Well, I finally got a chance to shoot some squirrels with the GA Precision .223 Ackley I got back in July.The folks I shoot with believe that a rifle isn't properly broken in until you get some blood on it.My first kill was about 140 yards,Berger 55 gr. varmint bullet, 3475 fps,formed case.My longest kill was about 300 yards.
