    Gonna have to go shoot this one again - got to the range, set up and started shooting (3-9X40 @ 50 yards with the Romanian M69). I'm diabetic and I forgot to eat lunch before I left the house. My blood sugar started to go low and I got shaky enough I had problems holding center target.

    Gonna go back Monday and shoot it again. Tomorrow (Friday) and the weekend are usually too busy and I don't like to tie up a lane during hunting season as there are many people checking their rifles and making sure the zero didn't change from last year. Gets busier than feeding time at the local zoo.

    Spent a couple hours this afternoon stoning and smoothing the trigger/sear assembly in the Romanian M69. Got the trigger pull from a gritty 10 lbs down to a very smooth 2 stage 4 lbs with no creep. Final task is to create an overtravel stop and I may have to change this thing from sporter to target class!

    Sounds like a heck of an improvement, and it should aid with hitting those elusive "Xs" (or in this case dots). ;)

    Dang im a good internet shooter, I was looking at the target and thought "Yea, I can pull off a 54 or so... printed off two targets, paced off 50yds, 12 pops later I go look at the target and come up with a 50 and a 32, ugh! I definitely dont spell "perfection" like "Remington"... I wish everyone luck and I'm gonna go back and try a couple more times, lol.

    Im about ready to take the Mosin out, the bullet has a rim to it, haha...

    Take that 91/59 out and shoot the November "High Power" match with it. ( http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=552594 ) I need someone to beat my 91/30's score - right now I'm sitting #1 in that match with an old 1942 Izzy 91/30 I bought from Gander Mountain 3 years ago for $99.95.

    I'll see what I can do, I'll probably take one of the K31's out for the high power match. Everything has open sights on it right now, waiting on the clamp on mount for the K31 now, trying to pick up a good scope for it.

    Thanks for the welcome, I have enjoyed looking through a lot of the threads here

    Welcome, MN9159!! I know what you mean. Those bullseyes certainly look a LOT bigger on the computer monitor at home than they do on the backer board at the range, don't they?! Range shrinkage! :eek:

    P51D :cool:

    Finally made it back to the range after several weeks. It was a absolutly beautiful day. In the 70's with little wind in Ohio in November!!
    Not sure how you guys score these, if you break the line you get the higher score?
    If so looks like I finally shot a perfect target. Someone please score this.
    I ask one favor, could you make the targets alittle smaller next time:)
    Man they sure look smaller at the range than they do at home

    Yep, but it isn't quite perfect because you didn't cut all the dots (worth 10pts.)...but it appears to be a score of 56, which is respectable nonetheless!

    Sure thing...I was thinking about just printing a page with a single dot (like a period), just to make it worth shooting...cause I know these are just too easy. :p

    Good shooting, Orlando! :)

    About the best I did with a sling and iron sights was
    pb130359.jpg
    (Disregard the numbers scribbled on the side, those were notes about something else.)

    Did a tad better with a 2-7x Burris and el cheapo bipod off Amazon

    Rifle was CMMG 22LR dedicated AR upper.

    Looks like a 27 for irons, and 43/39 for optics to me...that scope makes a heck of a difference.

    Yeah, 300 yards on a silhouette is about the limit of my eyesight with irons.

    Today was a perfect day in the Mojave for a bit of target shooting and plinking...This is my first attempt at one of the rimfire matches since getting my rifle newly scoped. Here are the details of my shoot:

    Gun: Ruger 10/22, target model K10/22-T
    Optics: Leupold VX-II 3-9x33mm Rimfire EFR scope cranked up to 9x power
    Distance: 50 yards
    Position: prone using range bag for front rest
    Ammo: CCI Mini Mags 40gr round nose

    The rifle is capable of better using match grade ammo but I'm happy enough with these results. I may give it a go with better ammo later this month but I didn't have any of the top shelf stuff with me today. By my calculations this is a 43...but please correct me if I'm wrong. This was also the best I did out of 5 or 6 tries. My low score was 36. Looking forward to seeing some more results.

    Welcome to the match Pocket Rocket! I think you short-changed yourself...looks like a 46 or 47 to me (it's tough to tell if the bottom right is a "8" or "9").
