    That looks like a challenging target. I'll have a go at it in a week or two.

    Well done, MrBorland. Very impressive for irons.

    I had a few minutes right at sundown to run to the range tonight. This time of year the sun sets right behind the 200 yard berm so I had to wait a few minutes and "play" with a handgun until it was hidden.

    I shot 3 targets at ~215 yards (see how I handicapped myself there). :) That 's just where the berm sits so that's what I normally shoot. It was the first time I've been able to shoot this gun with less than a 10mph wind. It was blowing in from the right at about 5mph but calmed down to about nothing as I was finishing up.


    I thought was in the bottom of the eye ring in the left target. My third target drifted farther down and right.

    They should score 30 and 45. I'll be back another day to try for the 60!

    I'm shooting my new AR15 with a 20" varmint barrel. 69gn Nosler handloaded .223. It has a Mueller 8-32x44 Target scope. I'm excited to give this rifle a good workout this summer. I may have just found a place to shoot 600 yards some. I'm hoping to try it out there sometime soon.

    Happy Shooting!

    Good shooting, Gregaw! Don't know if I've mentioned this here in the CF match, but feel free to fill the ring(s) with color (with photoshop, et cetera, or a crayola...whatever works as long as you can still make out the ring is fine by me) if that will aid you in finding the right sight picture.

    image.jpg 22 Benchrest / Rem700 action / Hart barrel / Lapua brass / Nosler 40 grain BT / Benchmark / Nikon 6.5 x 20. A calm evening and enough time to setup on the range - finally got it done. Tried a second target for the '60' score but no luck on that one. Looking forward to the 3rd quarter target.

    Welcome to the match, 22BR! Fine shooting, sir. Make sure to take a look at the sister thread (in my sig. line) for a rimfire match if you have any interest.

    Sorry for the delay, I've been very busy with mission-work as of late and was just too tired to close us out and start the new one last night.

    1st: Tie between Gregaw & 22BR - 45pts.

    Magnified Division/Sporting Class:
    1st: Texas4x4Hoe - 26pts.

    1st: MrBorland - 45pts.

    Well done folks! :)
