Thought I would share a couple of photos of my little thumper. The target photo is shot at 100 yards with the iron sights on the gun. Not bad shooting for my old ass eyes.
I don't doubt it's fun, I just think you give up too much of the .308's capabilities with such short barrels. Back in the day there weren't any viable options for hard hitting, short barrel rounds but there are several now.Then you would have hated my HK51, but it was fun to shoot. They're really not bad to shoot.
