Had one for years. With Sierra 55 grainers loaded to about 3400 it would keep 3 shots in an inch at 300 yards; off the bench or off its bipod, didn't matter. Loaded to max at about 3600 it would still shoot 1/2 minute.
Really miss that rifle sometimes but it had to go for medical bills.
The bullet was Sierras #1390 I believe.
I'd definatly give $250 for another one.
Also, Canjar made a limited number of replacement triggers for the 788, if you find one,grab it!!
