I really like this little thumper!!!!

I made it out to Williams Gun Sight for an hour this morning to shoot it for the first time. All shots were at 100 yards with factory 250gr Hornady black box ammo.

Right bull on right target is my first string of three after boresighting.

Left bull on right  target is next three after adjusting scope. My best group of the day.

Not bad for the first 6 shots. The Geissele two stage trigger rocks, scary crisp.

Left target are more shots after adjusting the scope to be about 2" high at 100.

Center, lower circle of right target was last 6 shots.

Had a few loading issues, if you slap the mag in too hard with an open bolt the round tips up and will jam on loading.  Will have to play around and see if its a mag issue or just inherent to this round.

This kicks about as bad as a 20g with field loads. I can feel it after shooting a whole box. Due to some shoulder issues I really can't take to much any more

Excellent, always good to shoot one after many hours of getting it together and having good results.  Looks like it will be quite functional.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!
