Well, I finally got my first bolt rifle a little while ago. I don't have any pictures of it, but most of you have probably already seen pictures of it here.

http://www.snipercentral.com/sc3.htm

I finally got out to the range this past weekend. I have to drive about 2 hours to get to a public range that goes out to 100 yards.

I messed around with one box of hunting ammo at first. I then did some testing on my skills with some PMC match ammo, 140gr. The rifle is absolutely wonderful. It does need some more shooting to get the action smoother, but I will definitely be enjoying the process of getting it there.

It was about 98 degrees with minimal wind gusts around 3-5 mph. I am going to see if I can find out what the humidity was in the area for future reference as well. The target is a 2" square.



I am very happy with the group since it was the first time I had ever shot a bolt action rifle. I know it can definitely do better, and I will be keeping track of it's, and my, progress. I can't wait to see how it likes some different Lapua ammo.

All to true.

I'm really anxous for John to try some Lapua 6.5 through it. I didn't get the opportunity when I was testing the rifle.

Pretty good. Now you have to start handloading for it.

Break out the Sierras and the H-4350. Believe me once you start handloading, you will never look back.

John,

Very cool, dude. Just like one of the other posters said, wait till you can reload your own match grade ammo. Have fun.
