pshhhawwwwww! i guarantee you WA called the rest of the line cold while he shot that group, so the muzzle blast and loud bangs wouldnt mess him up.
had i been there, raining brass on his noggin, that woulda been like a 4 moa group.

What? Is that my former frienmd Spiff? He who abandoned me after I got booted from THR becasue Im not cool anymore...the guy that would rather fix water lines than go shooting with me.... Thought that sounded like him...

It was wierd shooting without having some guy blasting a Yugo mauser next to me screaming "get some, get some" while missing a 25 yard sillouhette

I'm splitting my time between there and here.

And to keep it on topic - my groups suck even with an accurate rifle. I'm guess I have to face it - I'm a mediocre shot at best.

5 shots 25-06 rem. Stock sendero fluted stainless, mis-read the wind on the one shot and pulled it high. I shot just as the wind died. 100 yards by the way.

Nice shooting!

Both of you: Wildalaska and Peter M! I'm glad I'm not a deer in your neck of the woods!

Good shooting there WA, and Peter.

WA, looks like those heavy matchkings are working out. I flirted with some A-Max but am going back to SMK.

If I turn in a target, all I've got to show is two fliers and some vertical stringing. Not great shooting, but I figuring this CZ out. I do like something about the target...



OBL Doesn't like Varget. I wonder if he likes RL15...

What I tried to do is duplicate the Hirtenberger match load which uses 190 MKs...

Sort of thinking of ditchin the swarovski and moving to a leupold...more modern...less euro trashy...
