The weathershield finish surpassed my expectations. I've been collecting \ shooting rifles for over four decades and "built" many custom rifles and Thompson products are five star! I've owned several Thompson rifles. This rifle has a 1:10 twist so it's not the standard 22-250 twist (1:12 or 1:14) but it does shoot!! I loaded some 40 grain Varmageddons to 4,100 fps today and in a 10 to 15 mph crosswind I still got groups under .4" at 150 yards off of my lead sled. By the time I'd seen this performance the winds were starting to gust over 25 mph so I left well enough alone. I'll be trying them at my sight-in distance of 200 yards as soon as the wind cooperates. IMHO....don't sell this rifle short if you're a reloader and you want a fantastic varmint rifle.
