i truly do appreciate it Ron. I am enjoying the rifle a lot to be honest. Its a good solid bolt action and its fun tinkering with things on it. Once i get more supplies to build the primer holder/spacer, i'll be able to mod the new firing pin and make it a very thin shaft that hits the primer rather that the big chunky firing pin it currently uses.
Shot this yesterday evening at 100 yards with 90gr bh209, cci 209m and 245gr powerbelts.
If I was gonna do all that I would just custom build holy cow. Whats sold me on BH powder all the prior mentioned & no shelf life that was very cool. I agree with HM who ever said tighter is not better I'm talking about guns go TC ! Good to see ur having fun with the thing tho FG
didn't say give the gun to a kid. i said in turn do a good thing like get a kid started in hunting that normally maybe wouldn't hunt.
yup like i said, bought a cva had a bad experience with them and i pass that info on. others may disagree but that doesn't change my experience or opinion.
I agree I would not give that gun to a kid. The recoil may ruin or ward off ever shooting again. Unless they want to hunt from a led sled. Or a really light load. I never use a sled to sight in a gun just a front rest be it sand bags or so on. I could sight in with a sled then pick up the gun shoulder it & be way off target. Adding that extra lop from the sleds recoil reduction butt stock holder & awkward cheek weld compared to shouldering the gun can effect accuracy in the field big time.
