    Participated in another military bolt action rifle competition yesterday. Used one of my Finn M39's with a slightly tweaked loading I got from fellow THR member PTK.

    Won one round for group size (3 inches, 10 shots @ 100yards) and one round for score (98-2x).

    Here are a couple pics. Note worthy is the second pic, which is of the first round for score. Group size for those 10 shoots was 1-11/16 inches. This is a good load for the M39 and it works in multiple rifles.

    150gr. Sierra ProHunter
    46gr H4895
    PRVI brass
    OAL 2.850

    First image is of all 50 shots @ 100 yards.

    Nice. These were shot off-hand?

    That is some fine shooting Sir, fine indeed.

    I wish I was half that good - with a high power scope, bench, rest, sand bags, yada yada yada,,,
