I spend a lot of range time shooting a Marlin Mod.25 in .22lr, or my Savage .17 hmr to help prefect trigger pull and accuracy. Because they are cheep to shoot and a lot of fun. I sometimes find that with my .308 I will anticipate the firing of the weapon and that causes me to miss a lot more, so I go back to the .22 or .17 hmr until I get it down again.
If you find that you are not getting tight groups with your big dog, then use something like a .22lr to help with the areas that are effecting your shooting. I see a lot of people anticipating recoil when they shoot, and this causes them to miss a lot. I will tell them to go back to a smaller caliber to help fight the bad habits we get into when shooting
Lo there do I see my Father...Lo there do I see my mother and my brothers and sisters...Lo there do I see the line of my peoples back to the begaining...Tho they do call to me...They bid me come take my place among them in the Halls of Valhalla...Where the brave may live forever
Long distance..The next best thing to being there, if you are anywhere between 100-700 yards my Howa and I own you and will choose your time of death. opaww
