  • An old favorite returns
  • I built this from a brand new Marlin X7TH Tactical. Bolt action, .308, 18" heavy barrel. I did a considerable amount of work to it to make it more accurate and comfortable. Longest range I can find around here is 200 yards, but I can make 10 shots fit in one hole.

    Had to sell it a few years ago because of money trouble. Was making a deal last night and to sweeten the pot he brought this out. Sold!

  • Nice to have that one back!

    Speaking of calibers, did you ever shoot much 30-06? Just wondered if you had any 30-06 experience with that kind of accuracy.

    ....nice cap btw

  • The 30-06 has a little longer range. My Father has a Savage 110L that he did a lot of work on. He can hit a dime at 400 yards with it. He used it for antelope hunting in Wyoming.

  • Ten shots in one hole? A bullet hole at 200 yards? Id drive to Michigan, bring a considerable bet, to see that happen.

  • Dan didn't tell us how big the hole was. LOL

    Or, 9 shots missed the target completely. LOL

    Nice shooting, Dan !!

  • One big hole a hair bigger than a quarter.
