Jared aren't you just using your phone? You have android, when you go to post a message there's an attachment button. You just have to use a pic from your phone and it should upload.

Well the new barrel groups at .524 at 100 yards. Its groups at 300 yards was 2.368. Thats the best groups of 5 shots. Average size: 100-.567, 300-2.865. So i think i have done a very good job on the rifle
