I went to my local walmart and needed a riffle for hunting, as my 16yo just inherted my 30.06 due to my not wanting to deal ith the kick. $277 plus tax and call. Pretty straight forward, call, backgroung check, the proscess took a little longer that i would have liked, but it is what it is. I bought 3 different boxes of .308, knowing some guns are fussy, I matched it with a 4x16 x40mm scope from walmart for $59.00, cleaned the gun, installed the scope, which has very wide mounts and doesnt leave a lot of play in the eye reliefe, but I made it work and off to the range. 78 degrees indoor range, no wind 50yards.
winchester 150 partioned 15.00 per box
First shot on paper, second second touching first shot, third a little off. (2 inches) adjusted the scope for verticle, 26 clicks adjusted the scope for horizontal, 31 clicks and waited mins for cool down.
Next group, remington 120 boat tails, partitioned 33.00 per box
first shot 3" high 2 inches to the left, next shot 2" away from that one and third missed the paper.
didnt shoot this ammo again.
back to winchester 150 partioned 15.00 per box
2" high dead on horzantal next touching first and same with the 3rd. the fourth flew due to barrel being too hot.
15 min break, cold barrel all 3 touched 4th 1 inch out..
I couldnt be happier than i am for what i spent. the trigger is heavy 6.5lbs pull, but my gunsmith will get that to 3.5 for $40.00. I would recomend this as a inexpensive riffle (notice i didnt say cheap) just keep in mind you will need a trigger job, and the rest is up to you
