did some shooting this weekend...

I went up and visited Coyboy(centershotrifles.com) who put together my handgun. We met on Saturday morning and got a 600 yard zero before going off to a coldbore shoot. I used exbal to try to get close, after clicking the turret to where exbal said it should be I tried a shot at the steel he had hanging. After a few minor adjustments(1moa) I shot this 3 shot group at 600, this was also my first time attempting a group at this far of a distance.

I think Jim was a little suprised at what they are capable of! Then he let us shoot his 243ai savage and his 338 edge, I will have one someday. Then we went to a local club and shot at the 600 yard target. The conditions were almost perfect, barely any wind. I'm not sure how I did but I'm betting it wasn't that bad... Here is a picture of my Pistol and one of its victims...

At the clods bore shoot I must not have factored enough hold over for the wind. I was 7'' right...

I think it's an 8'' steel plate. We figured it to be right at 1/2 moa.
