Re: Gun for Grandaughter

I dont know if they dont fit me or what but I cant shoot an encore to save my life. I have a 223 and 25-06 and neither one I can shoot good in hunting conditions. The 25-06 I can normally hit a ground squirrel at around 200 but past that they are safe. My 223 is a complete joke in that I can get bullets to touch some days then others I cant hit a freightliner at 100yrds. and as soon as I bring the 223 into the field I might as well be throwing rocks. They have aluminium bases. Could this be the problem or am I just a tard. Thanks for any help. Im not sure if I spelled aluminium right.

IF you reload for that 25-06 try downloading it a tad to 243 levels. Thats what I would do. Then you wouldn't have to buy a new rifle.

Jeeeeez, I am to damn skinny. I am 20 years old, 6'2 and I weight 135lbs. I cant seem to gain any weight since I got out of high school, actually I lost 10lbs. Working hard made me tone up, not actually gain weight.

Re: Gun for Grandaughter

Thanks remingtonman_25_06. Can you think of any thing I am doing wrong with the 223. They're the same barrel just different calibers and as soon as it comes to shooting in the field I cant hit any thing with the 223. Should I be holding tightly, lightly, Just give up or what. Not bragging at all but normally I can hit ground squirles up 300 or farther in field conditions with my other guns that shoot as good as this 223 off the sand bags. Since I can't hit any thing with my 223 my 243 is getting its rounds put through it.
