First one hole group ever!!

After 8+ years of trying, I have finally shot my very first 1 hole group (must have flinched just right), unfourtunatly it was only a 3 shot group. Had it been 5 it really would have been somthing. When I say 1 hole I meen 1 30 cal. hole. My previous best was .190 On rare occasions I have put 2 throuh the same hole but never 3. An interesting side note is this was my first real experiance with the 178 AMAX. Maybee this is a taste of things to come?? Several other load test groups shot sub 1/2" and one other group shot .250" All at 100 yards

42.0 gr RL-15, 178 AMAX @ 2.830" Fire formed, neck turned and neck sized only Lapua 308 cases. Factory Remington 24" heavy 11.25 twist rifle w/McMillan M40A1 stock. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

A 3 shot one-hole group is always something to be proud of.

Re: First one hole group ever!!

Are we to understand that you shot three consecutive rounds into a space so small that the end result was a hole with which it is difficuly or even impossible to discern that more than one shot splashed through the target at that point? Are you saying that you shot a group that measured 0.000"?!?!?

If you can see it, then you can hit it!

Re: First one hole group ever!!

Thats Great!
I have one bullet that weights 250gr for my 338 Rem Ultra Mag. When ever I shoot it all bullets go in same hole it makes me think that I'm missing the target so I put one shot
next to the place I've been shooting to clarify all my bullets are going to the same hole. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Re: First one hole group ever!!

Its allways fun to shoot your first one holer! I had a 6ppc years ago, i had one group that measured .006 five shots. Too bad it wasn't during a match, would of been a record at that time. I made lots of money betting guys with it, i could kill flys at 100yards...little bit of over kill. There would be a faint sign of red around the hole, proved i hit the fly...problem was hoping the fly didn't move. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
