I've had this problem since I was a kid. Target panic! It even bad with my bow...move to shooting a traditional long bow for a while in the early 80's to over come it. Put fur on it or some odd shape or rock...no problem...put a round spot on it and I'm doomed! I kind of high jacked a thread yesterday with issues at the range. So I decided to start my own. The range I like to shoot at has steel at 400 and 600 yards. Nothinged extra to shoot them, but you have to qualify to shoot at those distances. I have tried several times to put 5 in a 5" "dot" at 300yrds and always pulled one. They don't police those targets so I can always go shoot without incident. Lart Saturday on a 600yd deer target that has a flapper plate in the kill zone...I hit it on my first shot, next shot was one inch low, next shot was between this two shots. It was two wet to walk down there, but I had videod the shots so I knew where I had hit. 4" group max...most likely a little less. So the gun shoots...my loads are decent at least. But I can't shoot 5 in a 5" spot! Yesterday I had three qualifing targets set up, plus one to zero on. First shot on the first two were way out of the white so not need to waset the ammo. I did shoot the second target a few more times hoping I could get it done on the tlast target. I left a three shot group that was well under one inch to to shot the last target before they closed. After a little cool down, the first shot was finally perfect...right under the crosshair! The second shot was not bad but we'll away to the right. The range faces due north and we had a south-southwest wind that was gusting. I'm playing down the second shot as wind pushed. Shot three is 6 o'clock, very low but in the white. I was mad I had dove into the gun again so I fired shot 4 right away but it too was low, but still in...need one more shot. To be honest this was the first time I had got this close. I always pull the third shot ALWAYS! So I settle down...let the gun cool...did 4 dry fires that were perfect. No movement, no heart beat, nothing! Load a round in the chamber but don't close the bolt for one last trigger pull before the shot. Must have jerked the hell out of it because shot 5 in out of the white in the orange! Really mad at myself this time I grab a round and fire it. Don't even check to see where it hit. Then walked down to pull my targets to go home. If you call I never mentioned two shots in the same hole...shots one and six are in the same hole...at 12 o'clock above the center of the bull...exactly where the gun is sighted!
