Not a great score but will get the month started.
I did get a plug gage as well as an Eagle Eye gage finding my scores to be a bit lower than I had thought using just my old eyes.

My entry for April 2021

Factory 25 yd.
chuck40219
CZ 457 AtOne 24" barrel, CCI AR Tactical , Score 1835
Small front rest, Protektor rear rest, Shooters Edge 3x9 scope
Sunny, 68* wind out of N at 10mph variable with gust to 15mph.
Had a great time today. I am trying to set this little CZ up for the RFC CZ 25yd scope match. There are requirements for this match, I will let you look them up. The main one that I am working on now is the 9 lb. weight limit. Found this little scope on top of the gun safe, it weights 13 oz., great but parallax is set to 50yds. so thought I would try to adjust it down to 25 yds. Well I could not get it set right, so I shot the target anyway. Think I will get one that one of the shooters on the RFC Cz 25yd shoot recommended.

That's my story and you know the rest.

Great targets Robert. Setting the bar high early in the month.

Thanks Chuck. Now we just need to get the rest of the group back on board for April.

Shorty123 04-13-2021 07:42 AM

Nice job fellows. I hope to get a target in. Things just got so busy here with the weather change and the outdoor work. 16 acres to take care of.

WOW! I have a hard enough time taking care of our postage stamp subdivision size back yard!

Unlimited 4-14-21
 
Unlimited 25 yd.
chuck40219
Winchester 52D, Old Eley Match, Score 2350
Bald Eagle front rest, Protektor rear rest, Sightron 10x50x60 set at 30
Raining , 46* when I left, wind out of NW at 7 - 10 mph

I do not do well when the temp is below 65 or so. The ammo is left over boxes when I tested for benchrest. The scope is an older Sightron I pulled off of a F class rifle I have. The rifle is a Winchester 52D built in 1963. Now if I could get my act together I might be able to turn in some good scores.

Nice target Chuck and nice Rifle. Mine is a 62 with the earlier C trigger. I bet you have the better D Trigger. I still shoot mine with Irons.

Thank you

Naw it still has the older trigger. The other 52D has the newer trigger.

I shot irons with mine before, when I could see them. I am still waiting on getting my cataracts removed by the VA.

Nice shooting, Chuck.
Raised the bar another notch!

A little better one target at a time.
I don't know what I was doing different but shot this one at 2400 then the next one was 2150. (Looks like the first one was luck but I will take it.)

I got a new sporter bag for the SEB Mini so I am no longer using the 3" bag rider I had fabricated. Only downside is I have to remember to check level for each shot as this bag has just a touch of play. After getting home I made up some delrin shims to tighten it up so will see how it works next time out.

Gone be hard keeping up with you. Don't know if I have the energy.

Great target. Keep up the great shooting.

It would be great if others would join us.

Chuck40219

Pipes1 04-16-2021 07:54 PM

Thanks Chuck.
We need to keep it going until the rest of the group comes back on board.

I am new to the shooting sport and had never been to a range until I purchased the CZ last November. As a wildlife photographer my investment in camera equipment makes it little difficult to justify adding another activity but I am definitely hooked. Now if I could just get the wife to agree to the same kind of money I have spent on wildlife photography, I have a bucket list rifles that would be fun to own. (Since wildlife photography is my business, she is a little more understanding on that front ... LOL)

Photography
 
This is funny, I keep running into photographers in the shooting sports. I started in photography in 1967 while in high school. Weddings and that sort of thing. Then Uncle Sam said he needed my help in winning a war, so I took care of that for him. Then went on to my military job as a photographer. After he did not need my help anymore I went to work for the army core of engineers. Then from there I went to work as a commercial photographer. Got tired of art directors, went to work for myself running a e4 and later a e6 lab. along comes Billy Clinton and he outlaws all wet lab processes in gov. work. Big push in digital. E6 goes out of favour within 6 months. Then on to digital printing. A large part of the printing was for wildlife photographers.

I am retired now and tired.

I remember those days!
Early 70s in a small apartment having to set up the darkroom in the only bathroom. The challenge was fun and truly rewarding but I wouldn't go back to film again.

Pipes1 04-21-2021 09:59 AM

Where did everyone go? This month is winding down with only two shooters! I was counting on this one as I can't get into most of the RFC matches with my CZ 457 Precision Chassis.

chuck40219 04-21-2021 10:03 AM

I can only hope they are waiting for better weather.

Just swamped with work here since the weather change with 12 acres. Haven't even had a chance to shoot the 100 yard Irons which I host. Tough time of year. And snow and wind today.

LeeJ 04-21-2021 02:51 PM

John, I have every intent on shooting this match but weather and recovery (going extremely well) have reduced my typical attempts at putting the hole in the right places. Snow here today and just above freezing. Hoping to hit the range this weekend.

Afraid me or the rifle did not do so well in the chilly air.

Nice shooting Jack. At 40 degrees I would need two pairs of gloves covered by fluffy mittens!

LeeJ 04-26-2021 03:07 PM

Good shooting Jack. I only hope to do that good.
