Only asking because i had buddy that bought the 1500 with the Axiom stock (like Les Johnson use to run on PredatorQuest). it was 22" with 1:12 barrel..nice slick sexy lookin rig but would not group anything over a 52gr bullet...55gr VMAX would stay around 1.5"+\-. After a lot of trial and error (and bullets, brass & powder) we settled on 50gr VMAX and it was screaming...3500fps if i remember the speedometer correctly and print cloverleafs. I will says this...flat did the job with very little pelt damage....Just an FYI

Thanks man.
My buddy has the same gun but in a black / blue combo that he bought his daughter.
I am gonna go shoot it this coming week before I buy.

He has told me that it is a shooter though.
He also uses factory ammo.

We will see.

In a light weight walk around gun .222 22-250,.223, or a .243 will do the trick or any of this calibers in a heavy barrel varmit rig. Reloading is easy and cheaper if you shoot a lot. .22-250 had over 4000 rounds through it before the barrel was shot out. Yes I did hot rod several loads through it. Varget or IMR 4064 is good powders in it with 50 gr. or 55 gr. Ballistic tips. Shoot tacs @ 100 yds. all day long,Hit dimes at 200 yds., and critters out to 487 yds.Killed a deer with 50gr. at 200yds. with a neck shot. She hit the ground like a ton of bricks. .243 IMR 4064 and 55 gr. Ballistic tips lets just say SCREAMIN!!!! by the ole chrony. The load I had definitely was not for saving pelts but slamming critters to the ground. 223 50 gr. Ballistic tips. Triple duece have not reloaded for it yet but hopefully will get to soon.
