Glad you liked it.
Was out shooting yesterday and gusts were at least 20mph. The weather channel was reporting winds in my area up to 40mph.
The birds were walking
Since we were at the shooting spot, what the heck - sling some lead down range.
to our surprise, both 75 and 80gr Amx did very well in this gale. I held as much as 16 mins at 800yds but we were able to get bullets close to and hitting a milk jug sized rock.
Of course, we were bounced around with some shots missing by several feet when a strong gust came through but given more time, you would get a feel for how much to lean and it was not hard to get bullets on target.
It was so much fun...
The scale I am using is the Jennings MACK20. Working very well, readily available and very well priced.
Keep it clean and level. When you get the feel of this scale, you can get your Varget loads to within one or two kernels of powder.
Close enough for me
