The one in the pic is a 2x leupold eer, but I have since put a 4 x 12 x 40 rifle scope on it as a test subject to see if I can get use to shooting with minimum eye relief, after 100 rounds so far so good, and I'm out to 200yds.. 2x is just not enough for anything woodchuck size much over 100 yds.
Coyote, he laughed at it till I squeezed the trigger,, and the yotes around here won't like it either come fall when the season opens back up..

Ok, Gun Stats: It is a straight factory Savage striker 516 in .308win, barrel length is approx.14 inches including the muzzle brake, right port left bolt action with a center grip stock, thats what makes it look "cool". At present I am working on a couple loads for it , one using sierra 110 varminter bullets and another with 150 BTSP gamekings. Have found a load for each that groups around 1/2 to just under an inch at 100yds so now I'm tweaking the seating depth to see if things tighten up a bit more. I added the bi-pod which along with the brake really tames the recoil and allows the use of a rifle scope, just need to make sure you draw your head back before you touch off,takes a bit of getting use to but the optics in a similarly priced rifle scope are so much better and the leoupold pistol scope or any pistol scope for that matter. Also the amount of elev. and windage adjustment is very limited in a pistol scope. If you way good info on specialty pistols go to www.specialitypistols.com lots of good stuff and great people.
