"Please pass on my thanks to everyone at JP for building such a fine rifle"
I've just got back from a couple of days shooting in West Virginia to try out my new JP Grendel at 1000 yds and have to report back that the gun is a complete success. A friend suggested I stick with the 108 Scenar and use the maximum prescribed load of Ramshot Tac. Having broken the barrel in the week before I bore sighted the scope at 100 yds, and used JBM's online ballistic calculator to work out my ups. Saturday was function testing and sighting day. I started at 600 yards and was on paper immediately - at 600 yards we all know the Grendel is in its element - and as per JBM, a further 24 minutes of elevation got me on paper at 1000 yds. Yesterday I shot two strings of 10 at 1000 yds on TR type targets (x-ring 1 MOA, and the bull 2 MOA) and shot a 99/100 (2x), and a 98/100 (4x), with groups sizes of appx. 1.5 MOA. At 600 the gun shot a 99/100 (6x) - out of the 10 shots for score 6 bullets were in a 0.5 MOA group.
Please pass on my thanks to everyone at JP for building such a fine rifle.
