Cattleman, that's a very impressive standard. Your Fortner action rifle shoots.

I'm gonna have trouble getting anywhere near those kind of results!

1.25 inches at 100 yards would be about 3.75 inches at 200 yards....Daaaaayyyyyuuuuum!
jaia. Thanks for the kind feedback. I wasn’t expecting much with this lot of Black box Eley.
It was very low wind. 3rd time shooting this rifle. I’m pretty happy with it.

Penage Guy. Thank you. That means a lot.
Shot the Fortner for the 1st time at 50yds at a local money match. Tied the club record.

That was a great start C.
I wouldn't mind at all, to see what ya' can accomplish on a really good day.

I'd also like to see the rest of ya'll give this an attempt or two, or three, or ten...

I don't mind keeping track of the results, as it makes for a great reference of ammo quality.
Especially when I read those claims of "all day long" with cheap bulk ammo.

Your scores will improve, if you turn the Keyboard right side up.

JN...I've been giving serious thought to one upping ye'r pet pic there.
Wouldn't be hard to mount a set of rings and a scope on an old keyboard.

Add an F-Class bipod and it'd be a whole new insult, eh?

I could even convert it into a Fuglie...real easy.

Sound like fun. Do it.

Figured this was a good chance to try a lot of Eley Match that the 1411 didn’t seem to like. No UL gear here. Just a 2 piece, supporting a factory rifle with a couple flags and shot off a picnic table.

Attachment 231291

Low wind. Experimented using my left hand for the trigger. Seemed a lot easier to avoid contact with the rifle (free recoil).

Attachment 231293

Fired 6 fouling shots before moving to the record bull. Fouling shots had 1.7” of vertical before settling down.

Used the bull above for the POA and just held on the dot. 1st five shots were killer then things started to open up....

Attachment 231299

Thanks Jaia. Fun to do. Never would have thought of it on my own.
That is pretty impressive to be able to keep 50 rounds in that tight of a group @100 yards. Nice shooting.

Thank you Nick. Blessed to have a 100yd range on the farm where I can cherry pick conditions. It’s also shielded from the wind to some extent. Much more so then the wide open venues found in the Midwest or further West.

I’d be in SERIOUS trouble in real wind and shooting against the RFBR Pro’s.

Back quiet.
Bruce

Hey Bruce....I've got some news for you. The big wide open ranges are the easiest to shoot even though they sometimes have BIG WIND. The hard ones are those small hole in the trees, down in a hole ranges, back in a corner ranges. Even small winds at those ranges are the worst with the constant switch and twitch.

Vinbyr. That’s good to know! Thanks. Explains why the local club had flags setup at a access road to thier tree lined 50yd range vs near the bench’s.

There’s an inherent truth to the show up and shoot philosophy. Met some really great local guys recently. Plotting a trip to Kettlefoot next year.

Stock 1237 LVT with home brew trigger job. Vortex Diamondback 7-16x40 zeroed at 50yds. Harris style bipod. Rear bag. I could have done better if the POA was a different color and lower.

RWS Target Rifle ammo in the orange and black box.

What's that base grid measure Jim? Half inch? 1 inch?

Looks like the Redhead 100 yard target, 1 inch grid.

4 inches of vertical, 2 inches horizontal for 50 shots.

Yes, 1” grid on a Basspro target. Spreads about 4-1/4 to 4-1/2 vertical. If works light I’ll give it another go tomorrow.
