I'm really having a lot of fun with this thing. This precision shooting is pretty cool- it's fun to do, but also is sort of cerebral, because you have to consider bullet drop and distances and all the little things. I like it because I can stop thinking about other things and just focus on s hooting. Plus, it's like an AR- lot's of accessories, and other cool stuff to waste money on.

Lot's of guys like the Remington 700 rifles, but I have a thing for Kimber rifles, I guess. I got this at our local Friends of NRA banquet. I don't know why, but it just sort of talked to me.

So here are my first attempts. The first target is 50 yards, so I could sight it in, and the second is 100 yards. The gun definitely does no like lighter bullets. I'm looking forward to getting out again this weekend.

The trigger is great. No take up at all. Very crisp.

Speaking of the Remington 700, I was at Bass Pro this afternoon. I finally got a chance to andle a 700. I was surprised at how light it was, and how less substantial the bolt and action seemed compared to the Kimber rifles I've used.

I know the 700 is a fine rifle, but I was actually surprised at how different it felt, and also at the difference in fit and finish between the Kimber and the Remington.

The Kimber, of course, should be a step up in finish, because it is a substantial increase in cost.

Good shooting! Handguns are my first love but I have to agree there is something about being in the grove shooting a rifle and getting groups like that. It's like an out of body experience!

After break-in, top=of-the-line premium rounds with a decent scope using sand bags should do 3 shots covered by a nickel at most as you may well have all 3 touching. Don't clean it to death once it is broken in. Bore snakes are a target rifle's friend. Once it becomes a tack driver, don't mess with it. Mil-dots are very useful when coupled with a good range finder or one of the very good free android download programs.
