New Knight KRB

Just got back from Lafeyette (SP?) Indiana's Sportsmans Warehouse. Picked up a new blue/compsite Knight KRB for $219+ tax. Can't wait to clean it up and try loose and pellets through it.

sounds like a good deal

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Got out Staurday and shot that new KRB. The first picture is with 2 Pyrodex pellets, 300gr XTP with Crushed Rib sabots at 25 yards, to get the scope sighted in. Started out the first 1/2 dozen or so shots were to the left. After some scope adjustments it put 4 right in the hole. Forgive the first picture, those shoot n c's are a pain when they stick together. I adjusted up and took a couple of more shots before moving the target out. Second picture the target was moved out to 50 yards same load but with 120gr Pyrodex loose RS. I may have not let the barrel cool enough between shots on the 50 yard target or, it could have been the change to 120gr loose. Either way I'm pleased with the first outing. Looking forward to shooting my favorite 250 and 300gr Barnes Expander MZ and messing with the powder.
