These I believe were made in 2004 only as part of their special run series. My question is does anyone have one out there other than an unfired safe queen that they actually shoot. What scope do you use and what kind of groups do you get and with what loading? Commercial factory?,Surplus?,Do you have a favorite pet loading/certain handload combination(powder,bullet weight etc.)? Any info is appreciated. -d
I shoot mine all the time. It likes Hirtenberger JS 1983 best of all. +1 on the Leupold VX-II 3-9X40. If I was working up a load for it, I'd go with a long ogive bullet similar to the military ball like the Barnes TSX 200 gr. and push it to 2,900+ fps. It's a bit much for whitetails but should work perfect on elk, moose and bison.
