    Just picked up this one the other day.:cool: Take a look.
    Going out on Sunday to see if it's as good as I was told. So what do you guy's think can I take her out to 600 yard's. Going to shot some old Western Super X 180 GR. Silvertip's

    Winchester 670 .30-06

    Holland's Muzzle Brake

    Leupold 3.5x10 50mm Golden Ring Scope

    Roch Mount Bi-pod 9"-13"

    Limbsaver Slip On Recoil Pad

    Uncle Mike's sling

    Ok the reason it has both a brake and a pad is because I am a wuss I got wiplash along time ago and the recoil from my 7mm mag. brings it back every time. So this thing should shot like a .22 well maybe not that soft but I can hope. :wavey:Thx for looking any input would be greatly appreciated.

    I have written elsewhere that most hunting rifles are capable of long-range shooting; however, the limiting factor is often how adjustable and/or repeatable the scope is. Your scope does not have target/tactical-style knobs, so making the elevation adjustments needed will be less convenient than if you had them.

    Depending on your particular rifle, you that load should require approx 13-14.5 MOA additional elevation to get to 600 yards from a 100-yard zero.

    Thx Zak, I got it good to go at 100yd's 3/4 inch 3 shot group.
    But it did'nt do so good at 200 about 2 1/2 inch three shot groups so I did'nt try any further than that, after all it is a hunting rifle.
