target pic, and couple questions/thoughts
so i headed to the range wednesday afternoon. it was chilly at 47 degrees, very little wind. but i was still more than ready to pull the trigger. i took my marlin.22, winchester model 70 chambered in .308, and my mosin 91/30.
my .22 performed great as it always does. most all shots under 1 1/2 in at 50yards. fired about 75 shots or so.
moved along the line, with these two rifles i alternated to give my barrels at least a little cool down time in between. i would fire three to four shots from each rifle then switch to the other, with a total of twenty rounds per each.
ive never fired my mosin at this range for much more than fun however i would like to practice alot this summer so i can use it for deer season.
my .308 has been my deer rifle for several years now. last year it got a new bushnell elite 3200 scope..
now granted i had coffee that morning and i know i have not practiced as much as i should but i was really hoping my .308 would of performed better.
in your opinion, do you think besides my flyers, that my main group was low to the left. should that warrent a scope adjustment or could it be something i am doing that is putting my shots to the left. side note. when shooting my pistols i sometimes hit more left too. im not concerned to much with elevation as 100 yards is about the longest shot oportunity i have where i hunt. once in awhile there is a 250yrd shot into the some fields but not often.
but then with my mosin, i was to the right. not as tight a group but by far there is a definite hit area. and its not near the center. how should ior can i adjust my mosins sights. i looked but only found elevation on the rear sight.
ideas? concerns? need more info? please let me know
I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.
