The wonderful little truck dropped this off at 8:45 this morning. I have some cleanup to do but I don't think I mind too much.:D

Very nice! I just got mine this week, too. Have fun cleaning that sucker out. I spent a few hours earlier this week de-gunking mine. Comsoline is nasty stuff when it comes to removal. Sure does a good job protecting metal, though.

What grade is she?

Service grade.
Here's the target from this weekend.
After about 10 rounds of trying to find the paper, here's two en blocs with the final setting. ~9 clicks up on the elevation and centered on the windage. Probably can drop the elevation 1 or 2 clicks to better center the group.

100 yards, off sand bags, HXP '69 & '73. Target was mounted upside down for no apparent reason.

1st shot is the little 1/4 moon at the top of the paper, OOPS!
There's a little Polish Trainer 22LR WZ48 at the bottom to ignore.
