“I wanted to send a couple of pics and a few comments on the components that I recently purchased.  The assembly was scary easy and the results were scary good.  Yesterday’s trip to the range was really just to test things out and get a few shots down the tube.  I went through a pretty standard break-in, cleaning between shots, and getting it sighted in.  I attached a pic of shots 15 thru 20, the first 5 shot group at 100 yards.  The resulting 1/4 moa group was impressive!  It is going to be a hammer…Thanks again!!”

Gene was using hand-loads, 140 grain Barnes Match Burner over 40.5gr of H4350.  A load that he developed for an RPR and adjusted the length to work with the new barrel. Chassis is a Masterpiece Arms BA Comp in NRA blue. The scope is Vortex Viper HS-T 6-24.
