PMP is manufactured by Pretoria Metal Pressings A Division of Denel (PTY) LTD, Republic Of South Africa.
I shot one group of three shots at 1.5" at 85 yards with this cartridge. I have never had a group so small. S&B gave me groups around 6-7 in at 85 yards. I only shot one group with the PMP before removing my scope. I was in the process of taking off my scope and removing my handguard (which was bumping my scope) and reinstalling my scope. I ran out of my 20 rounds of PMP before getting the scope sighted back in. I hope I can reproduce the 1.5" group. I have got to get more PMP.
I have a convenient pile of dead trees to tack a target to about 85 yards from my house. That is why I was shooting 85 yds instead of 50 or 100 yds.
I have a BSA 3-10X44 scope and it rubbed against the hardguard with the scope rings that came with the gun. I just got my new high scope rings today from cheaperthandirt. I installed them on my gun and put my scope back on but it is to dark to shoot. I'll have to sight it in tomorrow. Now I have a .25" clearance between the handguard and the scope!
I didn't know there were aftermarket handguards that were lower profile.
Tell me more about the integral rings. I have a ranch s/s/s/s but it did not come with the rings you describe. It had the stainless medium height scope rings. I didn't know there was a factory quick release scope mount. I thought all of the quick release stuff was after market. I just invested in the standard high ss scope rings.
