that sounds like a great little gun; 20" barrels are so handy, especially in the coastal woods of western Washington. when I rebarrel my Spanish mauser (next summer) in 7x57 mauser I'm going with a 20", light, handy, plenty of power, and low recoil. Those core lokt's are great bullets and nuthin wrong with 1.25" groups, that's venison in the freezer. Good Luck and great shootin !!
