I went and did a little shooting tonight before dark. The load was RE-22 and a 105gr Berger VLD right at 3250 fps. The range was 543 yds, and I was shooting off the bipod in the grass. I shot one fouling shot to clean the oil out of the barrel (far right shot), then loaded up the magazine and shot them fairly quick. There are a total of 5 shots with the cleaning/fouling shot. Pretty happy with the results...now just have to find a deer to try it out on...oh, and need to learn how to read my own drop card. I forgot what elevation I was at and dialed the scope a couple to many clicks.
I have been using a shooting chrony with the remote display....I ordered a new CED Melenium, but it has not showed up yet. I have shot quite a few rounds over the chrono when practicing.......My notes show a 10 shot avg. of 3247 with an es of 6. 1/2 gr less powder was right at 3200, but the es was alot higher. I have been told that es doesn't mean anything, but I figure the lower the number the more consistent the load will be. This seems to be a very consistent load. I like to take out as many variables as possible. (need as much help as I can get) [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Here is an updated picture with the new camo paint job on the stock. Ready to go for the morning hunt.
