    Working pretty well for me. Got out with my FN-SPR bolt action, 20" chrome lined barrel topped with a Leupold MK 4 8.5-25. Shot off bipod. 10 rnds at 100 yds. Whatta Hobby!

    Shot these a few years ago with the spr at 100 yds. Was supposed to be only 1 shot per bad guy, but I got carried, as I usually do, away doing a demonstration shoot. If one headshot is good , 5 has to be better. Whatta Hobby!
