    got out today finally after being stuck in the house with mono this week for some shooting at the usual spot. Had some good results with shooting a 547y group, and 425y group, also was on at 735y too. Nothing out of the ordinary but some fun!

    Thats good to hear, a friend of mine has the same scope, but we have not used it too much yet. They seem to be a good bang for buck.

    Don't worry about it, my plates as of late look like swiss cheese. Those big 338's pack a whack way out there. The 300 RUM's were just puckering the plates and the Edge & AX blew right on threw.

    Id rather spend money on powder and bullets rather than good steel plates.

    I guess that I am lucky, I can just get steel from the scrap bin at work. A few minutes with the welder and presto, new target to blaze at.
