I have once more run into a deal I could not refuse, and I am now the gardian of a Mossburg 100ATR in .308.
After mounting and boresighting the 6-24x scope on this bad boy I headed to the range with a box of Wally World Federal 150 gn.
I was on the paper plate after two shots and started dialing in at 100yds.
Looking through the scope I was not impressed. Then I remembered I was dialed up to 20x!
Out of the box with this crap ammo and no modifications or tuning I had the last three shots in a 2" group.
The adjustable trigger on this rifle is a real bonus. It starts at what I normally hope to obtain after several hours work, and it gets better as you shoot.
Now I an saddled with the tuning work. Glass bedding the action and developing a proper reload to match the rifle.
The action/stock has a really sloppy and unsupported fit. The stock is hollow and the two screws that hold the action in do not even have support pilliars. There is a metal tab at the front of the receiver that wobbles around in a slot in the plastic. I am pretty sure a good application of JB Weld in the right spots will close the groups nicely, along with some consistant ammo.
With a little work it will be as good as my 91/30 MN!
