I had a dreadful start as the wind had changed..

My group was small but 3 inches right..

I couldnt understand at the time why my score was so bad until Norman came back and told me..

It made sense then.

i adjusted a minute right and it was a great line for the 2nd cof of 2v's 8a's then i noticed it was shooting 1/2 inch low..

clicked up..

3rd cof 3v's 7a's 🤩

now we're cooking 😋

4th cof 7v's 3a's is my new PB by 1 vbull 🤩😋

Bolthead said my 3v's 7a's was a smaller group than the cluster around the vbull in the photo 😳20230611_123238.thumb.jpg.c46f3c5363c4f355bcf2daa22eef0f03.jpg

It's harder to shoot it well this time of the year..it was overcast this morning and very little mirage so that helped..

I have a technique that works well for me..

I've had 6v's 4a's a couple of times at 300yds.

It's been bloody roasting this afternoon.

I wouldn't of shot it very well this afternoon

We use the 1 inch vbull.

A 4 inch vbull is way to big.

Used my 24 inch 6.5x47 and 140gr hybrids over 41.5grs of RS62 

I suppose it depends which class you are shooting in. There's never been a 50:10 in G Class to my knowledge

Good shooting either way

I'm not sure what class it would be...

Bipod,optics over 4 mag.

The LPSC is a practical rifle club who wins the Methuen Cup more often than not..

Bradders team beat us a few times..

I shot in the Methuen once but its not for me.

The 6.5X47 really is a sweet shooter. I must admit I was expecting one of your 7 mils. 

I have stuck with the 6.5X47 and will be trying some 140gr bullets in a barrel I have just collected. I have been shooting 130gr for years. But want to see if the. 140’s will fly fast enough to make the most out of the BC advantage.

According to my bal cal the 140gr hybrids were doing 2757fps out of my 24 inch barrel.

41.5grs of RS62 comes up the neck..

If I pour it slowly it settles down better..

A drop tube would be better as the powder would compress less..

I double stroke the press arm to make sure bullet is seated right down.

I suspected the turret moved as undid them or I nipped em up last time 🙄.

Only thing I don't like about the sightrons is that torque screw that secures the turret

3/4's took poi a tad too far. Took off a 1/420230614_211719.thumb.jpg.f67ac80e2603db4da46b2c9fbedefd17.jpg
