Where are all the shooting pics?

I just cleaned the barrel in my rifle and was hoping to take her out to shoot some this weekend as I bought me a new cronograph (thanks N1FE) and loaded up some new ammo to check... HOWEVER life and weather rules!

We are on a frost call tonight and this weekend so I will be out working all night so hopefully next weekend!

Anyone shot or have shot Hornady 168 Amaxes with 42.0 gr H4895? Just got a box of them to try against my 155's

Jeff

The driveway to my range has about 8" of virgin slush (snowed yesterday, raining now). I'm pretty sure I could get in, but not sure if I'd be able to leave.

Haven't tried H4895 at all, but accuracy wise, I'd be surprised if the 168 AMax's didn't shoot about the same as the 155.

Thanks from JEFFJP_N_JJ

I've tried the 168 AMax in my 1903 and 03A3 with good results. I used Varget, not 4895.

I would like to try that load in my 14.

Not much of a picture, but the snow is evident.

Thumbs up

OK - too freaking nasty to be shooting.

Can I recycle an old picture? I was very impressed with this one, in that I shot a total of 10 rounds from the bench. No sighters, no excuses! ( I am quite sure this was at 200 yards) A couple of years ago.


Thanks from tonyben and JEFFJP_N_JJ

Off the porch.

Very uncomfortable way to shoot as my rest hold the rifle way to high for the prone position. After 3 back surgeries this was difficult to say the least. Can't wait for a dry day to try it from a bench when I'm comfortable.

Last night -8 night before -12. Lots of snow, doubt I would get back out from the range.
