This grouping was made five shots after mounting the 4200 for the first time...not much work involved, huh?

Rifle:  Model 70 Winchester Classic Featherweight .280 REM w/Bushnell Elite 4200 3-9x40mm (Multi-X reticle).

Ammo:  Remington 140gr. Pointed Soft Point, Core-Lokt ($24)

Conditions:  Clear, sunny.  NW breeze @ 3-5mph.  53 degrees.

3/4" grouping @ 100yds.

Who says that "cheap" ammo can't do the trick?

Nice shot!  What ammo were you using?

For what it's worth...the quarter in my picture isn't attached to the paper and wasn't the intended target.  I just put it next to the grouping to show a decent size comparison.

I've found the Remington Core-Lokt ammo to be some of the most accurate factory stuff around.

Looks like someone was using  .223     Big Smile

The .280 is a nice choice!!!   Thunbs Up

Would that fall under the heading of "perforation?????"...
United States Code

§ 333. Mutilation of national bank obligations

?Whoever mutilates, cuts, defaces, disfigures, or perforates, or

The "deadliest mushroom in the woods" have proven to be very accurate in all of my rifles!

  Glad that REM ammo worked for you.  Just goes to show that if your going to use factory fodder you best check and see what works in your firearm.  My friends .270 FW doesn't like 130gr Cor-Lokt ammo but like my .270 FW it LUVS 130gr Winchester Power point ammo.  BUT then mine won't shoot 130gr Silver Tip ammo at all.  Whacko

The plain Jane, 140 grain Remington PSP Core-Lokt is the most accurate factory ammunition I have found for my 7mm-08 also. With no tuning whatsoever, this ammo regularly shoots two nearly touching and one about 1" away at 100 yards.
