Got bored. Was going to mow the yard, no gas.
OK. I'll go out a shoot a few rounds.
B-27 at 3, 5, 7, 9, 10, 12 and 15 yards, 2 rounds each except 3 at 15.
Nature reserve Tree Woodland Forest State park

I took pictures at each range, but I'll just post the final result.
I still think I need to tweak the front sight a bit, or just remember to correct my aim at 15.

Got the gas after shooting. Mowed the yard.

Decided to try bench rest at 15 yards to see if it's the sights or me.
Guess it's me. Need more practice at 15.
I got a little jittery in the hands towards the end, too much coffee I guess.
A few shots low.

There ARE 15 holes there, even though it looks like 13.

I can shoot in my backyard but the scenery isn't to that nice. I have a section of cotton field surrounding my target. .

But it's nice to be able to step out and fire a few rounds when the mower is outta gas :)

This, X10^93rd. I had to drive 70 miles one way to shoot in 3" thick mud last weekend. It cost me $10 to get the mud off my truck.

I'm getting sick of Colorado X10^93rd.

I figured I should try a little closer and see how I do.
10 yards this morning.
Black circles are 124gr. XTP and the unmarked are 125gr. LRN.

Next I'll move out to 12 yards, then when I am satisfied there, out to 15 again.

It is a lot of fun.
Figuring out where to put the sights to hit the center is challenging, especially with old age jitters.
I think I need to relax more and take more time between shots.

So 12 didn't work out to well.
Back to 10 for a few.
It's weird, I'll get one with a good group and the next target goes to H.
At least I'm keeping everything in the 9-ring.
My two best out of 7.

15 yards

I did correct for the shooting low on subsequent targets, but could not get the grouping tighter, more practice I guess.
