Finally was able to get the Thumper out to the range yesterday. I was really impressed with the accuracy. Probably the most accurate rifle I own. AND it makes huge holes in the target!
Very first shots out of the upper at 50 yards - didn't even clean it first! After shot 1, adjusted the scope down and to the right. After shot 2, adjusted scope to the right more - a little too much, but I wanted to get a 3 shot group.
After making some more adjustments for windage to the left, and calculating to hit 2.5" high at 100yds. I was starting to anticipate the recoil, so I'm sure the rifle is capable of even tighter groups at 100yds. This is a different target and the paper was a little bit away from the cardboard - that's why the holes are ragged.
I shot the rest of that box of Hornadays, and boy is my shoulder sore today!
