    :dunno:. The rifle was around $800, and the scope was a hair over $400. The rest of the stuff I bought here and there over a couple of months and don't really remember. I'm a cheapskate so once I've figured out what the best value is for my purpose I do my best to forget the $.

    It shoots great... its the guy pulling the trigger that is the problem. :rofl: I shake like a fucking leaf.

    I usually shoot 4 shot groups... with Black Hills 168gr SMKs the best I've done at 100yds is about a .75" 3 shot with a flyer. I'm ordering a rear bag and hoping that will soak up some of my tremor and at least eliminate the flyers. Without strapping it into a bench sled it will be quite a while before I'm good enough to see what it can really do.

    I really haven't had much opportunity to shoot it, and @ $1.00-$1.50 per trigger pull I can't afford to shoot it as much as I'd like. I only have 80 rounds through it, probably 20 of that was just zeroing the scope since I replaced the ring inserts after the first trip out.

    Next time I go out I'll try to remember to take my camera

    Shit, .75" isn't too bad lol. Where in MI are you? I'm from Cleveland but went to Kettering U in Flint.

    For your photos, try using a darker background. It'll make all the black on your rifle brighter and easier to see detail.

    I'd be happy as hell with .75" if it was my average and not a fluke :bcr:

    I live up near Traverse City now. I went to college at U of M - Flint though, and had a handful of friends that went to Kettering back when it was still called GMI. :cool:

    I work with a bunch of GMI/Kettering grads and co-ops and if nothing else, we all have good stories to tell lol. Although... I co-oped near Bowling Green, OH and it sure was nice to be surrounded by so many dumb hot chicks at BGSU.

    Yeah, such a good school to be located in the fucking ghetto.

    Is Churchills Pub still in existence? I have a few good memories in there.

    Looks good! Does that have an AccuTrigger in it? I had a 10FP before they started putting these triggers and that was horrible. I put a Sharp Shooter trigger in at a little under a pound pull and the gun was a tack driver.

    .

    The DBM models were new for '07, and I think the Accutrigger is pretty much standard now on everything but their economy rifles.

    The accutrigger is neat, but from my experience I don't know that it's the best option for a "tactical" rifle.


    Good stuff though. They shoot really nice.

    You may look into getting one of these...Lighter than a bag, just as stable, and it goes wherever the gun goes.
