Very happy with it!







5x CCI Standard off the bipod at 50m, field conditions with a light sideways breeze. Reckon I pulled the top one. I suppose that will do for starters...

Looking good, nothing wrong with anything there... Keep the lead headed down range!

So glad you posted photos of your FDE stocked RPR. I have seen it advertised, but never realized it looked that good; really COOL!.........................

Love the FDE looks. The gray color looks sexy too.

Nice shooting btw. Not enough range reports these days.

Took my family out shooting on Saturday and my boy wanted to take his RPRr with a LW barrel and he was smacking rotten tomatoes and peaches at 65 yards consistently of a tripod. Hes got a turkey tag and wants to use his 22lr for it.

Figure if he can smack a small Tomatoe or peach at 65 no problem I will probably let him use his gun.

Thanks guys. I'm enjoying it.







I have shot numerous rabbits with it. Heavyish walkabout rifle but I don't mind that, and the heft and layout make it easy to hit with offhand/

Ok tacti-rimfire-nerds, in a break with tradition for these rifles, I've actually just put a smaller scope on mine to try.

It's a Vortex 2-7x35 Diamondback Rimfire. This scope had been on my PWS Summit doing not much lately so I thought I'd try a lower profile scope than the 4-12X40AO that had been on it.

I must say, I do like it and if it was a 3-9 it'd be even better. The rifle now looks and feels a bit sleeker.



Do you even mount a scope low, bro?





Probably won't be as good for paper punching but I don't do that anyway really nor do I plan on shooting things at extreme ranges. Just hunting bunnies and plinking to a bit past 100m at this point.
