Back yard shooting

Postby Grimstod » Sat Jan 18, 2014 2:29 pm

Took some of my hand loads out to shoot at 100yards in the yard. Snow was pretty deep. We have more then I thought.
Image
The one flyer there was def me. I so regret pulling the trigger on that one. I was breathing in instead of out.
Image
The difference in these is that the bullets were loaded about 4thousanths longer. I will have to try the other way to see if there is improvement. I also will do a ladder test to determine optimum powder. Will load some stuff up in these increments next. 53.5, 53.6, 53.7, 53.8, 53.9, 54, 54.1, 54.2, 54.3, 54.4, 54.5
Image
If I discount the one flyer the gun is shooting very good. Perhaps the gun is capable of .25moa but its just me the shooter that is holding it back. I will be doing a lot more shooting in the future to get my form down.
Image
If your wondering why I subtract the .047 that is cause 1 MOA is actually 1.047
You see a MOA is a radial measurement on the radius of a circle. Thus is you shoot a plane that is flat and tai the curvature into count it is actually 1.047 :thumbdown: :yawn:

Mills are easier to understand for me.

Nice shooting! Seeing how tightly the others grouped I would bet it was just a trigger pull problem on that flyer.

Yes I agree. I also need to stop being lazy about adjusting my scope. These really should be dead center. :roll:

I took video of it and am editing it now. Will post it soon.

Looking forward to the video Grimstod. That's some nice shooting just the same, and a good looking rifle you have there! We got some snow down here last night, but not enough to talk about. The ice has been the problem down here this winter.

Thanks Jared. These are my loads. But haven't really experimented yet. Today was just for fun. Its a really nice feeling to see your shots go into the same hole. Really makes me more aware of how sloppy my shooting form is.

Great job if those are your loads. Did you match the powder weight like we had talked about? I would try .2 grains less and .2 grains more. And then take the best of the 3 groups and play with the seating depth some. I bet you end up with a real shooter. I told you not to get to frustrated a while back with her. I knew she could shoot, she just needed a load work. Factory ammo stinks.

Jared

Edit. I shouldn't say end up with a real shooter. You got a real shooter already. :thumbup:

Excellent job Ben. How far are you keeping your bullet off of the lands? I knew you'd take to loading pretty easy. I keep mine .014 off the lands and crimp.

I a. Actually sorta unhappy with lother walther about that one thing. The lands are so far out there. I will try to get emeusremnt to day with my AOL gauge but I am loading theses pretty long. The magazine still cycles fine though just there isn't much brass holding on to them.
