In my continuing quest to not feel utterly foolish at Boomershoot, I went to SVRC late Sat afternoon for some more 200 yard shooting. (Hopefully I will soon be Cascaded and can reach out to 600 yards.)
Coldish (low 40’s maybe?)
Light wind (guessing 5-10 MPH?) from about 1:30.
RRA 2-stage Match Trigger
Super Sniper 16X Scope
Leupold Medium QRW rings
Georgia Arms 168gr BTHP ammo
Dell Inspiron XPS Laptop bag (as my bench rest)
I shot 7 3-shot groups at separate 200 yard targets after about 30 minutes of dry fire practice. I then shot a bunch of (stationary) skeet at 200 yards to see how rapidly I could engage multiple stationary targets (and because they kind of explode… he he he).
Worst group was under 2 inches; outside measure of the best group was conservatively about .625 (see pics). So that works out to (drum roll please) .15 MOA. I got that after (slightly – maybe one click? – over) compensating for the wind.
- Dry firing is fun.
- Shooting live ammo is fun.
- Long distance shooting is fun.
- You should wait until you are done giggling about your last target before you start up again.
- GA Ammo is remarkably good for the price.
- I totally heart this rifle.
