Nosler Trophy Grade rifle in 280AI with a Zeiss Victory FL 4-16x50

Running Nosler ammo with the 140G AB
Rifle literally is a one hole shooter at 100 yards.
And doing 2.5" groups at 500 yards

Pleasantly surprised at how soft of a shooter the rifle is given it's light weight.

   

headed out Thursday for a few days of hunting, hope I get to properly break it in!

Very nice indeed, sounds like it shoots as if it were a 15 pound bench rifle and looks great to boot, good stuff. Personally I carry a Winchester M70 from 1947 chambered in .270 winchester, topped with a 2.5 power Lyman Alaskan. I use the Winchester for close quarters hunting in the thick brush here in NC. For longer more open shots I use a custom built 6.5x55 Swede using a Howa 1500 action and a classic styled walnut stock I inletted, finished and bedded myself topped with an elite 3200.
