I will preface this by stating we had a 7mph crosswind this morning. My target load was the Hornady 174 grn BTHP,40 grn Norma 202,Hornady cases,and WLRM primers. The very first shot was in the upper left of the red,second shot identical height but to the right. All three ten shot groups had the bullets touching at some point. The spread was getting noticable on the third and final group. It took 50 minutes to complete. Ten minutes of live fire,ten minutes of cease fire. One minute between shots. So, without further adieu.

Great result's Goosic. The scopes your are fitting; are they new production? 
I've heard mixed report's about these; but the ones you've fitted seem to be spot on!
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

 I do not know who makes them Zed. They are new production. I've been getting them from Numrich Gun Parts out of New York. The horizontal and lateral lines never lose their zero. The bracket can be back cut on the forward thumb screw area on the inside to help with alignment,it allows for that.

HT. Thank you,I do feel good. I am a very good shot. Trained by the best. However,the rifle is the star here. It did exactly what it was designed to do. I actually give credit to the two groove deeper rifling in conjunction with the Boattail hollow points being used than anything else.

Awesome shooting No. 4 Goosic.  Proof that the two groove barrel shoots!  Hasn't beaten my No. 4 MkI/3 with BSA five groove 0.75 inch 10 shot group, but it might yet if you shoot it more Smile

How many shot's were needed to adjust the new scope to point of aim= point of impact?

I actually wasn't even trying for any sub MOA groupings. I was just pointing the rifle in the same area and squeezing the trigger. If you look closer at the first target,after I figured out where the bullets were going to hit after the first two shots that look like eyes. Before I ruined it you can still make out the smile I made. I can target shoot with the best of them britrifles. That however, was not what I at one time was paid to do. The main reason for this post was to show what the scoped rifle is capable of doing and,what I as a amateur gunsmith am capable of doing. Nothing more nothing less. I had arranged for me to be at the range most of the day. I had two hundred rounds of ammo with me. After the third target and after thirty rounds of bullets all struck within the bullseye,there was,for me,absolutely no reason to shoot any longer. I showed to myself that I can build a rifle that shoots just as it should. I have no issues competing in a shooting match,at which point I'd gladly submit my sub MOA groups to my competitors. This was just me getting a feel for my rifle and getting it sighted in properly. If you have a cmp match coming up in January please,let me know and I will drive out to you and you and I can shoot together. I'll bring all my rifles...

Goosic, I have a better idea.  Bring that Faux No. 4(T) and you and I will shoot it in the CMP Vintage Sniper Match; I'll bet we win.
