I love this rifle. The Burris is a very nice scope and will be a great piece of kit for hunting. I would like to mount one of my NF scopes on this rifle just to see what kind of groups she can shoot because this rifle is a pleasure to shoot.
Got to the range and found both of the 100 yard lines closed for maintenance. Luckily they had opened the 100 yard line on the old 200/300 yard range. That old range runs East - West so I had to fight the setting sun shinning directly down my scope while getting rained on. Oh well the worst day at the range beats the best day at the office.
I had planned to shoot prone but the 100 yard line on this old range sits low and I had 50 yards of tall grass in my line of sight blocking the target. The 200 and 300 yard lines are on top of berms as this particular range was intended to be a 200 and 300 yard range only. The only real problem with not being able to shoot prone was that the bench was short and I could not move the rifle far enough to the rear to get the muzzle close enough to the LabRadar when shooting suppressed. So I was not able to collect any MVs while shooting with the TranQuilo.
First shots of the day:
Not bad for a 1.5x6 Burris.
The suppressed groups started off even better than unsuppressed but the combination of the setting sun and the mirage off of the suppressor started making it more difficult to hold a tight group.
Data from the unsuppressed box of Hornady 123 gr ELD Match. One round did not get recordered.
