Blackhack! you did good. I bought a MKIIg last April and currently have a BSA Sweet22 6x20 or whatever it is... It will shoot 1/2 inch at 50 yards. Fed Auto Match is very good, as is Fed 510b or the CCi mini-mags. Keep you action screws torqued fairly light 16 in lb.s or so, experiment up or down a little, but don't pull them to tight - not over 20 or you will compress the screws into the wood. I put thin flat washers under my screw heads just to spread the pressure out a bit. I have not had to do much of anything to the trigger. I checked to see if it was at its lowest setting and I am pleased with the let off. I also free floated the barrel. I believe you will find a pad near the end of the forearm. Try it both ways and see which way makes your rifle happier. Have fun, keep us posted and get some pics up.

This was with Fed AutoMatch.

You will like your rifle. df
