Cocking this beast is a chore, unless you know the trick. Hold it to your hip barrel out, tap it mid barrel firmly, and this will 'open' the breech. Spin the gun upside down, and place the shoulder pad on your thigh. Pull the barrel towards you. This is the only way I found to arm it without my arm giving out in 3 shots. LOL This is to be expected of a gun of this caliber though.
It sighted in 3 shots at 25 yards, and holds a group the size of a quarter at that range. Using the mil-dots on the scope, I was able to reach out and humanely down a prairie dog at over 80 yards.
I am very impressed. It is heavy though, but the real wood stock, Nitro-Piston, and rock solid construction are the reason.
