Always nice to win, congratulations.
That's DIPPED? Wow!I won a Ruger American in a raffle in 30-06. It is the most accurate gun I own. Couldn’t stand the black stock so I had it dipped. View attachment 292808
Sounds like a good cause to support. Thank you.Frequently, the grand prize is a buggy horse (a standard bred trotter). I usually buy a couple tickets.
Well, with gas prices being what they are... But oats and hay isn't cheap either!Sounds like a good cause to support. Thank you.
Just out of curiosity, what would you do if you won the grand prize?
I have a Savage axis with black plastic stock. I am thinking about Cericoating it in desert tan. Will post picture when it is done.I won a Ruger American in a raffle in 30-06. It is the most accurate gun I own. Couldn’t stand the black stock so I had it dipped. View attachment 292808
Just a couple of recommendations that might help. Check that the stock and scope mounting screws are tight. Buy several different brands of ammo and shoot 3 shot groups of each. Use a lead sled. Hope this helps as these rifles are usually very accurate with the ammo they like. Good shooting.So I got out to the range this morning. Now, I’ll start by saying the conditions weren’t great: about 30*, a foot of snow on the ground with bright sun and a lot of glare, and very breezy. I was able to get the scope zeroed-ish at 50yards. Seemed like my point of impact was bouncing around a lot. I intended to get it out further with a bunch of different loads, but only got to put about a box of PMC FMJ through it. I had several rifles to zero and time constraints. Add to that moving targets entailed trudging through that foot of snow. Anyway, the rifle shoots nicely and functioned perfectly with the small amount of rounds down range. The turret detents on the Vortex Crossfire II did not feel as positive as those on my other Crossfire II, but the glass was just as clear. Looking forward to getting this rifle out again under better conditions.
Most vendors who dip offer several different wood patterns. Many of my hunting and shooting friends can't believe it is dipped and a couple have since dipped their black plastic stocks.That's DIPPED? Wow!
