I don't think I've taken an off-hand hunting shot more than 100 yards with a rifle. The ones at that distance are usually woodchucks.
Pretty sure I could put an off-hand rifle shot, first shot, in a 4" circle if you were to ask me to do it. With my scoped .30-06 sporter mentioned above. Might have to allow an inch or two for the internet conversion
I want to buy a national match type AR, and plan on doing more rifle shooting. Iron sighted at various distances, certainly at 300 yards off-hand. Not sure if I'll look for competitions much. Just some local club stuff for the fun of it.
Point being that .30-06 is accurate enough for my hunting requirements, even though we won't win any benchrest competitions.
Do you find that practicing at 100 yds makes a "real" shot at 50 yds easier than at 100?
"Oh bother" said Pooh, as he punched the magazine release...
In some peoples minds "What if?" is just as real as What Is.
Think good thoughts about Ronny moving to the Netherlands ASAP
