Took this form another guy I know. This challenge is designed to test your skills as well as your equipment. I will keep up with the rankings as we go along. Please read and follow the rules or your entry may not count.
The Rules: ALL targets must be shot from 100 yards. 20 rounds will be scored, flyers included. The rifle can be shot from any position as long as the shooter is supporting the rifle. Bipods, slings, and rear bags are ok to use. NO bench rest, lead sleds, or machine rest may be used. All 20 rounds must be fired on the same day, from the same rifle. Iron Sights will fire two 10 shot groups at the reduced 600 yard NRA targets. Scoped rifles will fire two 10 shot groups at the target listed below (different targets are ok, just make sure both groups are on the same piece of paper) Iron sighted rifles and scoped rifles will be ranked separately.
Please have your post in this Order:
1) Picture of rifle and setup with description of rifle and ammo. 2) Picture of 100 yard range. 3) Picture of target (optics) or targets (irons) with 20 rounds through them. (place calipers or ruler laying over one group for reference) 4) For optics, list your group sizes and the average. For Iron sights, please list the group size and score.
1: Rifle: Barnes Precision BPM-15 with new BP 18" mid to replace the 16" I wore out. I took the A2 hider off of it and installed a BE Myers hider I had on my bench. Only other mod from stock is the Geissele SSA trigger.
Optic: Bushnell Elite Tactical 6-24x50mm G2 in LaRue mount that one of my guys bought recently and I have for testing right now
Ammo: I had 44 rounds of 69gn Nosler CC loaded over 24gn RL15 in Federal brass, lit by CCI BR-4. These were rounds I had left over from the first barrel I had on this gun. Never shot them before today in this barrel. They hit just low and left of where the 77gn bullets it's zeroed for hit. I will use the last 24 to zero the irons on the gun and shoot the iron sight target with a sling.
2: Old picture of the range, the berms have been shuffled; 100yds is now on left, 200yds in the middle, 300yds is far berm now.
Group 1: .820" or .783 MOA Group 2: .895 or .854 MOA Average: .858" or .819 MOA
