    Great groups

    IMG_20200318_163820.jpg

    Here's a 100 meter group I shot today with my 1985 made in 81.

    Notice a couple of things:

    The squares on this target are 3/4"

    There are two 3 shot groups here, one with 400 grain Speer Flat nose 51.5 gr of IMR3031, and the other, 350 gr Speer flat nose, with 53 gr of 3031.

    Both groups are sub 3/4"

    I find it pretty interesting that 6 shots can produce a sub 1 1/4 " group with two different loads.

    I fired a couple of more shots using 300gr hollow points on another target that were just about 1/2 higher than this group.

    I am really enjoying this rifle!

    Good shooting. Those groups should have you putting meat on the table.

    Happy times for sure.
    Big, flatnose bullets eliminate tracking.
