    Rifle: Marlin XL-7 30-06
    Scope: Bushnell Banner 4X12X40
    Distance: 250 yds
    Ammunition: Winchester Ballistic Silvertip 150 grain

    Took the poor man's rifle out back to the field. Measured off 250 yards and popped off a quick 3 after I got the cows and horses out of the way. Took the pics with my phone, maybe the quality will be good enough. If not, the measurement from A-B is 1 5/8". B-C is 2 1/4". and A-C is 1 1/4". I was actually trying to aim at the top of the box, which is about 8" to the center lines.I figure it's a pretty decent starter rifle for having about 400 bucks invested in to it, it will accomplish what I need it for anyways. Also, was in the prone position using bipod. Oh and yes that is me in the pic...:rolleyes:

    Lots of good things to be heard about the Marlin XL-7's. Nice report. Btw, what measuring software are you using? Looks like it could be an early version of the one Tango uses. :D

    That will drop any game at that distance all day right there. :D
