    Im busy 24/7 Fear I cant spend the time to drive to a range with 100m to shoot centerfire (its always a ~4h trip or more). Hope I can shoot a rimfire target this month.

    Today was the day. A miserable, cold, rainy day. Left my house an hour and a half before I arrived at the range which is only 25 miles away. Freeway all the way except for 3 miles on my end and one mile on the other. Around here people drive in the rain like it was snow. First drops on the windshield and they drive like they've never been in a car before.

    Regardless, here't the target:




    Dots below were just some warm up/sighters. In case anyone didn't notice, the target is soaking wet.

    You were right Cliffy, a hard target.

    Don't know how the weather is around other parts of the country but it's finally warmed up here. Expected to be 80+ today which makes for perfect mornings and evenings at the range.

    A week and a half left. Time to "get 'er done". Those that have submitted targets for the first 4 months need to get one in so they can have one for every month of the year.

    I finally got a chance to get out and shoot today. I was doing pretty good until the last shot, and I have no idea what happened there as I don't think I pulled it at all. Oh well, still much to learn...

    Thanks Deadshot for helping out this month.

    Remington 700 SPS Tactical in .308W, shot at 100 yards prone with a bipod and rear bag. Using 168 A-Max bullets behind 44.0 gr of Varget.

    I'm hoping I even get a day to shoot this month. I may sneak away from work on Friday or something.
    I redefined trust between my wife and I. Bought her a gun, hand loaded ammo for it, showed her how to shoot it, and made her the beneficiary on my life insurance.
