Default 08 ASA Reaper

So I gave in to the hype got a NIW 08 asa reaper...Did well on the price as compared to most $320 shipped.

So I take this thing out of the wrapper and we put 200 or so BP swings on this thing with .44 375... And it feels like a LOG, the 07 Mutant my buddy just got was outperforming it in pop/distance easily. Anyone have experience with the reaper, does it have an extended break in period or what? One thing I did notice is that the sweet spot seems like it's in the same area as a velo toward the endcap...

The SS on the Reaper is NOT near the endcap. It's actually more towards the hands.

What weight? Any interest in letting it go just LMK
