Cayuga Run

Postby Shepard » Sun Jun 02, 2013 1:02 pm

I went up north to Grimstods house in Cayuga NY. Spent the after noon target shooting and dinner. The venison burgers are great, like earing 2 in one they were so big.

I was given some bullets by DevilDog that he was having poor luck with. They were Barnes Long-range X Bullets 200gr LRX Boattail. I only had 8 to test and the range was 100 and 150 yards. The wind was blowing about 20 mph off the lake and the temp was 80 - 90 degrees and it was a beautiful day. I shot 5 into one hole at 100 yards but the 150 yard line was up the hill and had a bit more wind. But the report is this
New Lapua brass
Federal 215 Magnum primers
52 grs of IMR4350
200 gr Barnes LRX BT bullets
3.00 OAL
not crimped

NO KEY HOLING ON ANY ROUND
Ben is working on clearing brush to make a hole between 2 fields adding up to 875 yards. Will be posting some long range stuff soon.

It was once again awesome having Jerry and his wife up for a visit. Jerry it looks like the shooting bench for out in the field will have to move farther up my priority list.

I also had a new toy to shoot. Did this five shot group standing at 50yards. This is a Tu53 and though the bore is really worn it shoot nice enough and has the smothest action of all my unworked guns.

Smyert MkIII shot great for the first ten rounds. Printed this .75in group at 150yds. After that things went south cause my scope rings were not tight enough. This is my bad. I distinctly remember not tightening them enough. Live and learn. Well now I have more spent brass to reload.

Oddly enough my Type 53 is also the smoothest operating Mosin I have ever touched. Thanks for sharing fellas, I was there in spirit.

Saturday was a fun day. Ben came down and we shot up a bunch of bullets. I've decided my next build is going to be a gallery rifle. I don't have any open sight guns so this is my deal -- simple 91/30 with a very strong bore and simple Williams peep sights.

I'm going up to Cayuga on the 13th to shoot the long poke. How long I'm not sure cause Ben has to do the brush removal him self. I wish I was able to help him.

Spending the afternoon shooting sounds good; not so much of an option here in Vegas, afternoon temps are in the 115/120. Can probably cook burgers on the hood of my jeep (we used to cook eggs on jeep willy's hoods, back in the Army days).
Most of our shooting as to be done around 0530, when temps are only in the 90's.
That's a great group at 100 yards :clap:
I will not tell you to have fun, looks like it is already taken care of :thumbup:
Good shooting.
Carpe Diem
