    Fella's;

    Hmmm, last week I made a witnessed and lazed shot on a ground squirrel, about an 8" tall X 3" wide target. We'd moved locations & driven about 10 miles to get to this site. The barrel was cold, and the wind was kicking up a mite last Sunday on the front range of the Rockies here in Montana. The shot was 170 yards - with a CZ452 .22lr.

    Nice shooting. My Savage 12 LRPV will shoot about that well at 500 yards on a good day but not with a cold bore. They finally put in a 600 yard range at my club and wouldn't you know I had to move late last fall. I'm going to get back there and pay my yearly dues to shoot one time I guess. Then I'm joining a club where I live now. Makes sense - not.

    The last 2 days I have been shooting Berger 168 VLD's With RL-15 powder. And that is a load I have NO experience with. I am not blaming the results on that. But check this out

    Here are some groups I shot after the Cold Bore shot with my original load with a 168gr SMK with Varget powder and the VLD RL-15


    SMK< 5 shots each >VLD

    That's some impressive shooting! Kudo's to you.

    However, I went back & checked the weather for Cascade MT. zip 59421 on 4/28/13. Remember when I posted that the wind had been kicking up a mite? Afternoon winds probably averaged something in the 20's with gusts to 40 mph. My shot was made with the wind maybe 20 degrees off the right shoulder, target downwind, with a 452 American in the original stock, Nikon Monarch 3.3-10X A/O mildot, from the kneeling position. On a live target.

    Someone pointed out my case of Dyslexia, I said 8.5 mll and I dialed 9.5 mil.
    Just went and checked my ballistic chart. and I should have dialed 9.5 mil. Guess I was thinking one thing and talking about another. haha

    That's amazing, man. Keep these videos coming.

    I can't decide whether I enjoy the shooting or the scenery more. You're in Wyoming right?

    Great shooting and a fun thread! What ammo did you use in that .22 hit on the beer can?
