Finally got my scope in yesterday so i hurried up and threw it on and got it level. Grabbed my ammo and headed to the farm.

Wobbly Bipod, its not exactly made to fit but it was better than nothing..



190gr SMK (thanks Mr Doug!) 68grs H4831, BR-2, RP Brass.

Threw these reloads together to get a feel for the gun. Gonna chrono today, also have some loads starting at 68grs up to the listed max of 73grs. All seated the same depth, 3.510"

9rounds after sighting in.. And no i wasnt aiming for that target, actually aiming for the one below that black circle about 20" lower. Its got a 20MOA Base and i got the windage right shooting at 50yds and it was about 10" high then..
IF i didnt count that one high right, it was about 7/8" group. with it, its 1.25".
Hope to have a load figured out before Saturday. I shot the rifle 6 times Friday with no scope just shooting at the sand bank on the creek, Shot 4 rounds at 50yds getting it sighted in, and the 9rds at 100yds. So its got a total of 19rds down tube so far.

:D



Notice the vertical group?

The Leadsled had some play in it, finally i got a ratchet strap and strapped it to the bench. Helped some but the rear of it had some slack.

We were out shooting Saturday, i had the good ole 300 and got it sighted in for 600yds.
Even hit the 600yd plate with my Stevens .223 :D

Well there just so happen to be a Egret behind us in the field that was plowed up. Well a quick SWAG for 350yds and it was in my scope, another SWAG and 2 mil hold under.. sent it.. shot over. Chambered another round and went for a 3 mil hold under, center hit. Bird down.. Range finder said 365yds :D Not to shabby, eh?

Thats some good shooting. I settled on 71gr of IMR 4350 behind a 150gr. pspbt for my Ruger #1. I have shot deer frome 0 to 500yds with no problem. Sighted in inch and one half high at 100yds I hold an inch and a half over at 500. Deer do not stand a chance. Have fun with your toy.
