Took the 40X HB to the range today.
 
Not sure what I was thinking today as the heat index in the shade was 105 degrees. This was the best 5 shot group I could muster. 3-9x32 scope and Wolf Match extra ammo. Slight wind, but so damn hot I could barely keep the sweat out of my eyes. Going to have to try again when it's not 97 degrees outside.

I have been happy with the way mine shoots at 50 yds. I have a 6.5 to 20 Barska Varmint scope on it. I am also shooting Wolf Match Extra. I have tried adjusting the 2 tension screws in the forearm and it does tighten the groups when you find the best setting.

How many different ammo types did you test?

2, Wolf Match Extra and Eley Tenex. Groups you see are from Wolf Match Extra. Only shot a couple rounds of Tenex as I only had one box. Was too hot and sweaty. I had no sand bags or bench rest. Just shooting off my rifle bag.
