    Only had time time to get the 1X-4X Leupold Turkey Scope close to zero at 25 yards and then squeeze off 3 rounds at 100 yards from a fouled warm barrel on a wobbly rest at a less than optimal target with reduced recoil factory loads.

    I am very pleased. After I lock tight the ring screws I hope to shoot from a proper rest at a relaxed pace and see how well this puppy will shoot.

    My Pre-64 Model 70 f'wt in .243 was my favorite deer/turkey rifle. Always carried loads for both and knew exactly where the turkey load hit relative to the deer load. For deer it was the 95 Nosler partition in front of 44gr 4831. For turkey the 90 gr Speer fmj and 21 gr SR4759.
