Dot drill challenge



  • Give this a try fellas. I gave myself 30 seconds to shoot a 20-dot drill with my 300BLK. The wind made it real rough on me. It seemed like every time a gust would hit, I was 1 millionth of a second away from breaking the shot. It was oddly... stressful!

    Then, because it's a 300BLK and because I can... I continued to fire 30 more rounds into one group. (which I forgot to get a picture of)

    When I walked down to the target I found a 175SMK laying on the berm.

  • 20 rounds of 300Blackout in 30 seconds - shit, you were sending the next shot before the last one had landed.

    I'll try it in 60 seconds with a mag change. :)



  • Yeah, pretty much as soon as the shot broke, I was moving the rifle and my brain to the next dot. I didn't wait for visual confirmation. It was really fun. I rushed through the middle, and it shows. The only way I made it through was making sure I was busy setting npa while I was cycling the bolt.
    ... and just to be clear, I had a mag change in the middle. ;)

    Also, I was timing myself on the phone, so I'm going on that 30 seconds +/- 5 seconds dicking with the phone.



  • yep. Trying this.



  • did my first one over the weekend

    I Pulled more than i would of like but its a starting point. I love this target.

    The bottom left hole is from a guy that was trying to sight in his rifle at a target 2 feet away. Wow was he off.

  • Would it be faster to shoot vertical columns instead of rows to avoid 20 changes of NPOA?
    Only 4 shooting columns of 5 dots.

    I do it like that at times and it seems to work out if you are shooting the rows vertically as you will have only 4 horizontal changes.
    Shooting it as it is laid out and going horizontal on the rows is slower but forces those slight NPA and body position changes which seem to contribute to the learning curve.



  • Yes, shooting it horizontally will have the most benefit.
