    What type of groups are most of you getting
    Out of the rifles ? What is the average price running on them.
    Thank you in advance.

    Welcome to the boards.

    Did you get a chance to do the newly acquired gun routine yet ? Strip it thoroughly clean it inside and out clean the scope base screw threads and screw holes with carb cleaner and put blue lock tight on the scope base screws reassemble the the whole thing and slick it up with your choice of lube ?

    My answer to your question groups is it depends on the ammo I'm shooting.
    Match ammo and premium varmint stuff mine rips right in there under an inch at a hundred outside to outside.
    FMJ Ball ammo anywhere from 2 1/2 to 4 inches center to center. Ball ammo is made for economy in bulk and what you save at the register you pay for at point of impact.

    By me new ones fetch between $550 and $600 before tax.

    Mine was 650 when I got it (24" varmint model) just after they came out. They're decent rifles. Most of them will turn in MOA or better groups with decent off the shelf ammo, more likely with match ammo. I had decent results with M193 spec. M855 shot well enough but nothing to be super proud of. Made tiny groups with my match handloads until recently. I've burned the throat out on mine already. Shooting it hot and shooting bimetal bullets cut a lot of life from it. I've got a new barrel coming. Shoot good quality ammo. I use mine as a match rifle shooting long range precision rifle matches.

    Enjoy your rifle. Get out and shoot!

    Welcome! I have a 16.5" Patrol that I haven"t shot yet, so don't know. Based on my 7.62 Patrol, it should shoot well but every rifle is different. Time will tell but I'm hoping to get 3/8" groups out of it at 100 yards with match like I do on the 7.62. Same barrel profile (medium bull) but with no muzzle device.

    EDIT: It does have a rather nice 11 degree crown though.

    Thank for the reply took it out Sunday no scope just to let my boys pull the trigger see how they like it.
    The best thing was I only paid 140$ brand new. It was on clearance at work.
