Here's one from the Tactical Long range match I shot today. I had a great group at 900 yards
. But it only goes to show a great group means nothing if it isn't in the right place. Not only did I not win the match, I didn't even finish in the money. I did get an honorable mention for not just having the best group, but doing it with a 103 year old rifle. I was just happy that almost all my shots were on the black.
For 3 shots everything came together. My hold, the ammo, the wind. My next best group was slightly bigger, and was only at 600 yards. But FWIW, this is the second time I've shot a group like this at this kind of distance.
Shot from the prone position using a sandbag under the front of the rifle. Load is 6.5x55 Mauser, 142 SMK at 2615 fps.
The Rifle: 1902 Carl Gustaf M41b Swedish Mauser Sniper Rifle
The view through the 4X
The Target: B27 Silhouette. Major dimension of the black - 30"x21"
The Group: Pasters marked 900-1 900-2 900-3. The covered paster was an earlier shot, the uncovered hole is one of my last 3 shots at 1000 yards.
The Group size: As measured on the back of the target
Nice shooting HighCAp!!!
600 yard group with PSS
Here is my best at 100 so far. I don't have too much of a chance to shoot any further.
Win Mod 70 Laredo 300WM
190 gr SMK over 72 gr RL-22 in virgin win brass with win mag rifle primers.
This can shoot 1/2 MOA or better, 5-shot groups, all day @ 100 yards.
I plugged a three-shot 1.5" today at 480yards under close to the same conditions. If I did that in a five shot I would shit myself. (LTR with 168FGMM) There is a world of difference in three vs five shot groupings.
Again, Nice shooting!
3 shots 100yds. HS Precision HTR .308
5 shots 100 yds. HS Precisidn HTR .308
5 more shot 100 yds.
Thanks Celt, thanks Boom.

200 yd 5 shot group, Si Sauer 3000 SSG. Yeah I missed the Red Dot!

Shot this group off the bipod yesterday after mounting the scope. Took 5 to sight it in, these are the last three shots with a hot barrel (and can).
This rifle is one of the 1000 or so Remington put out from their custom shop. They lap the actions, square them up and throw the 40X trigger on them. I could swear that the barrel was lapped as well, but it does'nt seem to be the case. Pretty good product straight from the Remington factory.
The can is an SRT Shadow
sweet looking rig there!
Going out to the range in 5 minutes. I am working up a load for my 700 pss.
I will post some pictures when I get back. Hope I found a good load. First time shooting this new gun.
Nothing spectacular, but this was my first time out with this rifle (it's used, but new to me). For what it is, I'm quite impressed.
