............Wink..........


I bought 900 rounds of this ammo almost two years ago.
It has some steam and I had to come down two clicks from my 174g SMK zero.

Cheers

That's good shooting for 200 yards.
I would love to get that group at next weekends competition. But I'd be dreaming!

That Savage has always been a great shooter. Wink
Things should tighten up as I get used to the recoil from the '68 HXP and now I have some HXP brass  to reload.Clap

I'll be shooting the No4Mk1/2 in the standard Service bolt action class and my No1MkIII* with AG Parker dioptre in the modified class.
However I've not had any opportunity to practice this year, due to the renovation of our club. First time out was the Department (County) championship). Next weekend is the Regional.



This sight is similar age to the rifle; which dates from 1929. (Temporary screw fitted for test in this photo)

Nice ride Zed. You should drive over to the UK and shoot at Bisley at the Trafalgar matches.
