So, last Tuesday at our range it was around 32*. Not super cold, but sitting outside and pulling triggers on the 50 yard section of our range did not seem that inviting. Instead I retired to our interior section with my 220 volt electric heater..............only problem is the eight benches do not face the 50 yard berm so I was relegated to shooting at 100 yards and beyond. It did not take more than a few rounds to get my 50 yard setting up to 100 yards. I was shooting Eley match ammo in two different lot numbers and also playing with a couple of different tuner settings on my Lilja barrel so the results were not as good as could be expected if I stuck with one good lot at a particular setting. Anyway, I shot a total of 18 five shot groups (wind was pretty cooperative as evidence by my daisy wheel's). My average group size was just a tad under .8" with my smallest group being .377". I was now about done when I saw my friend Frank (aka Herman on the board) shooting at a 3" steel target hanging at 200 yards. He was having some fun hitting it off and on so, I decided to give it a try. My 12x42 NF scope only has a tiny 1/8" or smaller? Dot on a fine crosswire so I had no stadia lines or dots for hold over. I picked some object on the berm above and eventually found a spot that would let me get close to the target. I then dialed my elevation and would up wacking that 3" steel three times in a row plus a lot close encounters. That was fun! So now I have a target with aiming points I designed for 200 yards and will see, group wise, what I can do! Unfortunately, we got a good deal of snow (for where I am in NC) and my two shooting partners have already decided not shoot this Tuesday so I will probably put it off until next week unless the weather gets better. Its has been nice taking a break from the Eargosplittinloudenboomers!
