Irons or optics? Sling?

With that bullet, load, twist rate and barrel length I'm guessing a .223 bolt gun; based on pure guess at how many of what are out there, a Rem 700 of some kind. Topped with a 3-9 scope, because there are about of billion of them.

But that's just a guess.

Awesome shooting! :eek: Looks like a pair of 20-round strings?

For point of reference, the X-ring on that target is 3" in diameter, the 10 is 7" and the 9 is 13" (roughly as I remember).

And scopes? Highpower shooters don't need no stinkin' scopes! Irons is good enough for little round target! :p

Edited: I know a few guys shooting AR-15s with 24-28" barrels in .223 with 1-8" and 1-7" barrels. Right now my Highpower rifle is a 20" CMP-spec AR-15 Service Rifle, also in .223 with a 1-7" twist barrel. Absolutely hammers with 77gr Noslers at 200 and 300.

Just a practice session but a very good one but soon to be followed the not so good sessions.

I havenít shot that rifle for awhile. Last year and the year before didnít participate much in matches.

Very very impressive.
Youíd be less impressed if you saw all my targets which run the gambit of A+ to F. Sometimes I amaze myself but over all Iím a decent off hand shot on a good day.

Naw, you'll be shooting fine! :cool:

We have 40-round offhand matches going at my local Highpower club the last two weekends and the next two. The first one I shot poorly and blamed on thinking about the ex-girlfriend and the sub-freezing tmeps. This past weekend was in the 60s at start time and went much better (better focus). Looking forward to doing it again this weekend.

Besides, I was once told, if you can shoot a 10 on-call once, you can do it every time. ;)

I would post that one to. Thank you for your kind words. Vanity allows me not to post the not so good targets.

This past weekend was in the 60s at start time By our standards we had a rough winter along with three major snow falls. A major snow fall is two or more flakes :what:by our standards. We simply no longer shoot when the weather is cold. Cold is below 60F.:uhoh:

With my limited abilities Iíve learned two things accept your sight picture for what it is and the trigger press is 95%+ of the equation;)

Thank you for your kind words. Bolt guns still have their place. The Creedmoor configuration bolt gun is now more or less state of the art now. At this point I’ll make do with what I got.

One target isnít the complete story. On average I may not be as good as you are. Every dog has its day so this old dog (me) had its day.:)

I see a high master card in your near future if you keep that up! And a leftie to boot:)

Shot a bolt gun last weekend in our high power match. I'm switching over to stick shift as soon as possible myself. The adjustability and lock time of the T2K is hard to beat. It was the first time I ever touched that rifle or shot a stick shift in a match. 778-21x and it's like crack, I'm hooked.

To tell the truth Iím mostly on my way out as opposed to my way up. I think some one looked down from above and decided to let me shoot some really good scores so I could leave gracefully. Iíve lost the dedication (no fire in the belly) required to be really competitive and time waits for no man.:)

You must have been shooting some very polite bullets. They patched their holes on the way thru ! ! ! :D

Ah, highpower! I miss it. I still have the NM AR15 from RRA, but can't stand the long drives to and from the "local" matches. Taught myself, and loaded all my own ammo, made Sharpshooter in my second match, and was on my way to an all time best when the #$%&*%$ RRA NM failed on me. I'd nailed the 200yd standing, 300 etc. and was a 10 and 2 X's into the 600 prone when the recoil buffer came apart. Darn thing was still well in warranty, and couldn't even get RRA to return my calls or e-mails. CRAPPY customer service. Never went back. Still, 600yds with iron sights...yummmm! It is AMAZING what an accurate rifle will do if you do your part. Scopes, right.

^^they probably said, "Excuse me" as they poked through. :rolleyes:

Nice shooting. At 200 yds those targets get small.

Yes, yes they do! I wish there were some matches out here, nothing for me to do but go shoot by myself.

Quote: "Accept your sight picture for what it is".

Thanks for reinforcing the validity of that thought for me - exactly the goal I have for this year. If a sight picture looks good, it ain't going to get any better by waiting awhile.

My training buddy's favorite trueism is that the way to hit the 10 ring is to avoid firing the gun when the sight is outside the 10. As we all know, this too is not easy to pull off.

To expound on the above a bit. If the sights are moving off the black after mounting the rifle, take it down and start over. You can't make chicken salad out of chicken s***. Half of not hitting the ten ring is the acceptance of bad shots due to poor sight alignment. If it ain't there don't try to force it there, won't happen.

On the flip side don't dress up X's. Pull the trigger on the first one you see. This advise is worth exactly what you paid for it.
