    Bench shooting with the newly mounted peep sight. 100 meters on Electronics
    This ended up as the best round. And I’m more than satisfied with the result.

    I notised that after 8 shots the spread started to increase. So i had to wait for the barrel to cool down a bit.

    A total of 65 bullets went through the barrel this pretty chill day.

    Excellent shooting! That is a great result for iron sights and a sporter weight barrel.

    For this particular round I waited 3-5 minutes between the shots, just to try to keep the spread closer. It I just love the accuracy on this gun.
    But the barrel need to be at a ok temperature (as all hunting rifles I guess) to get the last shots where you aim. For 3 rounds shooting this wont ba a probleme.

    Right! With a hunting rifle what is important is not where the fifth shot from a hot barrel goes but where the first shot from a cold barrel goes.

    So true!! I never killed anything with a group of bullets. I shoot year round, but right before a hunt I fire ONE round with the rifle I'll be using to insure that first shot is where I want it.
