David,

Just shooting for fun mostly. Got rid of most of my target rifles. Did keep two 52's and two USMC 40X's and a 513T. Waiting for David Valdina to get down for the winter.

SINOXID refers to the priming composition. Have never seen this stuff before.

How did you make out with the wind and rain? Grandson is stationed at MCAS New River. He was told to leave before the storm hit and is being told to stay away for now.

We live in a suburb of Raleigh. We got some wind and about 8 inches of rain over 4 days so we were in good shape. We dodged a big bullet. I feel so sorry for those down southeast. They got it twice in 2 years. I heard this morning that there are 750 roads still closed including part of I40!!!

David,

Everything that I hear from friends in the Jacksonville, Havelock, and New Bern areas is not good. Water still rising, no power and roads are blocked.

200-11x, William Mosely (13), Georgia. Vintage
Kimber 82G Iron #2, 1.3rear rear adj, 2.5 adj front w/6" tube, Eley Team 1054
Rock front rest, rear bag
Sunny, 80degrees, variable winds 2-6 mph
50-3x, 50-4x, 50-2x, 50-2x=200-11x

Congrats on the young one hitting his first 200. He got there scary easy.

I was not going to take that sitting down but I only bested him by a 200-13x. Time to get off the jet ski and back in the saddle.

Second picture, the afternoon sun angle is tough.

My scores for this weekend:
9-21-2018
200/10X, DInghram, Kansas
Remington 513T 1946, Redfield 75 rear, Redfield 63 front, CCI SV
Sinclair Varmint, Edgewood front and their standard rear bag
70 degrees, with light wind @9
1. 50/2X 2. 50/3X 3. 50/2X 4. 50/3X

9-23-2018
198/11X, same shooter and rifle as above
A little windy and 80 degrees. Wind from behind me @5
1. 50/4X 2. 50/2X 3. 50/4X 4. 48/1X
My last target has two touching out in the 9 ring at 11. I have no idea what could have happened. Kind of a shame to ruin what otherwise would have been a nice score. For this kind of shooting, CCI SV does have a few fliers in it. Maybe that wind from behind me? It did kind of pick up a few times. I hope everybody has a good week. David

He capped that first 200 score pretty quick. Different gun.
I think this gets him on the board as Marksman First Class. I got the feeling that that will not hold either. 6 days gets him clean targets.

198-5X, Vintage, Rob Fates Alamo CA 9-30-18
Remington 511 1941 Redfield 75 rear, Lyman 17A front sights
SK Rifle Match
Protektor front, felt-covered 2x4 rear rests
49-2, 50-0, 50-0, 49-3

This rifle was one year older than I was in 1954 when my mother gave it to me with the sights installed by Abercrombie & Fitch in New York and 64 years later it still serves me well. I'm running out of SK ammo, can't buy it locally and live in California so internet purchases are now cut off to me. Time to move?

Nice shooting Rob! It`s nice to see another old timer Remington giving this a try and doing well. After all, this is just for fun and it`s nice to see how well the old ones will do against similar new rifles. About your moving, nobody wants to move, but sometimes after you do move and things settle down, it makes you wonder why you didn`t move sooner. My wife is from Chongqing, China, a city of about 38-40 million people. Earlier this year she went to visit her niece in LA. When she got back, I asked her what she thought of that city. It was a short answer, "It`s filthy", and that`s all she said.

Thanks for the compliment. My 511 was equipped with a Lyman 57RS rear sight like the one on my 521T. But the windage bar was loose and changed both windage and elevation, usually up and left whenever I made a windage change, so I could never get a zero. I had it D&T'd for a Redfield base and scrounged a Redfield 75 sight which is much stiffer and repeatable. I used Redfield Olympic or International sights for Highpower. In the old days you could send a sight back to Redfield in Denver and they would clean it and check it for repeatability for $5. They don't do that anymore...

I haven't shot a clean 200 yet but its fun using my $37 Remington against those Winchester 52's that probably cost $129 new.
