Good Day at the Range
 
9 Attachment(s)
Had some fun at the range today. I shot my Remington 1911, my 1937 M1895 Nagant, and my Remington 700 30-06 this time out.

M1895 Nagant - I think I finally have most of the accuracy issues ironed out. I shot 30 rds from the kneeling position, and am pretty happy with the results. I'd like to tighten it up some though.

This is from 7 yards.

It still shoots a little high (so I aimed low), but that's to be expected of a gun made to hit man sized targets at 25 meters. Not bad for a gun made in 1937. :D

Remington 1911 - All I can say is that I LOVE this thing. :D I need to work on my trigger control though. I was shooting a little off. I was able to get it pretty close to being dead on by the time I got to my last mag. I put about 50 rds through it this time. I had another FTF. It was the last round of the same mag again. It only did this once though. I'm defiantly going to invest in some Wilson Combat mags.

Here's after a good day shooting.

Attachment 107160

Remington 700 - I spend all my time on this trying to sight in the scope I just put on it. I got it pretty close to being dead on, but it got too dark for me to get it perfect. At least it won't take much to get it sighted in next time I go to he range. I'm going to have to get a recoil pad for this thing. I don't know what it is, but it kicks HARD. One round through it from sitting at the bench (When I'm standing, the recoil is fine) makes my shoulder soar. What's odd is, I can go through 20-50 rounds with my Mosin, and note be soar at all. :confused:
I don't think it's the ammo. I load it pretty light. (Magnum primer, 47 gr of 4320, and a 165 gr AP bullet)

Attachment 107171

While at the range, I found these. Any idea what they are? I think they're .308, but I don't have any .308 to compare it too.

Attachment 107165

They're 2.0055" long, and are head stamped "LC 67" and have a small scope reticle stamped on the other side.

BTW, WTF kind of bug is this?!

Glad to see you had fun brother. BTW how do you like that Nagant revolver?

Now that the accuracy issues are mostly solved (not all will be like that. Some will already be accurate), I really like it. It's a nice gun to shoot. It has a very mild recoil, and an interesting history/design. The trigger is a little stiff. Especially when shooting double action. There are a few things you can do to fix this though. I did a very minor trigger job on it (I didn't touch anything that could make it unsafe), and now the single action trigger is pretty good.

You can also do this.

Note the deformed bullet under the spring. Russian/Soviet troops would actually do that to their Nagants. It lightens the trigger some.

When I get my C&R license I'm thinking about getting a crate of them. Still trying to decide if its worth it.

They used to sell for about $99-$130, but I think they're closer to $150 now.

Most people see them as a curiosity. Some like me see them as a fun shooter (defiantly helps if you reload, ammo is not very cheap, and it has to usually be shipped. Reloaded ammo is dirt cheap). There's a few people who collect them too.

I just tried the bullet thing out of curiosity, and WOW. MUCH better. Now, the trigger is a little heavier than my 1911's. (my 1911 has about a 3.5 lb trigger on it)

The $20 slip on recoil pads from walmart work perfect for the 06. I had the exact same issue with mine. In the woods recoil was barely noticable but on the bench it was punishing. I tried the pad and it worked perfectly. In fact, I don't need it anymore. I blew up the 06 and its being turned into a 308 now. $15 and its yours. Ill cover the shipping

Thanks for the offer, but I think I'll pass. I'm wanting to get a grind to fit pad. I really like the wood on my rifle, so I'd hate to cover some of it up.

You blew up your 06'? :eek:

get a Pachmyer grind to fit recoil pad. i put them on all my rifle stocks. they come in brown or black. they do soak up the recoil. the one i use is the Deaccelarator.

looking pretty good with the R1! nice shooting!:D

Edit: i think that's a stink bug!

I'll look into them. What do you use to grind them? Would a belt sander probably be fine?

Thanks. :D

Those casings look like surplus 308 to me, I don't have a caliper or I'd check.
