Finally, this would be that day. When I uncased the rifle, the other shooters and I took bets on how it would group at 100 yards. Competitive shooter and gunsmith John Blauvelt, who'd seen some good 100s, guessed it would do pretty well. Our own David E. Petzal, who'd seen many bad 100s, figured it would stink up the place. And I, trying to manage expectations, bet on 3-inch groups, telling myself I'd be happy with anything under that.
