isnt that one that Eichler uses.

good predator round
cheaper ammo than many other calibers
reputable rifle maker

Sounds like a winner

ok finally not only did I get my gun but I finally got it up-loaded for a look at!

At 400 yards my grouping was at .625 of an inch, 3 bullets.

Black hills / 52 grain

Hornady did ok in this gun but not as good as the BlACK HILLS!

A little under $1,100 , scope, bi-pod, 10 round clip along with 30 round clip and left hand safety with a left side extractor...

I have friends in secret places (all legal, FFL,etc..) that I can obtain good prices for guns, scopes, etc..

The gun shoots excellent with 56 grain hollow point , Black Hills rounds. Just diffulcult to find the ammunition....

Hornady is ok too.

"Eichler uses"

I think so...although you cant get this model in camo...which would be nice.

Congrats, they are a blast to shoot and tinker with. Try out the 55gr Combined Technology moly bullets, you won't be disappointed and they keep the copper fouling down.
