    I some issues with the stock scope awhile back and not wanting to use ammo since getting a hunting TAG in New Mexico is difficult for state residence!

    Anyway, go to the range and the wind is blowing with some gusts.

    I setup the target at 25 yards, after 3 shots hitting in the black. Move to 50 yards. Something, in the black. The 100 yards was aiming for black and hitting to the right about 1 foot off, the wind and sand was blowing.

    Shooting Winchester 150 grain ammo soft points! I did have 1 bad one out of 10, the bolt would not advance forward and the bullet jammed, was removed and tossed!

    I had the Remington 700 VTR .223 and the S&W MP 15-22 to shoot, called it off! Did not want to waste time and ammo, blowing sand was getting nasty!

    The wood target frame broke in half! The weather had gusts to 34 mph; but, we are talking the full force of it with no blocking buildings or trees!

    Next time, will have pictures.
