I took my Apex to the indoor range yesterday to bore sight it and run a few rounds through it. The load that I shot was 200 gr SST light blue sabot and federal 209A primer. A duplex load of 10/50 SR4759, H4198. This is going to be the first load that I try when I get to put some down range. I think the gun will shoot better than I did as I was never able to settle in on the bench and I only shot the gun at 25 yds. At least it didn't sling um all over the paper. Here are a few pics of my gun and the group I shot.

A great big THANK YOU to ALL the guys on this site that have helped guide me thru this journey. I never could figure out how people could get so caught up in fooling with these Smokless ML. Well I still don't understand how these gun become so addictive but I have now become one of the poor junkies. I am hoping to build a few more of these apex rifles for my Grandsons. I will post some more pics when I get a chance to air this gun out at some distance.

Looks like you got a good start! Can't wait to see your results at 100. I think I've seen some are using your load but 7/53 with good results.

I'll bet your ready to head out to 100. Just as soon as the temps get in the tolerable range. Go looking gun, the fluted barrel adds style.
