It was a perfect day to get in some shooting and I had the time so off to the range I went today. Eddy had just gotten her optic installed and I had a bunch of test loads to try So, it all worked out.. My plan was to take some videos of shooting the dinger out there at 200 but I forgot the video card for the camera so that plan was shot down sorry guys.

HERE IS THE "DINGER O' FUN" AT 200 YARDS (circled)

THE 100 YARD FIXTURES (boring)

THE 200 YARD AND FURTHER ARE UP HILL WHICH EXPLAINS THE EXTREME ANGLE OF THE RIFLE

EVEN WITH MY RIG NOT RESEMBLING ANY 1917 SNIPER'S RIFLE WHATSOEVER, TO ME IT DOES HAVE THAT " IF THERE WAS, THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE" APPEARANCE TO IT

TEST RESULTS: she did good with the 150 FMJ on top of 52 grains of IMR 4064 and did best with the 165 HPBT on top of 53 grains of IMR 4350. Those 165s upon connecting with the 200 yard dinger were producing a very violent shock wave that I felt in my chest way down there at the bottom of the hill :eek:
