    I just had to tell someone that could appreciate this.

    The day before yesterday I was trying out my newest bullets, the Hornady FTX, made especially for lever actions. I had a bit of a problem when the cows invaded my rifle range so I had to take the last shot of 3, the next day.

    I was pretty pumped because I was working on a 2.5 inch group, all I had to do was get that one bullet between the other 2 and I would have my best 300 yard group ever! My best used to be a little over 6 inches at 300 yards.

    Here are the results,

    and here is a video of the last shot.

    Here are the first shots.

    Not bad for a 30-30 with no scope.

    I love those bullets!

    ha, when I first read the post... I was thinking that it was decent shooting but not worth making such a fuss about... then I relized it was done with a 30-30 and no scope....

    GREAT JOB!

    :p

    I had a scope. After my 20th shot it died... I was going for my first group zeroed at 300 yards; the 19th and 20th shots since its installation were 3/4s of an inch apart... the scope never held a zero again.

    I am trying another.

    I've given up on scoping my model 94 since it's side mount and the two lines only cross once. I'm still considering a peep.

    Nice shooting.

    Interesting "gong" I have a pile of those in my shop I used to use all the time. I think your use is better and I would likely use them more!!!
