Hi. I got the bullet hose out at the local indoor range. I used Fiocchi 115gr fmj and tried some 124gr Gold Dots. THe magazines for the Sterling hold 34rnds, but usually run best with 30-32 loaded in. Instead of followers, they actually use rollers, making it easier to load and helping reliability. Shooting was good, though I need to adjust the front sight and raise the POI and move it over right a few inches. COM was rapid fire at 30ft and the head shots were 65ft. Function was good with Fiocchi, but it doesn't do Gold Dots...period. It would mash the hollowpoint and set back the bulet in the case from being slammed by the heavy bolt. I was able to get through enough Gold Dots to put up a nice six shot group, though way low and left at 65ft. The peep and post sights seem coarse, but they work well and recoil is pretty close to zero with only the heavy bolt bumping the sights off. Pretty much an easy shooter.
