Todays Range Results



I shot this 3 shot group today at 500 yards laying on a tarp on top of a snow bank with my Rem 7mm STW Sendero. I was using my Bipod with no rear bag. I know what you guys are going to say I need them all in the black [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] But we had swirling winds today. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Todays Range Results

Those Quarters get you every time. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Those 140's are going 3390 FPS that is their average out of 10 shots. When I used to use 80 grains of R-22 I was driving them at 3440FPS. I changed powders because I was sick of fighting with R-22 every time I bought a new can of powder. Now when I run out of H-1000 I just buy a new can and I dont have to work up a new load. Another reason I switched is because this rifle likes Hodgon Powder and it does not matter if it is H-4831, H-1000, or Retumbo. I am going to try hit that Quarter again tomorrow, Maybe I will get lucky. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Thanks guys! I am sorry for the pic being so large. I tried to edit it but then half of the target was cut out.

Re: Todays Range Results

Re: Todays Range Results

Now if we can just get that horrible bug fixed (where wide images make you pan to read comments). That's worse the the Image bug I reported months ago.

Congrads but I'm afraid more people don't read this thread because of the horrible bug in the InfoPoop software. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Re: Todays Range Results

If you have XP, you might want to try "Image Resizer Powertoy for Windows XP". It works great. It gives you several fixed sizes or you can do a custom size. It may not give you the exact fix you want but it will allow you to size your pics to fit the format we have now on the forums and will make your posts easier to read by the masses.
