Picked up my new rifle last weekend with 250 rounds. Fitted it with a Hardy Gen IV and a Sightron S-Tac 2.5-17.5 X56 on top.
Tried to zero it in the wind last weekend....just a waste of bullets. Got back to it on Thursday evening fairly still.
I didn't waste too much time and bullets on getting groups , needles to say that after the last clicks bullets were touching on a 10mm dot as target at 100yds.
Time to put it to work....over the rest of the evening a friend of mine and myself shot over 20 rabbits ranging in distance from 150 to 300 yds many of them little uns we had only two misses one was because of incorrect dialling and the other was trying to shoot through thin grass (forget it).
The set up is awesome , the scope dials perfectly, the optics are incredible for the money (Was able to use almost all the mag at last light, reticle very fine with small dot, very good field of view). Not quite Schmidt or Zeis but not far of (I am a PM2 owner) for a third of the price. The trigger is OK not fantastic, the set bit of it works well but I'm not a big fan, the normal trigger bit can only be lightened so much and the othe adjustment lets you remove the (gravelly )creep but go too far and the rifle is dangerous so I've left a bit of creep on. Will now look into trigger kit availability.
We did shoot a couple of close range ones on the way home totally obliterated them , litteraly smoking think I'll leave that for the HMR and 22.
Just getting reloading stuff together, am off to US in August so will get dies etc then unfortunately I am sure I will have spunked through my 250 well before then!
Will update as to progress, haven't tried it on a fox yet, I did not get it as a dedidcated fox rifle but mainly for long range rabbits but wanted something that would cope with fox if one turned up, seeing the accuracy and effects in rabbits I'd be happy to shoot one up to 200 with it. looking forward to seeing how it does with a bit more wind.
