At 71 it's hard to see a grey target with iron sights on a cloudy day, going to have to get to find fluro targets here in Aussie.

I lived in Cody Wyoming for a year and "FAST FOOD" there is Pronghorn Antelope. The things were everywhere. The high school football field, Walmart parking lot, my back yard, etc. Found four of them relaxing in a Taco Bell drive through one afternoon...

Stanforth,
 
Missed your Q on previous page until now;
 
I'm from near Ormesby, Nr Middlesbrough. North Riding. Sounds like you're from south of the Humber....

Spot on... Grimsby but I left there 50 years ago to try (unsucessfully) to bring culture to the south.

Its not improved since - it is still 'Grim'.
We looked at putting our boat into the harbour but it was too big for them to handle so we had to go to Hull.

Grimsby (around the harbour) is just a derelict wasteland of old industrial buildings for about a mile in any direction - tried to walk to the chippy but gave up as when we came out of the old industrial area we entered the derelict and boarded up shopping and housing streets.
There must be some nice areas but we didn't find them.

That's awesome shooting and awesome accuracy! Thumbs Up

You folks do realize of course that such groups are impossible with a Lee Enfield because it has a two-piece stock and is rear locking action and some other obscure reason.  Wink

I have a No4 that shoots pretty damn good too (can't claim 3/4 MOA 10 shot groups though since I can't get any more of the bullets that shoot so well to try with).  I can put the bullet on point of aim out to 200m though.  I can also claim 10 shot 1 1/4 MOA groups all day long with a 1902 rifle fitted with a No4 barrel without any  group centre drift.

I even achieved MOA with an old and worn Martini 303 carbine barrel on a 1896 Lee Enfield action with the original Martini sights!  Paper patched bullets to suite the worn chamber, admittedly.  I don't remember how many shots I fired though.  I normally go ten shot groups but I can't be sure in this case.  I had good eyes when I did that.  Sadly, I lost the target so I can't prove it to y'all.
