Just came back from the range
32 degrees, + 5 - 10 mph winds
The wind wasn't blowing when I left the house. This is my latest #4. Wanted to see if it's going to put two holes on the same peace of paper. Didn't make any sight adjustments, to cold to mess around. Tryed to shoot with a pair of thin gloves, then I tryed one glove, then no gloves. Had 4 ppu 174 gr rounds ,that I used the gloves couldn't hang on to the rifle. Had 1/2 a box of Remington 180 gr
Rn put 5 of them in group. The target was only 45 yrd .
I have signed up for a virtual target shoot on another site, have all year to submit my target, so over the summer I will shoot all my Enfield's, pick the best one, to shoot the NRA sr1 target 200 hundred yrd target reduced for 100 yards. They have 3 diff categories. It should be fun.

Haven't shot an Enfield since I got out of boot camp, it was the only rifle my dad had ammo for when I got home from Parris Island. Don't know if it was that Marine Corps marksmanship training or natural ability but I shot a doe at about 80 yds through the head. That was 38 years ago.
