Few pics of my M21 since I got it finished. This is where I hunt from. I have a couple deer stands back there, but I really dont need them, lol. You can also see my steel plates that I target shoot at. The one way in the back is my 800. Its 650 from where the rifle sits, so all I do is move back and it becomes 800 easily. There is also a creek that you can see running left/right. There are plenty of varmints to have fun with as well,lol.
I am envious; I would love to have that shooting range at my back door. You probably have no idea how much it sucks to have to load all your stuff and drive 45 min + to go to a range where the range officer is so anal that it ruins 30 min out of every hour of shooting.
Very nice set up, both the gun and range. I can't wait until Nightforce puts that reticle in the 2.5-10x32; the scope you have is just to large for my Scout. How do you like the Atlas bipod? I am considering buying one or maybe one of the Sinclair Tactical Bipods.
I love the atlas. I have one on my remington700 as well. Its got an Accuracy International stock and that Bipod is just the icing on the cake,lol.
I normally dont have the legs extended that much in these pics. But its the only way I can clear the log, so I deal with it. If I were gonna do some precision shooting, then Ill get more comfortable and lower the legs.
Beautiful range! I just picked up some new as500 steel yesterday for my set up. Hickok 45's range on youtube is my inspiration.
I read an evalution in the Sept edition of "Shotgun News" for the M-21. Their test rifle with a NF, Springfield 4th gen mount, and two batches of match ammo they averaged 1.5 moa at 100. Have you had similar results?
Yes my experience with my M21 is that it is an MOA rifle. It will do better, but I consider the average of every group I have shot. Some are better, some are worse. I shoot 168gn federal gold match in my M21 and my Remington 700. Both rifles seem to love it.
I'm totally envious!!!! Love your range :) Only had the chance to work my M21 out at 100 yards so far :( I have no doubt that your's will be in the 1 MOA range....if not now, soon. Mine is an older model (2002) that Glenn Nelson's shop has tuned, my first time out with it resulted in 1 MOA....figure it is capable of better, I just need more trigger time. I haven't tried many different loads, but have found that it seems to like the 175 grain Federal Premium Sierra Matchking 7.62x51.
