Amazing hot, very little to no wind, some cloud cover which helps keep the sun from running you back inside, I'd rather be on the lake in my canoe but since that takes 2 people to lift and I didn't have any one to take with me today, I decided it was time to pull out my shooting sticks and head to 100 yards.

Target is 17.25" diameter and is the Birchwood Casey shoot n see target. The orange bulls eye is 3" diameter but due to all the black, your now is now able to focus and clear up that orange bulls eye. It was easy to see at 100 yards without struggling to focus on the bulls eye.

This is NOT my hunting loads gents.

Compressed normally and then HARD. The results were pretty astounding.

Low left is my first 3 shots, normally loading the rifle as I always do. The shots center but strung out, thats compressing the load HARD.

4th shot added to make sure it wasn't me pulling the shots.

What would happen if I reloaded and just let the rifle sit in the shade for maybe 5 minutes? Loaded HARD

So much for this just being a target load, that suckers accurate! Just not accurate enough for my long distance shooting, YET. I plan on seeing if walmart has thicker pillow ticking so I can snug up the fit.
