Had a great day at the range guys. It was in the low 40's at 9 when it opened. No skeeters, flies or bees. Sunny day with very little wind. 
I was shooting my .58 with a Hornady R/B, .015 patch with mink oil applied generously, CCI MAG Caps and 85 Grains 2F Goex. I bench rest from the 25, 50 and 75. Here's how it went down.


1st target were the 1st 3 shots at 25 yards. After covering those holes I used the same target, after adjustments, lower left. Top right is the first target at the 50. The green target is at 75 yards. This old timer gave me that green target because he said at our age green is easier to see. First shot was at 12 o'clock and then I adjusted from there. I took that same target from the 50 and shot it a few more times. My POA is at 6 o'clock at the 8/9 ring. As you can see if I aim dead on I hit a few inches high. I did shoot at the 125 yard steel plate and my .58 will bang it every time. I know now that I'm on at 25,50,75 and 125 yards. Can't ask for anything more.
Bring on the deer.

Nice shooting Ray!  Did you try shooting with the old glasses to compare against the new ones?
