Thought it would be a great day, when it turned out a little worse than expected. I went to the club and the drive to the range was closed. I had to make three trips, carrying the rifle and equipment 100 yards to the bench. The road was just to muddy to drive down. It was muddy and with wet sand. It was tough carrying all that through the mud. Anyway after that, I also had to walk back and forth to the backstop to hang targets, through the mud and if it wasn't mud, it was wet sand. Quite the jaunt for an old out of shape fella.
According to the weather cast, it should have been a much better day with the wind. It was much worse then expected and also the direction. It was blowing about 30° from left to right, swirling and coming from the target to the bench.
- Sustained wind.......... 15 mph
- Gusts....................... 22 mph
I shot a couple rounds at 200yds to set the custom turret. I needed about 2" left also from my 100yd shooting at home. Then I made the trip to the 400 yard backstop and stapled up a target. Walked back to the bench and settled down a little, then turned the turret to 400yds, loaded it up and started shooting.
Not to shabby for the first 400yd shoot.
