Saturday Range Report.

There were no surprises, fired 25 rounds of decent ammo at 50 yds. The impacts stayed under 5 inches. No two impacts were touching, group pattern was roundish. No reasonable trade offers for this barrel with be refused. Art

Part of the poor performance today may have resulted from shooting with the spindle off, didn't want to blow any barrel chips into the GC.. The GGG+ ammo runs on the hot side in my semi rilfes, the primers were flowing..

After cleaning, there are a couple of shinny spots that were not there before.. No tomato plants but lots of Okra..

Thanks again for the FPS info, plan to bump up that load to reach 2500 at least.. What experience do you have with Reloader 15 in the
M1A?

Mid 80's and little wind leaves me with no excuses. Art l..

Funny but true.

It works out in my behalf when the Range is crowded and no benches open, I pull into Pistol area get my pistol out and in mins. have my choice of any bench... Art

Your father never had

People gather behind him and make bets on which shot would shatter the target fram, or the Range Master limit him only to a 22 revolver at the 5 yard line..... Art
