I doubt that I will make it on Sunday, but I'll be there tomorrow AM for some sporting clays. Looks like the weather is gonna be pretty crappy.

Good luck with the clays...

Unfortunately, I don't have a choice of days....it is a corporate tourney.

Tim, I am gonna throw the Celestron in the truck anyway to maybe check it out at the rifle line after the clays if it isn't storming. Give me a call if you have a spare minute to swing by.

Tony, I am probably not the best instructor as I'm only about a 70% shooter, but we can sure go out and have some fun anyway when you get your weapon. We can also go hit some skeet at the local place pretty inexpensively.

No can do today sir John. I have a football tournament followed by practice in the afternoon. Today is as good as wasted and hopefully I dont have to swallow a bottle of ibuprofen afterward.

Enjoy shooting the clays.

No doubt! It wasn't too sloppy when I left at 1145 hours, but it also hadn't started raining too heavy yet either.... like it did the whole way home.

I managed to get 74 birds; not that bad considering the wind and light rain....nor having even picked up the O&U for almost a year. High overall was 91 from a normally 95+ shooter to give a feel for the course/conditions.

I'd like to visit with you a bit about the use of the SP tools that you recommended; I'll give you a phone call if you don't mind?

I might head over there and see if I can get some more practice with the AR.
Link Posted: 2/25/2006 8:19:10 PM EDT
Ar huh?


See yall there.

9am == sleep time. 10am == possible wake-up. Y'all need to get more practical hours to go out there, geez.

Too bad wind doesnt wait play nice with your schedule.

Link Posted: 2/26/2006 11:51:33 AM EDT
Man you guys missed out. Perfect day, wind died around noon, and got this group in at 200 yard.


Thats a .930" which is roughly half MOA.

Nice shooting Tim!! Must have knocked that group out after pistol boy left....

Next time I will expect to see that while I am still there.

I am embarrassed to post my groups from this weekend. I went to my inlaw's place and shot from the prone-Bipod posiiton at 185 yards and was getting 3-4 inch groups. I haven't shot fromt he ground like that since about 1990.











Link Posted: 2/27/2006 9:50:11 AM EDT
what were you shooting with?
Link Posted: 2/27/2006 10:23:33 AM EDT

I was shooting this

on this range:

What should the rifle be capable of do you think?
Link Posted: 2/27/2006 1:31:02 PM EDT
Well, SC is normally a better shot than that - I saw that myself a few weekends back.

Maybe it is the caliber of the rifle causing problems? j/k

Seriously, prone is a completely different animal than shooting off the bench. It takes some practice to get comfortable and in a repeatable position.

What ammo were you using? 3-4 inch groups at that distance is not unreasonable for many types of 5.56 ammo. That is a 5.56?

No I think that's his 6.8spc AR.

It has done this at 100 yards in the past.

At least you were consistent with your group size.

6.8mm SPC. 110 gr hornady HPs with 29grn of Reloader 10-X

The rifle is capable of much more.

Part of it weas my shooting position.
