Not terrible, I`ve been shooting 150grn reloads, so trying these 180grn SP store bought Remingtons was a treat. Little heavier push, but that was it. The inertial recoil butt plate works beautifully, I could shoot it all day.
I didnt adjust the scope for these but shot POA. The first shot  at 1:00 was aiming dead center. The next 5 where shot at 6:00 center. the resulting group is 2.25"x1" maximun spread, well within the 10 ring of an SR target.
The shots in order as spied through my spotting glasses are 3:00 then top to bottom, holding the same POA as closely as possible, so stringing a bit, probably just me. All 6 shots shot inside of 3-4 minutes.
I had this rifle scoped a few yrs ago with a smith-less mount and the rocket nozzle flash hider. Average group at 100yrds was around 4" IIRC. So my conclusion with this rifle is the factory rocket nozzle may very well have affected group size.
The frigg`n thing is loud, louder than it was, ear plugs and noise cancelling muffs are a must. If the shot dosn`t kill the deer, the noise will....LOL

Going to the range today to shoot this rifle some more. Got 80 RP 180grn sp rounds from a friend last week.
More of a test for the inertial recoil pad I installed. Should be interesting.
I`ll report the results.

It is tough to find in old scopes. Lucky you found a good one.

The Weaver K2.5 on my FN M1950 is crystal clear and holds a perfect zero.

Love old Weaver scopes. They have that nice classic look to them. They work good as well.

 Yes I agree, the only draw back is the settings on this one is not very fine, 1/2 " per increment at 100yrd. but its a rock solid scope, the glass is very bright and clear which is tough to get in old scopes.

Excluding that one low shot in the 9 ring, that is quite good!  5 shot groups?  Looks like you have something here that should hold the 10 ring on the SR target.  Give it a go in the Virtual Match Forum. You might have to wait until spring for warmer weather.

What scope is that?  Looks familiar…

Ok time for the range report. Went out this morning, snow on the ground, stiff breeze right to left, and 30deg F. Targets right way up this time... LOL
 Static zero`d at 25yrds, peering down the bore and correcting the reticle, a few clicks up and to the right. Did the same a 100 yrds then fired 5 rounds(150grn Speer psp flat base)

 First pic is how I shot this, second shows patched first group, corrections then next group.

 Third shows patched second group, corrections then my last group, the shot in the 8 ring low I pulled, fingers were aching cold at that point so I packed it in.

 The patch at 2:00, 9 ring is not from this outing.

 Shows better potential than with irons that`s for sure. Smile
The scope is an old `70`s Weaver, K3-1 German #1(post cross hair)

The way it`s set up now, I could shoot it all day long, only a slight nudge to the shoulder, very uneventful.

Nice Range almost identical to our club in layout and operation. Though ours is a private club with member ship dues.
We have 2 archery ranges, 1 static and one 1 mile walk through, 50yrd pistol range, 50yrd rim fire range, 100yrd rifle only range, 13 station sporting clay's range, and 2 clay's ranges, one being Olympic class, that hosts regional events.

Oh gawd Rhode Island!
I had a customer in Rhode Island, we always got crap shipping stuff to her from NYC They wanted to know "what State Rhode Island was in".
The funny thing is she lived on an island in Rhode island!
Talk about confusion!

Her neighbor was her phone, the phone company gave them so much grief about running a phone line to an Island they simply shared a line (& a phone with its billing) to the house maybe 50 yds away which was on "mainland Rhode Island" they'd tell the caller to hold, or call back, & row from their pier to her pier maybe 20yds? & yell. Then they'd row her back to answer the phone!

Thanx, Its not hard to do this kind of work, you just need to think it through and proceed slowly.
 I generally make a stat sheet, what to do, how to go about it doing it step by step, mat`ls needed and tools check list. Then when I`m sure of the skill set required and I have everything gathered up, I`ll start.
And then I follow the procedure as I outlined it, checking ea box as the steps are completed. I rarely ever go willy nilly into a project, but it does happen from time to time.....Embarrassed
This project`s been on my to do list for almost 3 yrs now, it maybe too little too late.....

I did.
The rear pad area has no meat to drill and tap, that was the challenge. I made a piece to basically bring that area back to No4 Mk1 specs. Cut and fit,even the scalloped spot, no easy feat. Once fitted It was drilled and pinned in to hold it in place while I silver soldered it in. Being extremely cautious not to over heat it.
Its bore sighted as reference by Peter L, needed to be shimmed at the rear with 2 beer can shims to bring on target.
