I lost all of my rifles & handguns in a mishap on Rio Grande when the barge hit a sandbar and sank.

Very nice shooting! - and it seems a quality rifle as well.
The group looks to be about 0.5 moa wide --- could some of that vertical be from the way the rifle rode the bench? Personally, I never could shoot as well off a bench as I could prone with a tight sling and a sand bag under my forearm hand...... But as I aged , sitting at a bench became a lot more comfortable....
Either way - great shooting!

I'm pretty sure the vertical string was mostly me. I had it slung very tight, sandbagged on the bench, and my heart beat was jumping the whole 2 inch square. Was doing my best, but I don't get much time behind the trigger. I live in the country, but don't have land, so it's an hour drive to the closest outdoor range, and they won't allow shooting in any other position but benched @ 100.

Thanks for all the kind words, everyone.

If that's a 200yd group that's awesome.
It was 100 yards I thought I put that in the info but I missed it. edited it to include.

Not bad at all - especially with a sling. The things that might be causing the stringing usually go away somewhat after a lot of trigger time as others have said.

Very nice looking rig. A friend just put that scope on his M1A.
