Re: PRESSURE!!!! arrgggggghhhh


Last Feb while shooting up in Tucson, I took my jacket off during the sighter period. My point of impact at 1K moved over six inches. I put the jacket back on and the next shot hit the ten ring.

It's amazing how little things can make a difference.
If I can kill that coyote from here, Will you walk out to get him?

Hi Ric
I would say you are very lucky to have a rifle which is so accurate and consistent.
This rifle is able to teach you and has taken you to a new level IMHO.

You will not be satisified with anything less from now on though!!! where long range or surgical accuracy is required.

Very interesting, Tim.

Any thoughts on whether or not you may have canted the rifle differently? Were you shooting from a rest or of the bipod?

I think that for the first time I have 2 rifles that I have a world of confidence in. I know that they shoot exactly where pointed if I am doing everything correctly... I now know that if they don't go where pointed.. I has gotta be me... sure does make you a better shooter....
