    Yep. There's a bag of ammo dedicated to that gun in the Ranch Truck. We also forgot the good 6.5 CM (lapua brass) ammo, and the wind was ripping.. So I was irritated as f*@K for a good part of the shoot.

    Here she is



    I saw this box of 60 grain Vmax ammo in the vault and thought Perfect for the 788, look closely, I didn't



    Bought that to test out my Bulgarian AK74, shot good out off that gun, LOL
    I sprayed the 69 grainers all over the place, it was ugly.

    I have a R700 in 223 that also shoots lights out and I love it. I grew up in Sierra Vista and now live in Michigan, so I am very jealous of you guys!!

    Iíll get Mike Rock to put a 17-4 PH stainless steel barrel with a 1/10 twist (if he can locate the steel) or perhaps get a Carbon-fiber PROOF twisted on it. Not sure and my life circumstances are such that I am not in a position to do a lot of long range Precision shooting/training so maybe Iíll do nothing.

    I adore the FN rifles and should have purchased a basic one after the A3G. I kick myself everything I look at itÖ

    Mjoinir, did you ever get out and bang on that A3G? You made everyone jelly on that post.

    The only thing that sucks with buying new guns is putting all the shit on them, Glass-Bipod-Level-Bedding job-Unicorn juice......

    They really are worth owning. I have a Ruger Compact American Rifle and a CZ 527 Varmint. Both are very enjoyable to shoot and shoot well, the Ruger better than it should with its floppy stock and 2-7x scope (I have less than $500 in the whole package).
