    This dog will hunt.

    I bought a Christmas present for myself a Ruger all american rancher in 300blackout and asked for Remington UMC 120gr otfp and reloading stuff for it. I did a trigger job on it and mounted a Leupold VX3 3.5 x10 on it.Well I could not wait any longer so on Friday before Christmas I bought some Remington at Walmart and Saturday went to range. This is the first 3 shot group I shot 11/16 group @100yrds

    Then on new year's day I went to range to shoot @ 200 yrds this is the group I shot 1 1/8 inch after I shot the first two shot and they were touching I got excited and had trouble holding still and may have pulled it a little. This gun and cartridge is a blast to shoot and shoot they do I got my reloading stuff and can't wait to reload for it. Widow

    I recently picked up one of these. Added a 1x Vortex scope, only scope available, and shot some nice 3/4 inch groups at 50 yards with Fiocchi 125 gr SST loads. This was from a makeshift standing rest. Probably will add a 2-7 power scope.

    I'm going to take a guess and say you were using supersonic loads? What brand and bullet weight?
    Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be bent out of shape.
