Yea I can't see why the rifle wouldn't be ok, just because it's not used by the masses. I've seen some very impressive groups at 55yds from a hw100 also not a popular ft choice. The scope is more important.
When I was 5 I wanted to be like George Best
At 10 I wanted to be Nigel Mansell
At 40 I wanted to be like Tiger Woods
At 50 I want to be like Gilly
Just shows how life can kick you in the nads
