    Wow! I'm impressed.
    But shouldn't it have a crutch tip on the muzzle?

    I cleaned and checked the rifle last night. Trigger pull was factory set at 1lb 13.2oz on an average of five pulls. That is a bit light for me so I adjusted it up to just over 2lbs to start. There was quite a bit of fouling in the barrel but no copper fouling. Weird for sure. The rest of the rifle looks great. i loaded up my Tubbs fire lapping bullets 3-5. I will leave out 1-2 as this rifle should be sub 1 MOA so I will just use the Final Finish and polish bullets. I also loaded up nice group of Hornady ELD-X 143gr bullets over 37.6gr of H380 with CCI primers and Norma brass. I am all set to break in this rifle. Now, I just need to get some better weather to get to the range or cave-in and go to the indoor range.

    Trigger adjustment with hex key you store in the bolt shroud.








    Ammo I loaded tonight.

    It ain't me it IS the gun....buddy built it for me
    Hey Elk,that is some fime shooting!Yes,it is nice to have a great rifle.But it's not just the rifle,its the man behind the rifle.At that distance you have to know how to dial it in.A good app like istrelok and keeping notes helps me allot.A good scope too!
    I would love to see what my Ruger precision could do at 1200 yrds.My buddy and I were talking about him stretching it out to 1000 yrds.But,it would involve some work.Clearing trees and moving the berm.
    Anyway,before my buddy invited me,the gun club has me limited to 600yrds.And I was statisfied.I sometimes shoot my CZ 527 with 1-9 twist in .223 out to 600.With my 55 and 62 grain reloads,it actually fares well.Just had to find out what it liked.

    Did yours come with the Aluminum bolt shroud?Mine came with plastic.I replaced it with aluminum for, like $30.The plastic one bothered me.

    Physically this recovery has not been that tough. Mentally it has been a challenge. I am a very active person and just laying around drives me nuts so this type of diversion really helps. We have a great ski year going on here in Utah and it is driving me nuts that I cannot get on the snow. I even have grand kids skiing now and I have to sit here. So, my next goal is the local pin shoot with pistols followed by a range visit and shooting this Ruger Precision Rifle.
