    Shot this group today at 200 yards.
    25.9 grains BL-C(2)
    55 Grain jacketed bullet.
    Mixed brass
    Federal premium primers.

    It was snowing, but with light wind.

    Rifle-Howa 1500 Bolt action with a BSA Sweet .223 scope.

    I generally do not shoot groups. Keep in mind I am almost as old as Jack-that would be just a bit younger then dirt. Jack of course is the same age as dirt.

    You poked those with a pencil, didn't you?

    I figured he poked 'em, but not with a pencil... and from two inches away.

    Snow will deflect a 223 bullet. That's why our troops had so much trouble in Viet Nam. Shoot them when it's not snowing and your groups will tighten up to an acceptable level.

    Lately, I have gotten interested in the single cold-bore shot. Nothing else really matters (to me).

    Jack, if that was the case they would have been the size of cannonballs.
