      New Addition in 308

      I've had my eye out for a 308 to add to my collection and yesterday I was at Gander Mtn and they are having a Memorial Day (weekend) sale. They have new and used guns marked down, actually saw a few good buys. I had spotted this Thompson Center Icon several weeks ago but only glanced at it because it was used and they wanted $799 for it. Yesterday I noticed it had a sale tag and was marked down to $594. Not knowing that much about the gun I looked it over and it was really hard to tell it had ever been fired, went home and started some research. The sale ended today so I had to do some quick searching. Reading several reviews about how accurate the rifle was and seeing on Thompson's website that it was certified sub MOA @ 100yds, I decided to go back this morning. After another lookover and striking the deal, I ended up getting it for $594 with a box of American Eagle ammo (20 rnds) and an additional 5% off.

      Got it home and mounted a Bushnell scope, now to the range to see what she'll do.

      TC certainly means quality & accuracy. I've seen many a deer taken with that caliber.
      Nice find!

      Not too bad with bulk ammo off bags, 1.25" group. I bought some 168gr Sierra Matchkings to handload. The gun for sure shoots better than I can.
