Not bad, considering my old eyes. I didn't move the sights much at all. This was fired off my knees at 25 yards for rough sight in and included 150g Win factory, 160g LeverEvolution and 180g RN Handloads.
From there we went to shooting from the braced knees at 10" steel swingers at 75 yards. Mostly those were good solid hits and really moves the swinger around a bunch.
From there we fired both the Cougar and my sisters 336A short barrel rifle at the 16" 100 yard swinger. A bit harder, especially with Iron Sights compared to her scope (she got 6 of 6 at 100 yards) but I got 4 of 7 with irons!
As I thought, the action is still very tight. Reliability is 100% with snappy function of the lever in both directions. Right now, it still locks up tight enough that a good swift throw closed will assure proper function untill the bolt lock seats in perfectly with some more use. Every once in a while I'd baby this old gal and she'd misfire so it still needs a bit of time working the lever back and forth. I think this is best done at the range. In all, out of 100 shots today, she misfired two times because I didn't close her up just tight enough.
Heres todays quick target fired off braced knees and I wish yall could have been there to see that steel swing with nearly every single shot. Now my sister with her short barreled scoped 336A, she's gonna be one serious deer and hog killer at any range out to 150 yards I'm sure.
