    I LOVE IT !
    My boy shot the 1.173" 8 shot group @ 150 yards :D he said he want's this gun. Guess I'll have to build another one...LOL...I shot the two three shot groups a 0.369" and 0.708" @ 150 yards. This was with factory PPU 120gr HPBT! can't wait to reload for this! BTW the Vortex Strike Eagles thick crosshairs cover that orange dot. I bet a fine crosshair scope would be better for shooting groups but, for hunting it will do.

    Nothing like instilling confidence in a kid to make him love shooting!
    Did you tell us about this gun someplace else? If not please give details.

    I wish I would have years ago. You won't regret it that's for sure.

    The ammo situation is a little challenging from time to time if you try and find it locally but I am getting a good supply of brass built up. But all in all I like mine quite a bit. I've done everything from 600m f class to laying waste to coyotes at 300 with mine.

    I've heard horror stories of busted bolt lugs but a few hundred rounds in and no problems yet knock on wood. Still planning on picking up a spare.

    Yeah, shooting Grendels sucks! Until you go out to about 600 to 700 yards they're no fun at all..

    I had to go back and see what barrel you had on this,and yeah I would expect the BHW barrel to perform like that.
    Heck mine in 556 was pretty good with any ammo
