At 1,000 yards there's going to so much drop I can't see a couple hundred fps (at most) at the muzzle making a significant difference

A day spent at the Clark County Shooting Park and we got the scope zeroed in under 20 rds. Got on paper with American Eagle 150g then switched to Federal Premium 168g Match to fine tune. The blue tape on my trigger finger is a Band-Aid on the cut I got scraping it on the door of Marn's FSJ getting my rifle case out of the back seat.







Pretty pleased with this five shot group at 100 yds.



Until Marn did this three shot group (after I zeroed it for him)

HA!

Don't be jealous, you're twice my age, I know you cant see all that well and you're a little bit shaky hahaha.

Nah, it was a blast, thats a hell of a rifle you put together.

Will be following this also. Just bought myself an R700 ADL chambered in .30-06. Not on the same level as your 700 of course but I have aspirations of eventually using it for some long target shooting. For now it will suffice as a deer rifle Great groupings btw...wish I had those kind of skills!

Cheek pad installed and replaced the 9"-13" bipod with a 6"-9"...



Spent a few hours at the range yesterday and today. Zero looks good at 100 yds and now it's time to head out to the desert for some 400-800 yd work.

Is that stock pack you've got just an ammo holder or does it have a pouch as well? If it has a pouch can you PM me a link to it?

I'm new to guns, but it appears there are no iron sights on this gun when new. Does this mean the gun needs to be purchased in conjunction with a scope? Can I just to short range target shooting with some type of aftermarket iron sights or something?

This bolt gun was designed to be used with a scope and has no iron sights. I paid $780.00 for the rifle (but I have since seen it fro $700.00) and $900.00 for the scope. You can find a decent scope for less and put together a solid rifle for around $1100.00. But there is a saying...buy once, cry once.

Exactly what I have in mind. Which is why I want to start off with a good gun.
