I love the .300Blk! Less than 1" groups at 100 yds if I do my part. Dropped a 6pt last season at 160 yards with it - DRT (upper part of Michigan where regular rifles are allowed).

On my wheeler scale and by my finger, the trigger only goes down to 4 lbs. I need some help with this. I would like to get down to 3 lbs.

I see I'm late to the party. Ruger adopting the 450B is big. Can't wait to see where it goes!

Received mine the other day. Fitted a Nikon 3-9X40 on Burris low Zee rings. Going to sight in with factory Hornady ammo and see how it groups, then start working up loads with H110 and Hornady 225 and 250 grain FTX bullets.

Hey, mwalters, which scope is that? That adjustable objective will come in handy for close-in shots. I seem to be getting up to an inch in either direction (2" total spread) of parallax error at 50 yards with my setup. :(

It is a Mueller 4-16x50 Tactical. It does have the AO or parallax adjustment. Got it at Optics Planet. I actually have 3 of these! I need lots of magnification with my old eys :shock:
