Things I liked: Beautiful stock, solid, well crafted construction. Very accurate using everything from 75 grain to 190 grain bullets. I recommend .357 and .358 caliber, but it shoots my 126 grain .356 just fine. Very accurate. With only an inexpensive 4 x 30 scope I was easily able to put a group of five shots within a 1 inch diameter circle at 25 yards. 75 gr. est 900+ ft/sec. 190 gr. est 680 ft/sec. Nice rifle.

Things I would have changed: Packaging. Rear sight arrived broken because of poor packaging. Pyramyd kindly sent me the part, but Sam Yang needs to pack this rifle in styrofoam peanuts. The packaging rings they use suck and do not work. They fall off of the gun during shipping and the gun then gets banged around. $2 worth of peanuts would solve the problem.

What others should know: Best Sam Yang caliber for the power they have. Wide range of ammo that will keep you in the 700-1000 ft/sec range. Nielsen ammo is favored by this rifle in .358 caliber. The AV 190 gr. .358 performs well as do the Drill Dog 128 gr. .358 (actual measured weight is 132 gr.) Remember that the single tube is more powerful than the double tube and will throw a 400 grain bolt 50 ft/sec faster than the double tube. I do not recommend shooting below 160 bar if you want full power.

Things I liked: Great rifle , shoots very good.recommend this one to anyone wanting a big bore.357 cal. It's really nice in finish and bluing.

Things I would have changed: smoother trigger with a little less pull. and auto safety would be nice.

What others should know: Hits very hard, and does very well at 100yds , Just take your time to find what shoots best out of it. Great price for what you get.
