Bustin\' Rocks Took the kid (he's about half my age so that makes him a kid) to the range yesterday to get him some trigger experience. Was fun. Rifle is a Lilja bbl'd 270 win on a Brazilian 1908 Mauser w/a 10X SS scope. Shooting was w/bipod and rear beanie bag of my own design. Objective was to get him some trigger time and to validate the drop chart. Lesson learned: Don't rest the bipod on cement slab. Hits were a mil off and random. As soon as I noticed that the bipod was on the cement pad it took a bit of convincing to move it up onto the dirt. Finally I won the argument. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif Lesson learned: When you get up an move around then reset up you had best remember what "the" shooting position "feels" like. He says "why is the rifle jumping different". I grin... Practice Practice Practice till you can make the shot from any position...... When bipod was on the dirt the drop chart was spot on. Shot at meters 200/300/400/500. Used two clicks for the wind and hold-overs per the drop chart. Was impressed w/how that 140 Hornady was busting head sized lava rocks. Not like the 338 but still impressive. Another session at the range then we head to the Blackfoot river canyon where the ranges are alonger, rocks easy to spot and wind becomes more of a challenge. Was a good afternoon.
