I finally got the opportunity to take my RFB to the range today. We tried to go on Sunday, but that didn't work out as planned.
I went to Elverson Gun Club and if you know anything about that range...it's always windy there. I got to the club and noticed a decent amount of snow on the ground, but that did not stop me.
I brought along a very large piece of cardboard to help me sight in faster. I started at 50 yards. I got the rifle dialed in pretty quickly. I didn't take a ton of shots since I had other firearms to shoot as well...IE my Kel Tec PMR and STI Spartan pistols.
I did not replace my A2 FH with my PWS FSC30...I just ran out of time before I could install the FSC30...with the A2 FH...you could feel the recoil go straight back onto your shoulders. IMO, the recoil was very mild for a 308 semi.
I am looking forward to breaking in the rifle with more rounds very soon. I just need to reload some ammo...since I will only be shooting 168gr bullets with this rifle. The reason I am sticking with 168s is because my optic is calibrated for 168gr bullets.
RFB 18" with kydex cheekpiece (a must for RFB)
Burrs PEPR 30mm mount
Leatherwood CMR 1-4x optic
HSM 168gr ammo(only 168gr ammo I had on hand)
I was very pleased with the Leatherwood CMR. I normally do not buy low end optics, but I wanted to try out the CMR since it was calibrated for .223 and .308...the optic has a green illumination and for $250 is a very good bargain. I only shot out to 100 yards because I didn't want to walk into more snow, so 200+ yards will have to be for a future range day.
Overall, I was very impressed with how the RFB handled. At 100 yards, the best group I was able to get was hovering around 1MOA...I think that is great since I only had a 4x optic and I didn't buy the RFB thinking it was going to be a precision firearm. I think that 1MOA is really good for a handy SHTF firearm.
