Taking a break from the EBRs at the range. '95 SRC

First time out with the '95 SRC, .30-06 and a couple .357s. My other '95 carbine shoots very well with Sierra 125 gr. Game King bullets, took my first deer with that combination. The new one shoots about 8' low and groups around 6" at 50 yds. It does shoot just about dead on and capable of some very...
