That's some nice shooting y'all. I'm impressed!

I did not record the measurements of my best group, I just looked at it and thought "well, that's pretty good".

I like shooting my .308 for precision. I don't know why it works out to be so much more accurate than my 300's.

But I try to be "zen" about it.

I figure the group that matters is the one I can shoot ~right now~.

I haven't fired a single round of anything in what seems like a month of Sunday's. Have a few days off this week so hopefully I'll make it to the range.

It definitely makes working up loads easier with a backyard range.

Hopefully the brown truck makes it's rounds early enoug I can sneak out and put a group up for my open division entry. It'll be the first rounds through the 6.5CM.

Spent half the day reloading a couple of new batchs and the other half chrony testing at 100m and then shooting steel at 300m -400m. Had a bit of wind 18 mph, 180m ASL, 18deg C, 980mb ambient press. First round hits on a 6"x6" steel plate with 208gr Amax subs and 125gr BT supers which was perfect match on the ballistic app.

Not the best but OK

Let's all let swamp get his Creedmoor in. I'll try to post a 300 blk group after this weekend.

Well the scope made it but I somehow managed to order the wrong size rings. New rings should be here Thursday. If it ain't one thing it's another...

Going to want to see the caliper on that one. Looks a lot like 4 x .224 wide. Having grageated 3rd grade twice,seems something could be wrong with your ciferin.
