300 WSM at 5.5 lbs. Fired 8 rounds. I am an older guy and this is too much for me. I need the 243 WIN. It did group very tight but by the eigth round I was flinching. Never been in the woods. Mounted a scope and shot in my yard. For an extra $40, I will throw in Leupold duel dovetail bases and rings. I have 1 inch and 30MM rings. That is about half the price. No trades.
