Got a couple of guns shoot in !
I am a member of 2 different gun clubs. The closest one is mostly a trap shooting club and only has 2 shooting benches? On Monday i went there at 9 am and there were 6 guys waiting for benches to shoot from. So i headed to the other club. It is 15 miles further away. This is a rifle club with 14 benches and no one was there. Had the place all to myself. I don't like being at a crowded shooting range as it seems like you have to rush so some one else can shoot!
I had 4 guns to try to shoot. 2 30-06's,a 30-30 Marlin and a new 308.
The 2 30-06's didn't take any time as they were still shot in from last year and we had shot them a few time earlier! The Marlin i started at 50 yards as i had to load some shells for it and forgot what load it was using. The tag i had it written on had gotten lost? Then i found the load sheet i had for it and loaded up a box and had it with me. That darn gun surprised me! At 50 yards it was almost dead on,a little high but a very good 3 shot group? I tried it at 100 at it was dead on but a little low. I know from years of shooting that that was as good as it is going to get and just left it as it was!
NOW,that 308!!!!!! I have tried a bunch of different loads and bullets thru it and i swear that gun just hates me? I fired 2 rounds and looked thru my spotting scope and there were 2 in the bulls eye. I am ready to do the happy dance! YEA ! But the next round went left by about 4 inches,the next one low by the same and a couple more went else where.I done all the stuff you do and checked the rings for tightness and the action screws. Shot it again and just as bad as before. Thank heavens i was alone at the range !!!!!!!! People think Trump has a foul mouth ????? The darn squirrels all ran away!!!!!!!!
I gave up and packed up and headed home.
