I was told that
unless I shoot "uninterrupted video," (I'm dishonest,) of a 5 shot group, (what I do is unacceptable,) with my Howa, my marksmanship is questionable.
Since I can't afford to waste 30-06 supplies to entertain those that haven't done what they expect me to do; and since I needed to test a summer load for the Smith & Wesson, I used the 357.
6 Shots, 357 Mag, 300 Yards
The second shot seems to be very close on the left side, just high of center; that will be the first shot of my 5 shot group. This load passes my test... do I pass yours?
I await your uninterrupted 5 shot 300 yard video...
On a lighter note, it is another personal best; today was the first time I hit at 300 yards with a pistol. Shots 3, 4 and 5 looks like about a 4 inch group. The last 5 seem to be about a 6 inch group. I'll do better next time.
Pistol: Smith & Wesson 686, 357 Mag
Bullet: Hornady 158gr HP-XTP
Powder: VIHT N 110
Primer: CCI 550 Mag
I hope posting range reports isn't becoming a problem.
To be clear. I don't post range reports to impress people; I post them to show what specific firearms are capable of. I post them to show what the cheapest equipment will do. I post to show the benefits of reloading. My 92 year old Eddystone has a shot out barrel but still shoots .75MOA because I have ammo tailored especially for it. My 30-30 shoots .5MOA at 300 yards, that isn't supposed to be possible.
I don't do anything different than anyone else. Just Saturday I let someone that never shot a scoped rifle before and never shot beyond 40 feet, use the Howa to take one shot at a 1.25" target at 300 yards. With just 2 minutes of coaching, they missed by a fraction of an inch. There is nothing I do that anyone else can't do just as well or much better.
Debate isn't "uncivil" behavior. Pointing out illogical reasoning is a legitimate counter argument.
That is the problem with internet forum mods, they rarely understand what constitutes legitimate, honest and civil debate. They reward the trolls and annoy the people genuinely trying communicate.
I don't really like this place anyway, have fun with your power trip.
