Great weather to shoot little groups today. I took my Daughters Browning X-Bolt Micro Midas in 7mm08 and I also brought along my Fairbanks Custom 6.5 Creedmoor. I might as well take it hunting too. I really love this gun.

I see that you went to Garland public range. I like it there. Especially during the week where you don't have AR concussions from your neighbors.

I'm not familiar with Fairbanks Custom guns. Do you mind sharing some info?

So the Browning shooting factory loads shoots tighter groups than your custom?

The 6.5 Creed would probably shoot tighter groups with a Vortex scope on it! bolt
