On the same day I shot this .054 I also shot a group larger than .500. I don't remember that one nearly as well.

Ah memories........I recall the shoot, back in the day when the 222 ruled, the 5th 100yd relay was well under way. All other shooters in the relay had finished their rounds. Except two. Ken my shooting buddy and myself. We were leading the pack in score. Both of us very close. Ken ALWAYS won the small group and I usually came out with overall. We were both in the zone. Taking time reading the mirage. Ken would shoot - OOOS and AAAAs from the gallery. Again and again that happened. Neither group was getting any larger. Ken's last shot 'went right in there'.
Being in the 'zone' is like no other feeling.
A fly landed on my target, a good inch and a half from the group. Match or no match..... I get a sly grin on my mug. Meat over paper any day. I brake the Rem 40X 2oz trigger. I see the fly disappear in the 24X Leuy, the exclamation from the gallery was loud.
Targets were pulled. Then scored. I was asked "what went wrong". I replied by asking: "What's the color of the ring around the hole?" With a puzzled look the score keeper said RED. I was a happy man!
