Not to worry. 200 and 300 go a different direction to the left.

Time to try out all those builds you been working on, looking forward to hearing about them and seeing a few pics. I need to do some work on my little range, it isn't as nice as yours but I enjoy being able to shoot in my yard like you do. I need a load of fill dirt to redo my berm.

Thanks from nf1e

Hickhock45 has nothing on you! There is no excuse to get bored shooting on that range. Heck, there are commercial ranges that aren't that good. Jealous doesn't even come close.

Got out and ran a few ammo tests this morning at the request of a gentleman on another forum that was interested in the Atomic 168 gr match ammo that had been marketed by CMP. Atomic was a bit slower than any of the others at 12'.
Ran 10 rounds of each through my brandy new XM21 with Med weight 20.5 inch Bula Defense barrel cut and target crowned. All were 1moa or better at 100yds. Temp 40 deg.

Results: Atomic 2423
175 GMM 2526
XM118LR 2500
ZQI 2742

Art, did you build that hunting rifle to take up hunting again? Or did you just build it because you could?
