I am not a very good shot with a firearm over 50 yards even with a scoped rifle. But, I brought my Prohunter SBS chambered in 243 Winchester out to the range last Friday and at 100 yards, I could consistantly place a hit within an 8 inch circle. For me, groups within 1 inch are not realistic, but groups within an 8 inch circle is good enough for my type of hunting. With this rifle at two hundred yards, using a Simmons Aetec 3.8 to 12X scope, you can also achieve the same results with minor windage and elevation adjustments. This coming week, I intend to take my stainless steel Prohunter SBS chambered in 30-06 to the range and sight this in for 200 yards, and get ready for an Elk hunt in New Mexico. These are great rifles, especially if you break them in properly, and treat them well. Regards.
