Just got through loading up and shooting 30gr of RE7 behind a 120gr NBT. Adjusted sights and then put 3 shots into about an inch @100 through the little model 7. Then let my boy shoot. He loved it, put him up 2 horse apples at 100 yards and he drilled em both. Youth hunt coming up next weekend, Ill post you some pics of the results....hopefully!


Thanks again Seafire
