I did yesterday.
While waiting for Son to show up to work on the combine, I got the 6.5 Creedmoor out to check it over. Then I thought , what the heck, I'll just run a patch through the barrel and check the zero with the 140 grain HPBT ammo. If I'm going to do that I may as well mount the YHM Reasonator so I don't have to wear ear plugs, right?
Anyhoo, after getting all that done I finally made it to the range. I only got 3 shots before I heard Son coming down the road but that rifle brings out a giggle with every shot. Downside is it's heavy(about 9#) and long(49.5"). Up side is there's hardly any recoil and it's hearing safe plus laser beam accurate.
As I said in another post, I'd like to take it elk hunting but don't have suitable ammo and don't want to file the paperwork to take it--maybe next year. It's just too bad that our enjoyment of such things is restricted by the archaic NFA regulations compounded by the ineptitude of the regulating agency.

Sure did. Unfortunately, that little shower we had Friday night and the constant overcast Saturday made the beans too wet to cut. Not any better this morning. The beans were 12% moisture last weekend when we had to stop and yesterday were up to 16-17%. The grain buyer won't even let me unload 16% beans so the few we cut for a test are in a holding bin with the fan running.

Three shots this morning sitting using crossed sticks produced a single overlapping splash on the 300 meter steel plate. Still giggling.
I've got to go over after my morning work meeting is finished and put a fresh coat of paint on that target so I can see the fresh bullet marks.
