Cold Bore Challenge

This was posted on another hunting forum

"With your best field rifle, known range & favorable conditions (good visibility, light to no wind, prone on bi-pods, time on your side); how far do you feel you can hit a 6" circle with your coldbore shot (no sighters) with a 90%+ confidence (you'd be willing to put up a $100 bill on hitting it)"


I have taken a challenge upon my self to try this no matter the conditions. 20 shots on 20 different days!

I will be doing a video documentary on my progress


Today I shot from 587 yards, In very windy conditions.

Re: Cold Bore Challenge

Cool challenge, if nothing else it should be some great practice, I will defenitely keep followin this.

By the way how do you like that stock? I've been thinking of one myself. I just looked at the AX AICS and it is nice but I don't know that it is as nice as what they want for one.

Do the mags fit in well, any feeding issues?

Thanks
