The Good: Rifle absolutely loved a handload of 26.0gr CFE 223 and Hornady 55gr JSP. Substantially under 1" at 100yds, and ZERO magazine or feeding issues.

The Bad: range conditions weren't optimal, 20-ish mph winds and poor rest were a handicap somewhat. Poor boresighting at Cabela's didn't help either.

The awful: Gun hated 68gr Hornady BTHP Match bullets with 8208XBR and CFE. Glad I didn't make many LOL or buy many. They'll be rotting on the bench for quite awhile I suspect.

All in all, neat little rifle with good ammo it will drive tacks :D

What optics are you using with the rifle? I got one last month and have only put 55 grn plinking loads and some 53 grn Federal through it, but its been impressive. Mines wearing a prostaff 3-9x40.

I'm running a Burris MSR-223 3-9x. Very nice, wish my range had longer than 100yds to shoot at so I can see how the hashmarks line up.

I'm in the same boat. The DNR range I shoot at only goes to 100. Enjoy the new rifle. I'm a big fan of mine.
