Well I finally got to go to the range this weekend and shoot my celebratory gift to myself in response to Nancy Pelosi's rise to Speaker of the House. I found out what I was afraid of. This rifle is far more accurate than I am. The stupid thing consistently shoots where I aim it. I had a major shoulder surgery about a year ago, and have not shot long guns much since then, and now am convinced that me and this new friend of mine will have to spend many more days together. I have not bought the Eotech to go on it yet, so I am using iron sights. At 25 yards, sighting it in, my 5 shot groups, I could lay a 50 cent piece over with several times I had double hits in the same hole. At 100 yards, I still could lay a dollar bill over them. I was shooting off of a bench, and did not do as well free hand. I really need to get this shoulder back in shape. I caught myself moving the stock off of my shoulder, and deeper into my chest and was still consistent, just everything was to the right. The recoil was negligible, I shot around 150 rounds, and was a little sore, but not as bad as I expected to be. If you have not shot one with the 2 stage match trigger, you need to. It is crisp, no creep, or spongy feel to it. Also when it breaks it is very solid. The first few times I shot it, it surprised me that it shot when it did, I did not anticipate the shot at all. I really love this gun, now if .223 prices will just come back down, I will enjoy it a lot more!!!
