    Testing a budget TCC 308

    Not sure if Ive managed to upload the correct puc from my phone.
    If not, I will edit this post.
    This 0.455moa three shot group @ 100m was shot with Brand new Thompson TC Compass fited with Tasco 3-9 scope. The rifle was bought from Taupo H&F yesterday morning. (I have been assisting a young friend into his first rifle). He also received a complimentary box of Remington 150gn Corlokt. I checked all screw torques before mounting the Tasco scope . We had access to a local farm range where we bore sighted, adjusted then fired the third forth and fifth shots as a group. We swabbed the barrel with Collings 90 after each shot and dried then allowed the barrel to cool.
    We then went on to run a ladder test using 150gn SGKs and with a medium load achieved a five shot group of .449 moa.
    I have used some very good rifles over more than fifty years and must admit to this being the best budget priced setup I have ever come across.
    Naturally, the new owner is justifiably pleased and now looking to find his first deer

    You would have to be happy with that rifle it sure can shoot well.

    My boss has one in 223.

    For a cheaper rifle man can it shoot!

    Nicely done there and good luck to the young fella!
