For those who haven't been following my thread, I recently acquired a mint condition used AW with a Schmidt & Bender PMII, 4-16.

I can't stop shooting the damn thing! This gun is just so nice, and after adding a little length of pull and remounting the scope to the rear of the two mounting positions on the dovetail, the gun fits me like a glove. I picked it up Friday 7/2/10, took it to the range Saturday, again on Sunday, and snuck in for a little shooting before work today (Monday.) Looks like my next order of ammo is coming in tomorrow, so I'll be able to make it to the range for a longer session on Wednesday.

I just love this gun so much, I wanted to thank everyone again for all the input in my threads asking for advice! I'm very glad I went this direction, now if I could only figure out how to stop shooting it before I go broke!

Lol, the good news is, getting a nice rifle like this is helping me be a better shooter in a hurry. I signed up for the online classes a few weeks back, and have been implementing lessons 1-6 thoroughly, which combined with a lot of practice and a nice firearm, is helping me make huge improvements in a hurry.

Thanks again everyone!

    81sfo- I have a friend who is going to help me with load development, and teach me how to reload. He's going to load me up a bunch of 168 & 175 SMK's to see what it likes, and in the mean time I am going to purchase what I need to start doing it on my own.

    For the time being though, it seems to shoot pretty well with FGMM and Hornady Match.
