    Hello from Az

    Thanks for the add. I just bought my first gas gun which is also currently my only rifle. I knew this would be my only rifle for some time and wanted something I could do a little bit of everything with (hunting, plinking, long range stuff etc.) I went with a P.O.F. revolution chambered in 6.5 creedmore. For optics I opted for a Burris xtr2 4x20 scope mounted with Leupold rings and a magpul bipod.

    Right on, I got this gun for Christmas and have yet to be able to get out there to shoot it. I will be out there on Sunday but it's for my daughter's archery tournament and still won't be able to shoot.

    I'd be interested to see what kind of MOA groups that rifle will shoot and whether it is done with factory ammo or hand loads.

    For now I only plan on shooting factory ammo as I'm not set up for hand loading and do not have much interest with all the other things I have going on. I plan on zeroing it with hornaday precision hunter 143g amminition. From what research I have done it seems to shoot the most consistent out of gas guns as far as hunting ammo goes.
    I also plan on using it bench rest for the initial zero to eliminate human error as much as possible. I have shot sub moa with my old 700 7mm mag but that was an entirely different beast. I will let you know how it shoots.

    I would grab a box of federal gold medal 168gr, or the American eagle M1a load
