    First time I got to the outdoor range to site this gun in. Also first time using this scope (Vortex 2.5-10x 32mm). Love both!!

    There's something about this Sig that just makes it enjoyable to shoot. Pic is @ 100 yds using a bipod up front. Not sniper material, but I was very happy with this setup out of the box. I'm convinced I'll be able to hone things in with a couple more trips.

    I bet with some practice you will be putting them all inside that orange ring

    Very nice shooting. Especially at that distance.

    Thanks guys. I went with a Marine friend of mine, and he really liked the gun. We started to compare it to his bolt .308, but his scope was knocked out of site, and we ran out of time. Looking forward to some more range time.......

    I just got my 716 sighted in good. Bought it a few weeks ago. I'm not a very good shot but at 100 yards I was putting most of the shots inside of a 2" circle. I tried shooting some shotgun shells off a log at 100 yds. I hit about half of them. Still need to dial in the reflex sight on top of my scope for close range. I wasn't expecting quite so much recoil since I'm used to a AR-15. I was flinching too much during my first 2 visits to the range.

    Exactly, Sig is fun to shoot with. And for your shots, you need a little more practice, you'll be good to go.
