then the rain came and I had to pick up
I like the bench too.
I have that same tripod for my spotting scope.
One of my favorite things to do used to be shooting subsonic 22 at 150-200 yards after a fresh snow. If the light is just right you can watch the bullets fly through the scope.
100 is fun, 240 is giggles.
We shoot a steel plate match 25 to 240yds Last stage is five 8" plates at 240yds prone. Makes you giggle when you drop them.
Wind will really move a 40 grain bullet around at 1050 fps. That's some pretty darn good shooting right there.
I got bored with shooting at 50 yards and have moved on to 100 and beyond 200 with my 22's. I often place clay targets on the berm beyond the 200 yard line at my range and shoot them. They will vary between 210-230 yards and are much more challenging and fun than shooting at 50 yards.
I keep thinking about setting up a .22 rifle like this. Posts like yours BigDog are good incentive. Thanks for posting.
I like silhouette. Throwing out the bench and bags, then standing to shoot offhand separates the men from the boys....lol...It usually is quite humbing to newcomers.
My wife's even figured that out.
She doesn't shoot offhand well, but shes deadly off the bench.
I've noticed this as well. I shoot a Savage Mk II with Leupold 2-7x33 scope that has a duplex reticle. I find that the exact same point on my duplex as you describe is spot on at 100 meters.
