Very Happy  Smile 

Went to the range this morning and froze my a$$ off Exclamation  Exclamation It was supposed to be in the mid 40's and sunny. Well it was heavy overcast and a 15 mph wind at my back and in the low 30's. It was pretty cold. Anyway here's the pic for today............

The pic on the right was my first 5 shots. The first 3 was with a .570 ball, .015 pre lubed patch, 90 grs Goex 2F and Remington #11 caps. The 2 shots at the top was with mink oil patches. Everything else was the same except for the patches.
The pic on the left was the same once again except I tried one more mink oil patch and as you can see it joined the other 2 at the top.
The 2 holes at 4 and 5 o'clock was done by the lady shooting next to me. She was shooting a 308 semi auto and just sprayed the area. She apologized. :Bat 
All shooting today was from the 50 yard bench. ( My rifle is AWESOME Exclamation  Exclamation  Exclamation Thanks Jonathan) cowyboy hatoff 
Going back in the morning. Temp is supposed to be 60 cheers

Great shooting! Now that we got some bugs outta her, you'll really go nuts tomorrow on the range with that trigger! LOL. They can be made crazy light, just be careful tomorrow with that new trigger adjustment.

Give some .018" patches a try too if you have any in stock.

Glad shes doing good for you, I honestly didn't expect those results the first time out, I figured you were broken due to all the scope shooting  lol!

Don't get the station next to the "lady" tomorrow. Let someone else deal with her.  No
