Martin Rutterford has created another masterpiece! I have been talking with Martin about a TM1000 for some time now. I finally placed the order a few weeks ago, and Martin called to tell me that my rifle was ready. So, I picked up my rifle after work one day last week and took it straight to the range to begin testing. My rifle is sporting a grey laminate stock. It is a 12 fpe version that is set up for WFTF Division. I will also be getting one of Martin's nice adjustable knee risers to match the laminate stock. This is a truely awesome and complete Field Target rig! I mounted one of my Leupold Competition 35x scopes using B-Square Weaver to Dovetail adaptors, and Leupold Quick Release low mounts. The alignment was spot on for me, and I didn't have any adjustments, shimming or other tinkering to do to the scope. I initially set up paper targets at 15 and 25 yards. This was just to get a start with my scope. It only took a few shots to bring the pellets into one hole at 15 yards. So, I then moved on to 25 yards. Once again, with a little bit of minor adjusting, I had nice tight groups at 25 yards. I next measured out 50 yards and set up another paper target there. With an addition of 32 clicks from my zero point, the TM1000 was dropping pellets spot on. I shot a few groups that looked very good, then spent a few minutes really taking my time on a 5 shot group. I achieved a nice tight group which I posted a picture of below. I am planning to ad a target type of butt plate to the rifle soon. It will likely be something similar to, if not exactly like what I have on my EV-2. I like the way those target buttplates fit my shoulder when holding the rifle. So, I think that will be nice addition to the rifle. Now I have measured my scope height, entered all of my data into the computer and I have a complete ballistics chart for the scope. I hope to find time this weekend to go out and shoot all of the major yardages to verify or tweak my scope numbers. Once that is done, this beauty will be ready for the next Field Target match.
