Rhyno's RRT



  • LXM2kac.jpg

    1st shot, cross hairs landed .5 m left and 1.3m high
    2nd shot 1.3 m left and 1 m high
    3rd shot 1.6 m left and 1.2 m high
    4th shot 0 left or right 1 m high (I re did my position between shots 3-4)
    5th shot was 1 m left and 2 m high

    Then I shot a 5 round group.



  • bout time! I thought you had quit shooting all together! :)



  • Well sometimes I get frustrated and take a break.

    And I lost my home range, and the other range needed some work (still needs some work)

    Anyways I can pile on some more excuses, but they won't matter this isn't going to fix Itself so nothing to do but do it.



  • No explanation needed. I was 100% joking. Glad you got a place to shoot again.



  • Don't feel bad....I just finished moving to a new house and went straight back to work overseas. Who knows when the next chance for me to go shoot will be. I shudder to think of what my target will look like!

    Anyone can get angry — that is easy — or give or spend money; but to do this to the right person, to the right extent, at the right time, with the right motive, and in the right way, that is not for everyone, nor is it easy.

  • 10 shots today. I removed the angled piece on my buttstock to test out a theory that it's causing some of my vertical movement.

    And it indeed made a change, crosshairs were all below my target after the shot today. It also reminded me how much I dislike shooting with a flat bottom buttstock as all adjustments had to be done with the bipod or rear bag pressure.

    They also still moved left, I tried playing with some cheek pressure but couldn't get anything repeatable there.

  • Wow it's been a month since I posted in here, a lot has prevented me from getting to the range, arguments with the land owner have been settled and I can go out to shoot again. Actually I could have done it at the beginning of the week but I burned my hand pretty good on some hot metal. It's healed up enough now to not be a bother.

    First I cleaned the barrel Before:

    after:

    Not sure what to make of this, Copper?

    The top two rows were a dot drill, didn't shoot it well (went from left to right then right to left) the barrel settled in after a few rounds and I made adjustments. Then I shot a 10 shot group, raising my bipod helped a bunch and I had a few shots where I stayed on target the whole time, had two pretty wild fliers when I didn't.

    Here's a video of the 10 shot group:

    Infortunately it will be awhile before I get out again as we started harvest Friday, and I only got the weekend off because the elevator wasn't open yet.



  • Nice!!!

    I like the camera!



  • It's kind of neat, I don't know why it flips everything and don't know how to fix it. But it's neat, can't wait for hunting season to use it.

    Money could have been spent better elsewhere but I've wanted to you with filming stuff for awhile.

    Also I know I had horrible position and should have rebuilt it instead of shifting around so much but I was just excited to be able to shoot again.



  • Good recoil management there @rhyno

    Thank you, took a little more squirming around then I like, but after I figured out to raise my whole rifle up it seemed to go quite well.

    Going to have to work on building my position right from the start, which I'll have plenty of time to do without shoot unfortunately.



  • Nice shooting, what have you done to remove muzzle jump?



  • Taking Orkans class helped tremendously, after that it's been trying to do what I learned.

    The first 10 shots did not look that good I was on average 2 mils high and 2 left after the shot. I was uncomfortable and there was tension and muscling going on. Raising my rifle put me in a more comfortable position that helped.

    But even with that if I hadn't done what Orkan has come up with in his zero force firing position than it probably wouldn't have worked out so well. I mean the rifle had a muzzle break on it before hand and that helped but I was able to improve upon it getting into a better position. A new adjustable stock helped put me in better position but that didn't fix it.



  • Little off topic and I apologize in advance but where are yal getting the targets? I see they are from primal rights (orkan) but are they a download or purchased target.



  • @rhyno

    Did you attend the one last weekend?

    That thread has links to download the targets.

  • @gash @dddoo7
    Thanks



  • @martino1 no I attended the one earlier this spring.



  • LSrnoO7.jpg
    Well that's annoying.



  • @rhyno

    What is that? Looks like a 45 acp stuck sideways in the chamber.



  • Lol close.

    It's a separated case. Luckily it all came out.

    I have a feeling like this was a case that saw the higher end of the pressure ladder back when I did that.



  • Before the case split I was shooting like crap anyways.

    I was all over. I was trying to make small adjustments to figure out what was going on before starting new on the next ten when the case split.



  • e9S4Ozh.jpg

    Rainy weekend and week so far, that means little work and some range time I guess.

  • Excuse the newbie question but, "what the heck is a 'RRT?'" Can't figure out the acronym.

    Yep. Range report thread. Get out and shoot. Start yourself a thread. Post pics and some details of the day. The. You can track your progress over time. Many of us started out shooting every day and it is very revealing to see the good days and bad (post them both). It is helpful to see what others are struggling with and what their solution finally is. We just recently divided up into individual threads for each person...but March will Mark 2 years since we started and you will see drastic improvement in every one of the people that shoot regularly. So get you a RRT started!

    Thanks for the replies fellas. Perfect timing. I'm just about to sight in a new rifle I just had built. So, it'll be a great gun to start with. It's literally only had 10 rounds down the pipe by the gunsmith. As soon as I have a chance to get some shooting time, I'll start one. Looking forward to getting to know y'all! 👍



  • Well we have about two weeks left for harvest if everything holds out.

    Got off early today m, perfect shooting weather went home grabbed my gear to dope my new hunting load and the wind picked up to 20mph or so.

    Oh well just through the chronograph on so I can at least get some ballistic sheets printed off to try for next time.

    Not too bad. Don’t know why people think they need a chrono to do load dev.

    And that’s with a powder and bullet combination there’s no information on (that I could find)



  • @rhyno not to shabby. What powder bullet combo is that



  • 260 Remington
    140 Berger HVLD
    RL23

    I don’t have any of the load data around me at the moment, for details.



  • Here's that load;
    https://www.gunhive.com/load-data/59d27e66cd0b33af1d8b4567/
    I didn't know for sure if I had put it in or not, going to have to update with speed now.



  • I love my 260, I just need to find a load that is up at those speeds.



  • Went to the range today to try and get things ready for Hunting, actually had a little more time then I thought, which wasn’t a good thing because it meant the Combine went down and now I’m not sure we’ll finish for the first weekend. Oh well, there’s the second weekend.

    Zeroed in and noticed something that I would not have noticed a year ago, (now I’m sure a couple of people have heard this many times but) Vortex PSTs or at the very least mine, sucks. The elevation seems to track true enough, but if I dial windage it usually causes an elevation shift on the first shot after windage adjustment, then settles back in

    First target:
    2eQjfZy.jpg

    Upper left was the first zero, and where I first noticed it. Then I went back to 200 and 300 to check what the ballistic calculator said, the 200 yard group is the center, the 300 yard Group is below

    ZBTZUe5.jpg

    Wow where did all that windage come from? Anyone want to guess? It wasn’t wind. I figured it out after shooting the second 200 yard group of 3. I was at a loss for a little bit, and thought about trying to get a hold of Greg, but then I went through everything mentally and figured it out. (I lost the target I figured it out on though no picture)

    And with that figured out I went back to 550 yards, after getting hits on steel I shot a target to see where it was, and put this nice little group on it, measured 1.557” (only three round group) and low and to the left.

    pu6PJ9k.jpg

    At this point I was trying to figure out why the Ballistic calculator was off, and decided I would chronograph it so I went to the 100 yard bench and shot the group in the upper left over a cheap chronograph. That group is 4 shots, and I was in a weird position, the bench was similar to this:
    a6b40e3e9906d6fbe2c5cafc4f4ef931--shooting-bench-plans-shooting-table.jpg

    So in order to square up to the rifle I was on my left knee and standing on my right leg and as straight behind everything as I could and somehow managed that group in the upper left.

    I went back later and chronographed with the magneto speed and it showed my velocity was right where I measured before, that cheap one was about 60FPS faster. And the paper seems to confirm that it looks like it was .2 mil low (doing the math I can’t see much at that distance with that scope) and adding .2 mil would have put me in line with the calculations.

    Anyways pretty good day, minus scope frustrations.
