Lol,, bought the exact same rifle a couple weeks back.. Nice lookers but I will tell yah all,, after twice on the bench with it now it better get better. This rifle has not impressed me yet, terrible groupings.. Going to play with it more this week and see. Yesterday had it where I thought it was good at 100 and then put the paper out to 250 and wow what a mess,, all over the place, had a hard time to even keep it on a 8 x 11 piece of paper. Brought it back into 150 and still not impressed. Maybe the barrels were getting hot not sure but very poor. Ran out of shells so I will once again try some different shells and try again, but if it doesn't get any better,, don't know what I will do..

I think that's what we were doing,, getting the barrels a little to hot.. Like I said I am going to get it out gain this week and take it a little slower and see what happens.
