What are you mainly using it for if you don’t mind me asking? And which magazines would you recommend (AICS pattern I presume)?
Very tidy.

Sunny coast,
I normally shoot only in the cooler months late March to late October, with my job I can take a week day off and have the range to myself most of the time. Have you heard of ‘Steel Varmint’ shooting ? It’s across between benchrest and silhouette. I just purchased some 6” & 4” round steel targets and will give this ago when i’m at the range shooting 200-500m. No one at my club interested just me.

That said,there is a f-class match held on the next range so I might give that a go with 300-600m match. Thinking about changing scope to vortex 10-60 Golden Eagle.

Currently using Sierra 69gr HPBT, gunsmith made up a dumbing round 5thou off lands to help me judge depth when reloading.

Yes use AI mags, no dramas with them.
