Updated the rules guys.
You can now post one target per class. So if you want to shoot rimfire and centerfire and post a target for each, go for it.
Desert Tech SRS with TS 308 conversion
TacOps Tac 51 .260 on Surgeon action
Shooting it on your smart phone screen, now that would be impressive
Not my best shooting but the only chance to participate this month because after my holiday I have to sit in class on saturdays.
Rifle: rem700 5r, S-B 4-16x50, .308 #80972 Hornady 168 gr BTHP MATCH, shot from bipod and sandbag,
Temperature was below freezing point and it was a little bit hard to see the target because of the poor weather conditions. The mildot reticle of my S&B was not the best choice because it covered the dots.
I fired 5 rounds before those on the target but I didnt make any adjustments on my scope and ended up hitting a little bit low.
I'm happy to see people putting away their egos and posting real world groups. Hopefully as we go throughout the year we can see improvements from everyone.
Got the targets. My wife stopped by a print shop on the way home Friday. I will give it a try tomorrow with my CZ.
I will not be shooting off of a bench. Had some weather recently. Shot offhand at 50 with my AR today.
I need lots of practice.
This is mine. My dad and I built this rifle together.
Remington 700 action, trued, lapped locking lugs, refaced bolt, surface ground recoil lug.
Badger ordinance bolt knob
Krieger MTU 10, 28 inches long, 1 in 9 twist, chambered in 7mm-08.
Timney 510 trigger
Bell and Carlson A5 fully adjustable stock, skim bedded
Weaver 20 MOA base
TPS TSR steel rings
Swfa SS 16X42 Mil/Mil scope
Shot off a bench with a front rest and a monopod. 114 yds. 12° F.
168 grain SMK reloads.
First group was me getting settled in and the last bull was me shivering my ass off. The rifle is obviously more capable of shooting tiny groups than I am.

Looks like 3 in one elongated hole for the second group.
Good shooting and great Father Son project.
