Thought you guys might like the group I just shot this morning at 345yds.
Swabbed the barrel as groups were starting to grow after 70rds of shooting. Just ran a dry patch down the pipe a few times. No chemicals. Took the fouling shot then hunkered down and hammered this 4rds.
And if you are wondering why I didn't shoot the 6th shot to make a 5rds group? Yes, I chickened out.
Is this typical? I wish. Nope more like 1/2" to 1" for 5 rds under most normal conditions of wind and mirage. I always seem to pull a shot. Oh well, good enough for possibles in F class.
A few more days to practise and then it is off to Kamloops. Apparently, the shoot is full so we will be shooting 5X15 rds instead of the 5X20. I am glad that we have to shoot a shorter course first time out. Very tiring to keep concentrating and form for 20rds.
Already shot 500rds and cleaned the barrel maybe 4 times. I am liking the stability and consistency the Gaillard is showing dispite being really fouled. Will come in handy for those long F class days.
