Sighting Observation

First off, I'd like to state that after Boomershoot, I found that shooting at paper was unnecessary to grossly sight a rifle. Paint the steel, let your spotter call it, and bring it in to where you want it on the gong. After that, fine tune it on paper. There's no use in shooting at paper if you are off it, and it's easier for the spotter to bring you in if he/she can see dirt plumes, without the obstruction of a target back.

We were at the range Thursday, and ended up only shooting at 2 pieces of paper in 3 hours. Both were three shot groups. A cheap can of spray-paint and range steel can do wonders.

New rifles will be posted on, as soon as the old man gets his shit together and sends it to me.
