    1903 remington / 1903a3 springfield stock w/timney sportsman trigger set to -1lb. old lyman peep sight

    ammo used is handrolled;remington brass,180gr castlead bullets w/gas checks,15gr.Alliant herco powder...these are very quiet w/no recoil,chronograph @ 1847fps

    shooting from deck rail using winchester beanbag rest while sitting upright on 5 gal. bucket:D

    first two shots fired was low....so i took the sight up a couple of clicks & out of 5 shots this was the best i could do:eek:
