baldeagle713,

Do any duty on CV's? All my afloat time was TAD, but I averaged over 180 days/yr at sea for my last 10 years (none of it at the pier), on CV's: Midway, Coral Sea, Big John, America, Teddy; CG's: Arkansas, Leyte Gulf, Vincennes, Reeves; DD Oldendorf, FF Francis Hammond and a couple of SSN's. The CV/BG/TG commanders didn't want to go anywhere without us cryptotechs. Last overseas duty was flying recce (about 750 hrs worth in less than 8 months as a Russian / Serbocroatian specialist) with VQ-2 over the FRY from Souda Bay.

But to get back on topic, yup I plan on getting some groundhogs next year. But this winter I'm going for coyotes.

My time in the Nav was the best part of my life.

I just recenly received the NEF handi rifle in .223 with the heavy barrel for Christmas. All I had available was a cheap 3x9 Bushnell that doesn't work right that I stuck on the gun. Once I got it sighted in I switched to my reloads Nosler 50grs along with 26.5 grs. of Win 748. It shot a three quarter inch group at a hundreds yards and I was pretty siked about a $200 gun that shoots that good.
By the way the trigger out of the box is one of the nicest I have pulled.

Just wondered if anyone had shot the handi rifle in 25-06? I just got one today with a target barrell and a leupold 3x9 at a local gun shop for less than $250 for the pair. If I don't quit buying so many guns, I am going to have to fight for them in court during a property settlement.

Before any body doubts the validity of the calim this guy is making, every once in a while a economy rifle out performes all the litany we endure to make our rifles and loads perform at sub 1/2 MOA.

I have an old rem 788 in 308 that when I activly used it, and I knew very little of reloading it would group less than 1 inch at 300 yards regularly. I didnt ream primer pockets, I didnt trime cases or even neck size. I used soft point bullets and had cheap relaoding equipment.

The only chuckle I get is how this sometimes is the reality! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
