
I settled on 123 AMax and almost maximum charge of H4350 for hunting and a reduced load with Lapua Scenar for practice.
i use Nosler premium brass, but will replace it with Lapua eventually. It appears that Nosler brass is slightly heavier and has less capacity than Hornady brass, slightly.
