Re: New Range opening up
Finally got to shoot at the range this weekend.
Weather was hot as hell which made the shooting not much fun at all.
Had some problems with the RSI shooting lab, the chrono worked great but we couldn't get the Pressure Trace system set up due to labtop problems.
The Allen Mags were clocing 3250 with fireforming loads and my 25-06 with the 125gr wildcat clocked just under 3100fps so I was very happy. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
We were just about ready to leave when we got a call from some other guys saying they were on there way out to shoot. When BJ told me who was coming out to shoot I quicly realized that one of the guys coming had a class 3 FFL so I was excited to see what toys he brought with him.
The first toy he brought out was a AR-50, this was the first time I had ever gotten to shoot a 50cal so it was a experince. We were shooting incindiary rounds at a 5 foot by 4 foot rock at 515yds. I was amazed to see the massive spark when the bullet impacted the rock and then the deafening thud.
BJ managed 2 shots within about 1.5" of eachother and that was the best group with the gun.
After this we got to shoot a silenced H&K 45 which was one of the coolest things I have ever seen. The loudest sound you could hear from the shot was the bullet hitting the plywood sheet at 100yds.
We shot some groups on the rock with our 270 AM's. I picked out a small, roughly 3", light spot on the corner of the large rock and proceded to put a 2.5" 3 shot group on it.
Overall it was a fun day but the heat is just killing all of our shooting time here. BJ didn't bring his camera so I don't have any pics but we will be shooting again soon so pics will come next time.
Take it easy
