Range Results for 7-24-2020 - Part 1 or 2
« on: July 25, 2020, 08:19:22 AM »
It rained most of the morning here and it was hot and humid at the range, boy was it hot, drunk plenty of liquids there also....the temperature was in the lower 90's and the dew point was in the high 60's....but the barometric pressure was going up so I knew that it was going to be hot and muggy day....having said all that (did I mention that is was hot and humid!!) I took 5 regular rifles and one shotgun with me to the range for a total of 6 rifles....started shooting about 12:15 PM (shortly after lunch hour) left the range about 3:15 PM and went to eat Mexican...and was sweating head to toe and that included my underwear was soaking wet also...LOL..

The little Ruger American in the 300 Blk Out with its Konus 1.5-6X M30 (which means it has a 30 mm tube). Using Hornady Factory Ammo of 135 gns the rifle it self shot a good group at 100 yards but it was way to the left...after I got home I moved it 10 clicks to the right....about 3/4" of the way to the bulls-eye of the target...see pix....The reason why I put a Konus on it was becuase I did not have a Nikon Monarch 1.5-6X available....also it helps dwindle down the scope pile a little bit....

The other rifle I had to adjust was the 6.5 CM in the Savage 10BA Stealth, adjust it down 6 click it was sighted in to be an 1" high at 200 yards but since I will be shooting the deer at 100 yards and in...decided to adjust the Sig-Sauer Tango 4 scope down.....The reason why I shot 4 rounds is that the 4th shot was the last round available....now onto reloading for the Savage 6.5 CM model 10 BA Stealth,,,,,,will stick with the 140 to 147 gn bullets on this,,,deer season is getting closer and closer!

The rest of photo are OK as well....more on Range Results Part 2

Yari - Glad you got your food plots in - ours we will plant at the end of August. It is either feast or famine for us....it either is dry as a bone or it is muddy and rainy all weekend long....

I have to say, this is the best prep and planting I've had. got rain today. if it wasn't too much, i'm optimistic
