got this from a friend sat as the price was right.he hadn't shot it in 8-9 years this was his coyote rifle.he told me it shot real good and had a low round count.
brewed up some hand loads and hit the range yesterday morning.I think with some load work and finding the sweet spot it can do better.I only shot out to 50 meters.I was surprized the 62 gr "pulled" bullets shot so well as they had some serious pull marks on them.yesterday I called midway and ordered 2 ruger 20 rd mags.the rifle came with 4 mags but 2 of them are junkers.

Hello Pete: Great groups! You could also try H335 powder. It was designed for the 223 round. I use it and am well pleased with the accuracy in my rifles. hth greg :)

thanks for the heads up greg.I bought a 8 lb jug of the 2520 so it will be a bit before I switch powders.I can reload for almost all my rifles with 2520.it is great in 308 and 7.62x54R.

Good shooting Pete. Iv,e only used Varget so far but am going to try H335 too a little later. I found a couple 1 pounders of Varget back a few months ago when everything was hard to get.
