    Finely, after months of not shooting, went to the range a bit ago and here is the target I shot. I had a hard time trying to figure out the scope turrets, REALLY, some kind of seizure I suppose, (up does not mean up, right does not mean right,) so after a little walk, I zeroed it out and you can see the vertical string, But try as as I may the scope's MOA would not allow me to split the X. I was having a time of it shooting and trying to spot and sometimes it was difficult to see my hits.
    distance: 200 yards,
    wind/ 3-5 mph with gusts to about 8 mph from our position, 10 o'clock to 4 o'clock.
    bench rested/sand bags, BSA 9-24 Contender, reloads, Adams & Bennet barrel

    200 yard .308

    No one should be ashamed of a 200 yard target like that. It looks like you know how to sight in a rifle. And what a rifle. I have a couple of .308 Mausers and like wise some 30-06 Mausers. I don't think any of them will shoot like that. Of course I was not the one that made them LOL

    1/8 " moa

    It seems to be consistent with the 1/8 " MOA. I hope my math is correct, 1/8" @ 100 yards becomes 1/4" @ 200 yards and when I measure the two there is just over 1/4" between the two groups in the eye.
