Thanks for the help with the leader board. I also tried to shoot this with my SOCOM 16 but ran out of time and patience. The optic on my SOCOM has little magnification and I cannot pick out the dots. Also, I don't think it is as accurate as my M21.

Also, I started to shoot my Sako 300 Win Mag at one of these targets and I was 12-12 before I stopped also due to time. I know a bolt gun does not qualify but I still plan on doing full target shoot with my 300 Win Mag just for fun.

Thanks to all that help with these events. I really like them.

Thanks from nf1e and JEFFJP_N_JJ

Yep bolt rifles are a whole different animal.
The M14 is why this is called a challenge.

Rifle: M1A Loaded, EBR Chassis, Sadlak Mount, Mark 4 4.5-14x
Position: Shooting from bipod and rear bag
Ammo: Federal SMK GMM 175s
Score: 7-2

I was rushing it and the rifle started to drift a bit. The last 5 were hold overs (holding right 3/4") and the zero had shifted Since my last outing... This is a 2016 lot of ammo and I think it's shooting consistently different in a couple rifles so it could be the ammo. I'm probably done purchasing Match grade ammo. Got to reload if I'm going to really trust something.

Thanks from JEFFJP_N_JJ

Well, no target to post but I did make another attempt today. I think I mixed up two loads as the gun was either right on or consistently 1.5" high right. Less than 50% hits with these mixed loads so I will try again later this week with a new load. On the bright side I did "shoot the square" with my new load and it was successful so I know I have a good load and scope is true. More to come...

Still waiting for some of the tack driver all day long guys to join the fun. I guess they don't want to show us up. After all, it is only a hobby.

Awards Showcase

I took my M25 out for it's first run since dropping it in a JAE. Spent a lot of time on the chronograph. Squeezed out 11 or 12 hits, depending on if you want to count the bottom row, center target as a hit or not. The ring is just slightly disturbed at the outer edge...

I'll let you decide. Longest hits in a row:4






Date fired: 8/18/2016
Load data:
-168gr Nosler CC
-WCC NATO cases
-CCI-250 primers
-42.0 grains of IMR-4064
-COL: 2.812"

Tony.
