    Sometimes things just work, chur

    Went to the range this arvo with Plopshot & Shane'o, thought I'd better put some rounds down the spout of my virgin Browning Maral 308, new scope fitted ( VX6 3-18 x 50 with firedot windage plex ) mean, so algood to go

    I take 3 lots of pre-loaded bombs, one for a Browning Shorttac I had, one for my Weatherby when it was still a 308 & some heavy old 180g loads for some rifle ( can't remember who lol )

    Try the Weatherby load first ( 155g A-maxes, 47g 2208 ) pretty much on paper at 50 straight away, adjust then out'a 110y do a nice 4 shot group ( off the bench, not my preferred option or where I do my best work ) works out to .65moa, farken stoked load development & sighting in sorted in 5 mins, Chur

    Got'a love it when things come together




    PS- got a couple of laughs from Johno too
    Shoot it, root it & then BBQ it !!!
