Nice, ya did Good. Gun and scope for 2 bills, can't beat that with an ugly stick. Enjoy that .243. Take care, John.

It's not what you do, but how you do what you do, that counts.
Just keep on keeping on!

50! that girl should be shooting Hornady 60 grain boat tailed hollow points over 30 grains of Dupont(IMR) 3031 at 250 to 400 yards.

Still its a sweet looking little girl.

Interests wide and widely varying.
Happily married 18 years. Retired on SS with lots of time to spend.
Started with .223 Ultra Bull barrel. Added .357 Talo barrel. Added an action and stock set bought here, 7.62x39 barrel. Then bought complete guns .444 Marlin and .300 Blackout. Leaving me at 4 complete rifles plus a barrel. Plus a 9mm stub job bought here, and I have been finding and buying H&R shotguns at our local pawn shop where they seem to go cheap.

Great job! The twin to yours I got loves the federal 100 gr soft points as Well. Mine isn't the blue box though. It shoots right up there with my TikkaT3 lite and tweaked 700ADL.
