today I got started a little after daylight, I knew it would be windy with a cold front coming through last night.
I got to shoot at my friends range and its pretty nice to get to shoot to 400 If I want.
I started at 100 with IMR-4198 @ 76 grns/ no wad. I should have shot a fouler first but it is what it is
I then shot one group at 200 with the same load.
next I went to 300 and fired one sighter to see where to hold and fired 5 shots.
next up was H-4198/ 300 be that I shot last week with a .030 wad, I guessed at the hash mark and got it close. note; scope adjustments were made between groups.
I fired 6 shots because that's all the 300s I had sized, the wind was starting to pick up with no set direction, just swirling around.
up next was the 325 MHs with 71 grns IMR-4198 and no wad, they stunk pretty bad for whatever reason??? 1-3 were not bad but 4 &5 ??
I had 5 275s left so I decided to try them with H-4198 and a wad, I used the wrong hash mark on shot one, I used number 5 instead of 4, I then went to mark #4 and shot the last 4. 2-4 were pretty tight but #5 spoiled it
as you can see I didn't set the world on fire but I got to play with the scope some and got a better Idea of what to use at the shoot, maybe??
One note of interest is the new US Optics pic rail level I put on the rail, I really like it. I can see it with my left eye while keeping my right on the target.
On the last group I forgot to level on shot number 4 and as a result it went right, I noticed that I routinely cant my gun for some reason. that tells me If I can make it a habit to look at the level first it will help my shooting.
next time out it will be wearing a Jewell set at about 1 lb, I noticed today that when I wanted the gun to go off I still had to squeeze harder, it still has the factory trigger at 2lb..
