Well I drove to the woods knowing that Richard had already arrived to find a nice trio of dead grey squirrels ready for use as fox bait.
Richard was ready for a zero session to check the factory ammo he had bought against the handloads I had made for him.
We knew the factory ammo was printing slightly left and fired a group with the handloads to confirm.
The ammo printed pretty much where we expected it to at 100 yards shot from the bonnet of the Vitara:
I adjusted an inch to the right and he fired another group, this was too far and we clicked back two clicks left which can be seen here showing the two groups, right hand as the first and left hand as the second:
I got the shooting mat out and fired off a couple of batches of loads for my 7.62 x 39:
The target despite its size was difficult to clearly see with the bright sunlight and subsequently the group opened up. I use an illuminated reticle and so had another go but its a close range woodland rifle so I wasnt dissapointed:
Richard is preparing to take his DSC1 so we simulated the shooting test,
we engaged a Roe sillhouette at 100 yards prone, 60 yards sitting and 40 yards standing.
I was very happy with his shooting. Now to lend him the CD so he can practise those 300 questions.
