    Spent the weekend in Carson City, tried out my new target which did a damn good job. Target was shot up with 22's, 9's, 40's, 45's, and 5.56.
    Would post some pics but can't figure out how to post pictures that are saved to your computer.

    I've been shooting about once a week but I've been going to an outdoor range where ranger officers replace the paper targets so I haven't had any to post :( But I am very happy with my improvement.

    Man its crazy how time flys when you're out shooting. 5.5 hours felt like maybe a couple.

    Hey How's your consistency with that 6.5? Are you able to string some shots together when the conditions are stable? What's your longest string of consistent shots?



    Went Hog-(control) Hunting Friday.

    Saw the wily Armored Possum:

    And the majestic Long-eared Grass Rat:

    At 1250ish?

    Repeatable hits on steel. Big piece of steel though, but most on a 12x18" zone. But the wind in that area sucks, it's not that strong(5-15) but it changes directions and speed often. Just the different mountain angles and sizes in the area I assume.

    I always found 1-5 or six shots not too bad, but trying to repeat 16+ consecurive shots another ballgame.

    How much did the mirage play into it?

    If you aim off, even the best ballistic rounds will miss.

    Usually just try to get on target, then hit propane tanks, hostage flipper(<.5 moa, very difficult to judge misses as well), chest flap etc. Haven't really tried to get good groups. Definitely gotten sub moa 3 shot groups, maybe 5, not sure. Might try to do a few groups at 1k in the future.

    Not bad, the scope is bright and clear. Only shot in around 90ish though.

    39.5 MOA! or there abouts. Sounds pretty close to the droppage of my 30'06.


    I had 26 or so at 1000 yards with it. 175grn Sierra, 2950fps.

    I remember a goon next to me shooting a 7mm Mag with 180grn VDS said he had 19MOA.

    For a second I though, Sheeeeiit I'm only 7 MOA off with my 30'06.

    Then I thought oh, that's like almost 6ft more drop!
