Thats awesome! Lets us know how it shoots when you get around to it.

I'm willing to die trying to keep them; Are you willing to die trying to take them?

Re: My New Long Range Boom Stick

ya i had a previous medical condition that i just had to recently get surgery to get my health squared away i been really getting the itch looking at this thing.

ill probably wear the barrel out from cleaning it so much after only being able to look at it for a few months.

Re: My New Long Range Boom Stick

Thats a great cartridge and scope. I have two NF 12-42 BR's on long range groundhog match guns. I don't have a Stiller, but have heard good things about it. You need to get involved with the groundhog matches. At Shippensburg, we shoot out to 500 meters; and our range has a backer at 800 yds. Give me a shout for further info.
