Just before the assault gun ban I purchased a PSL from Lou (RIP). I had a trigger job done an installed a Belorussian mount and 9 power scope. I must have fire a hundred hand loads with any satisfied results. My best results was with corrosive Yugo 180 FMJ but it was inadvisable to shoot heavy...
This is a nice 1995 Ruger M-77 Mark II stainless steel in 223 Reminton.
Shot very little.
The scope is a Leupold 36x fixed and in 1995 dollars cost $999.
At 100 yards I use a piece of blank paper and with a marking pen place 1/4" dots as targets.
You won't require a spotting scope to see shot...
I haven't been to a gun show since 1997.
All my purchases were local or off this forum.
Reloading supplies are mainly from the Internet.
At 75 I no longer are interested in purchasing.
Focusing on selling rifles which I hate to do for I don't want the burden left with my bride.
