On Monday, I decided to shoot my .17 HMR, then I thought to myself Since I hadn’t shot the new rifle since I sighted it in why not check it out? The new one, a .243, hasn’t been exposed to any hunts, yet, but it’s lightweight and from the sight in, handles quite well and shoots where you hold it!
First up was my .17 HMR and from 50 yards I put all 15 shots in the 10 ring. Of course, I forgot to take my camera along, so no picture.
Next up, and last, was the new .243. Having sighted it in at 100 yards, I held on the red dot and here are the results.
On my way out to hunt Monday afternoon, I walked by the shooting range and took this picture of the grouping.
I musta’ pulled off on one, but still not bad shooting for an old guy!
