Target...Trijicon



Just could not get the Xs. I added a Trijicon TA01 to my Colt HBar.....now that Service rifles are allowed optics. Tough to get a good cheek weld. Shot twenty rounds. The other target....not so good.
100 yards. Prone.
Pete
PS: I notice on this target, and others that I have shot, that I favor the left....eight of the ten shots are on the left side of the 12 to 6 line.
Body position? Head? Position of the stock?

Well, 100-0 still beats 99-9x.
I mounted my A4 with a Vortex Viper 1-4, Yankee Hill riser with medium Leopold rings. That combination allows the same head position I had when using the A2 receiver. Nose on the charge handle. I found head position seems harder to maintain with the scope. Iron sight apertures, being small, guide the eye better to center then the larger scope ocular. A suggestion I'm trying is to put a 1/4 inch hole in a front scope cover. It is supposed to reduce potential parallax errors. Still experimenting.
