Its only one that I could tell for sure that was touching. The other was close, but not quite- I didn't think it was enough, so I just left off.
I used some of that German MEN surplus when I bought a couple cans  back when it was around.
Afterwards when I went home and cleaned the bore I looked and realized the FS was left of a little pencil mark I had left on the base, about one and half blade width.
It was calling for rain so I just grabbed my stuff and headed out to the range to get an entry in.
I was going to grab a better sling that I move around to some different rifles and be better prepared but ran with what was left on that rifle.
The upper loop is on the last set of holes with all the clothes I had on under my coat and I swelled up some from weight I put on when my legs started going bad.
The old girl was laughing at me but we had a nice trip over and back. Grabbed a coffee and all that.
Thanks for getting the virtual match started, it was nice to get out and make some holes again.
I'm going to get some others out of the dungeon and go back again real soon.

Range time this morning was less than what I had hoped for. The temperature was okay but the 12 mph wind was playing heII with the target board. I used the Faux Parker Hale with the 7.62mm 2A1 Ishapore barrel.  The scope is a Nikko Stirling 4-12×50 with 25yd - infinity focusing. The chosen load used was 42.0grns of IMR4895,  168grn Hornady BTHP bullets,  No. GM215M primers, and Lapua cases set to an AOL of 2.750"
For this submission I first did my sighting in on some shoot n see targets.  I continued on getting the barrel hot and fouled. I used up forty rounds to accomplish that task. The last ten rounds were used on the SR-1 target with 8 shots in the X ring and two in the ten ring. I did not flinch on the ten ring shots. The target board was moving back and forth with that 12 mph wind. The pic through the scope is for reference only showing what 100 yards looks like for me with the scope set at 6x.
This is a 100-8x score and for any future submissions on my part,  I will not use a red sticky on the X...

I am in.  It will bench supported, my range does not allow the Prone position.  They Will allow standing.  Go figure.
