Just came in from the Trumpisher's first range visit. Function fired 25 rnds. First 5 were at 50' to get the rough scope settings then moved to 100 yds for the next 20. Used my 4x Redfield on an old Bassett mount. Ammo is 136 gr fb over 45gr of 4064 in DAG cases. Temp 40 deg with range flag showing 1/2 to full from 8 to 10. I think this rifle might just be decent after it gets broken in.
Target on left was rnds 6 -16 on the new barrel. Right target was 16 - 26. Moved poi up and to the right for the right target. Needs just a tad more elevation next time to keep em all in the X.

Still working on the stock, an early SA walnut. Coming along nicely with BLO and maintaining the as issued appearance.
