April Range Report Thread



  • 6/10 at 600 on a clean barrel. It walked around for the first few and then settled in to be consistent.

  • Don't know how many shots today. Seems my ole Daisy's trigger is plum wore out. Time for a new 880 or a trigger and bolt repair. All lefty, every day. Seems to be getting a bit more natural.

  • Parts to fix the trigger cost more than a new one. New 880 zeroing scope today. Have to wait and see if it all settles in. Trigger 100% better....:smile:

  • some range time today. Broke out the 300wsm bench gun. Tricky wind and lack of patience hurt me.
    2MLDkig.jpg
    9 in the center, wind change 3 high, one left and low and one low. 14 shots 400 yards.



  • I only had 15 rounds left in the box...so no sighters. Still shot a 1025...so not too bad.

  • @dddoo7 did you by chance have about a 8mph 3:00 wind?



  • @orkan

    Wind was blowing some...but I was in too big of a hurry to check direction. Shame on me. I will bet you are right though.

    I had to hold left...but I have been doing that for the last several targets. I need to adjust zero...but seems like every time I do it changes back to where it was. I struggle with chasing the wind.



  • 10 shots; new Rifle shoots real good when the rear support (me) isn't wobbling:laughing:

  • It is so satisfying to KNOW that when the trigger is squeezed an animal is going to drop. This is the application of all the "rimfire challenges".

    I also shot one at about 65 yards...but didn't retrieve it. This one was just shy of 50.

  • I made it out to the range today, been so busy with work and the weather has been utter crap.

    Shot the 40x terribly, also did some pistol work.

    I need to do more of this, I'm terrible with pistols.

    Also, the m&p seems well designed, ergonomically it agrees with me, but I have no idea why they put texture on the underside of the trigger guard it eats my middle finger raw.

    I need lots of practice with pistol, as you can see with the target my miss is left, and usually up but it was low today for some reason.



  • Shoot two groups today, all aiming at the center diamond first 3 rem corelokt next 3 federal fusion, need more practise I still can't manage recoil and allways lose the target after the shot.

  • I left my 40x loaded (not chambered) yesterday after shooting starlings. Today I pulled it out and noticed a fine powder on the center x bullet. I am pretty sure that burnt powder from the center x is collecting in the suppressor and then falling down the barrel when I put it back in the safe. I know I need to clean the suppressor as I am getting way too many fliers that I know are not me. When I took the suppressor off I could bump it on my hand and powder fell out. I think I'm gonna clean the suppressor and then store the rifle with suppressor off for a while. That powder can't be good for the barrel or the cold bore shot.

  • Easy way to tell for sure @dddoo7... take the suppressor off and shoot it like that for a bit.



  • That is true.



  • 14 shots, last shot only one hitting a hair left of POA. All me:unamused: ...frustrated...tomorrow is another day...think I need a range day real bad.

  • We had a very calm evening. I hit 5/5 at 600 on the 2/3 torso. 3/5 hit the 6" center plate. The first shot was on the left side of the plate...adjusted scope. Hit 6" plate twice. Missed the 6" plate on the 4th shot because the whole thing was swinging side to side. I have to change how it is hanging. Then the last shot hit the 6" plate too.

    I also heard a gobbler gobble when right after I fired the first shot.

    Really like my 6br 1-14 twist, with 68 grain Barts Ultra. Allin all not a bad day at the range. Trying to get in as much range time possible before class.



  • 1st range day in a while; 11 shots, first 4 was me getting set up. Shooting lefty is still awkward.
