I had a little fun at the range last night. Seven targets with a draw in 9.41 seconds. I've gotten into the 8's a couple times. Need to work on my first shot time. Shot with a Sig Sauer P239 in .40 cal.
Looks like a lot of fun Mike, are you reloading yet?
It may be time to start
Here's my paper puncher, the second pic is of the new scope, rings, and base.
Nice, a Tikka T3 Stainless Varmint topped with a SWAROVSKI
If I were to have a WAG, I would say 308
My wife "Big Al" and her first kill
I didn't know you competed Mike. That's cool. The boys and I really enjoy the competitive shooting. It is fairly cheap once you have your initial equipment. Some of the people there are really amazing. I shoot in the top 15%. Jake and Clay shoot in the top 25%. We generally have about 115 shooters. This is IDPA over in Jacksonville. Here is our crowd, a stage and pics of me and Clay.
Some day Scott, I will try some action pistol shooting but I have to stop playing with bolt guns. I regret selling my Kimber Classic back in the late 90's. At this point, I don't even own a handgun.
I need to find a good deer butcher in the Gatesville-Temple area. Mom doesn't like my butchering skills, and we've already agreed that I'm cooking the next deer that follows me home.
There is a ton of information out there on quartering and butchering game.
What sort of problem are you having?
I don't get it, Dave. There is nothing inconsistent with those shots. They are very good! What's wrong??
Scott, if those groups were consistent I would be ecstatic but consistent .2-.3 is probably unrealistic for a sporter weight bolt gun. I do try hard to find loads that will shoot consistent .5-.7 at 100 and then move on to longer ranges. I have been locked in on H4350 but started trying some other powder last weekend.
