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.
- 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.
- All I can say is that I LOVE this thing.
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.
- 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.
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)
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.
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?!
