Talking Third range trip - I think I got a good one

I can't help but post again. I was very hesitant on buying this rifle and now, after 3 outings with it, I'm so glad I bought it. It's a blast, literally, too shoot it. (15-22 Sport of course).

I'd say after today I've put maybe 1500 rounds through it. Still using Federal auto match, Winchester Super X, and now I tried a hundred or so Remington. (Golden bullet). In all that, I've had maybe 15-20 total FTF or FTE. Not that bad I think, and all of those were with the Federal. No other issues, knock on wood, at this point.

I've sighted it in at 50 yards using only the stock sights and it really is spot on. Love it. Who would have thought a .22 could be this much fun. The other positive is the easy cleaning\maintenance. Love that too.

Now to convince the wife, as I mentioned in another post, that I NEED it's big brother, the M&P 15, LOL.

Thanks for reading. Now to head out and find more ammo.

Excellent and yes, you have found the achilles heel of this rifle; it's insatiable ammo appetite. It can be challenging to keep these thing fed.
