50 Yard Vintage and Unlimited Iron Sight Matches for May 2020



Log in to see fewer ads
Sorry for the late post. My wife and I are in the middle of moving to a patio home. Been a exciting last 3 weeks. Put house on market and it sold in one day for $8,000 more than we asked. Six showings in one day and 6 offers. Still waiting on the patio home to be finished, mid June.

A little rambling on there.

Same as in the past, post your score and maybe a photo of your setup for everyone to see.

Maybe we will see more shooters this month, with the easing of the lockdowns some of you have experienced.

Our range just re-opened this week. As soon as the crowd thins out, I'll give it a try.

Corona still hasn’t slowed down the shooting here plenty of range time in past two months. Been playing with rifles and sights.

It is shooting as well as the Mk II now Ed, conditions have just been horrible in these parts. A few tweaks here and there and it come around.

Hank Smith (Pastprime), Salisbury, NC
Remington 540X, Redfield 75 (Dogleg) rear, Redfield 63 front. Center-X.
Caldwell Tackdriver bag front, Bald Eagle bag rear.
Sunny, 70 F, wind 1-4 mph from 7 o'clock. Best day for shooting in a while here.

50-4x, 50-3x, 50-5x, 50-4x = 200-16x

It has taken several months to find the trigger parts and sights to restore this rifle to what I've read is the original configuration although apparently there were several different rear sights used. This is my first target with it at 50 yards and it looks like it will be OK of the shooter will learn to put the groups in the center of the bull.......
