I had a 1V 223 some years ago and in a moment of insanity sold it to a friend. Another friend knew that I missed the one I sold and found one for me. It is older, but in this case, better. I shot it today and found that it likes the 55 GR Varmageddons better than other offerings. That is great as I happen to have a few boxes of them. It was cold, damp and windy but that rifle knows how to print a group that makes me look good. I have other 223s but this one will always be my favorite.
