Recently I got a. 308 with synthetic stock. I mounted a Vortex 4x12x44 scope. Next I loaded 60 rounds full length sized loads. I used the same middle of the road loading that is very reliable in 3 other .308s that I load for. My first trip to the range with the new Patriot was very impressive and 100% enjoyable. I quickly boresighted and in just 3 rounds was very near zero. I quickly shifted to 200 yards. After final zero I settled in to shooting very nice groups. The function of gun, scope and ammo was absolutely rock solid. I look forward to more range time and time afield with my latest Patriot. I rotated it and another rifle to allow barrel cooling. After the 60 rounds were gone I wished I had brought along more. Very comfortable off the sandbags and very little muzzle jump. 100 percent happy with my Patriots.
