A group shot last weekend out of a 24" match grade Savage/Black Hole barrel at 100 yards. Bullet was a Berger 95 VLD at 2993.

Group for the five shots was an even 0.200.  I just got in a 26" and after I wring out the 260 Remington guess which one gets my attention!!   I need to find another action so I can shoot them in tandem.

Nice work on that one, Did BHW get the tooling to be able to do longer barrels?

This is a target shot with a different 243 LBC BHW/SAVAGE barrel using the same 95 grain Berger VLD. This barrel was a 26" version. Maybe that's why it opened up so much. Five shots this time also.

0.525-0.243= 0.282. One of my favorite performers day in day out in an AR or a bolt gun.

I found my verification target when I was sighting the rifle in for the match I won earlier in the week at the Senior Olympics in a 500 yard F-Class match.. This was at 100 yards.

You can Caleb. Just practice and trigger time. That actually was a poor group with this gun. A real shooter would have had them way under 0.4. The  secret is just time and effort. Bench shooting is acquired. I read a couple books on it years ago and started learning. The rest started with a 50 foot indoor range in the basement my Dad built me when I was seven.

I haven't said much about this one lately but I  put a better trigger in it a few months ago and I needed to sight it in for a 500 yard match last weekend.  I had had the scope off and the rifle out of the stock so I knew it might be a crap shoot.  I wanted to conserve the ammo so fired one round at 25 to get on paper. It was about 1" low so I was close with a bit right impact. I moved the target out to 100 yards and they were both a bit low.  Dialed in 1/2 MOA up and put three down range. Up and down was good to go but I added 1/4 left and called it good. When I got to the match my dope said 8.75 MOA come ups at 500.  I dialed in 9 MOA and let one fly. It was 1" above the X ring. Down one increment and the next was an X.  The match went well with a final score ten off the Masters score I want for the year.   It's there I just have to read it!! .I did lose two points when I had a road runner run out on the range just as I started shot #40 down range. To much situational awareness I guess.  The road runner did not hang around for shot #2. BTW.

Even with this group  I still hit the dirt.

Nice shooting. 

 

You bring up the road runner.....when I was developing loads last year I had my target fairly low one day and the doves were eating about ten feet in front of it. Their heads were about bulls eye level when walking and I would wait for them to move enough to shoot. I sent about ten rounds right over their backs and they never spooked.
