The irony is that since I got the new chassis I have been able to shoot it only once. I stepped on a nail and got my foot infected. Winded up in the hospital had foot surgery was on high potency antibiotics. Now I'm just sitting around waiting for my foot to heal so I can get back to normal.

Here's the target that I used while zeroing it.

The 2nd group is actually 2 groups of 2 shots. The target is at 115 yards. You can see the holes tightening up with each progression. I need to finish zeroing because it's still not there. I used Federal GMM 168gr BTHP ammo.



FYI, I don't consider myself a particularly good shooter. When I was in Basic I scored as a "Sharpshooter" which is the middle of the 3 grades. Clearly the rifle is more capable than I am, but I'm planning on developing my skills now that I have more time.

When my foot heals I'm planning on taking it to the 1,000 yard range at my club.
