Good Day - Scout Rifle

My friend Jason wanted to shoot at the range today, so we went after lunch and had a good day.

While we were there I brought out my Turkish, 8 X 57 mm Scout Rifle. It now wears a 2 X pistol scope. I was shooting my favorite load of 12.3 grs. of Alliant Unique , with the IDEAL, 323471, sized to .325 ". The bullet has my own .014 " thick AL gas checks.

I couldn't be happier with my rifle.

I fired the 1st 5 rounds in the group below :

Then Jason shot a group with 8 rounds :

After the above photos were taken, I had the bolt bent. I like my rifle very much ! ( By the way, I paid $60 for the rifle about 12 years ago )
