    Category: 1.) Unaltered Finnish sporters at least 35 years old; 2.) Scope of your choice; 3.) FMJ .30-06 ammo (M2 ball) at least 45 years old; 4.) From the bench at 200 yards (supported); 5.) Three shot groups at any standard target.

    Aw shucks, it looks like I win. :D

    OK, Ok! So I rigged the competition a little. I just felt like braggin' on my Sako Finnbear (circa 1965). I was shooting Yugo ball ammo with a 1958 headstamp and finetuning my scope zero. Holy cow! This stick can shoot!

    I haven't even gotten around to bedding the action yet.

    I'd like to join ya Wuzzagrunt, but I have a few problems with the rules......;)

    #1- I've yet to buy a rifle....(although I may have a Springfield M1A in a week or so)

    #2- it'll shoot .308, not .30-06......(but they are close)

    #3- the shooting range I belong to only has a 100 yard rifle range........(so I'd have to make them 6 shot groups to equal 3 shots at 200 yards)

    Can I still play.....?:D

    Welllllllllll, I thought it would be somewhat crass to just come out and say: "Look at what my reasonably priced, used rifle can do--neener, neener, neener! " :D

    But, that's what I was really thinking. ;)

    Hey, if ya got a standard sporter that can shoot .4 MOA (give or take), with M2 Ball, bring it on!
