My son was itching to get to the range today and shoot his new rifle that he got for his 10th birthday. I loaded some 125 Nosler Ballistic Tips and grabbed a couple of boxes of Remington UMC that I had in my stash, and took off for the range. After zeroing and a little barrel fouling, he walked it out to 500 yards. Once we found the correct wind hold, he made 13 hits in a row at 500. That little rifle and that little dude are both shooters.

After shooting it today, I think I'm going to do the same thing. It's compact, lightweight, accurate, and cheap enough that you wouldn't have a stroke if you dropped it in the dirt. And no recoil at all with a brake on it. It's super fun to shoot.

Love it!!! I've also plinked with my Rem 700 in 300 blk out to 600 yards with my son. It's fun!

Awesome stuff! I have one of those rifles, but it has to go back to Ruger. Don't know if it's a headspace issue or a firing pin spring, but it will dent primers, but doesn't ignite them all. Used several types of ammo and same on all. Good shooter though, when it does shoot.
