See if this will work from my phone. This is a target from last weekend, I was testing some 2015 loads and 4895. I ran out of day light before I got out the good stuff. 3 shots were from my brother shooting his 308 Savage 10 and adjusting his scope the rest were mine. I will have to try again this weekend, oh darn ; )

Just registered, just had my 581-series Ranch out for the first time this past Thursday.

Think I'll give the 50/irons challenge a whirl! Seems like a great way to get myself more comfortable with the mini.
Looking forward to posting my first attempts!

Had a blast today shooting from 6:30 till dark with all 3 minis, I beat the challenge with my target mini today with this target. It took 2 chances from a clean bore, I marked the top two targets from the target mini and I got close with my standard mini on the bottom targets. I only shot 1 time with my 6.8 mini and did fair but I did not have enough ammo to shoot again so I saved the rounds for some tannerite charges I shot and will post in the other thread.

It may be easier to shoot at the 1" circles and measure out from the center. I think I can dial in the 196 and 6.8 if I put down the tannerite long enough!

OK, I finally got my Mini back from the gunsmith. He and I have been working on a "Harris" mod for my Mini-30. We are close to complete, but I need to fine tune it a little more . He thinks we are done, but I say no.

Took to the range today and fired off a couple hundred handloads testing for accuracy and fliers. One thing I found is that after the "Harris" mod all of my previous load data is out the window. Some of my accurate loads shoot for **** and some of my **** loads shoot good. So, I started all over again.

At the end of the day I fired off a few for the Mini challenge. Long story short, these are the last three of the day.

All three are the same load with three different mags.

Five round Ruger Factory.


10 round ProMag.


Second, Ruger Factory five round mag.

Promag group looks nice! They all look like good mini groups.
