Range Report

Me and the Old Man made it out to the range last Tuesday. We had set a narrow range of tasks that we wished to complete.

First off would be siting in the M1A with its new glass. This didn't go so well. It appears that, between the additional height of the mount and the additional height of see-through rings, the glass was too far above the bore. Initially, the point of impact was about 4 feet above the point of aim at 100 yards. That's a shitload of MOA. We bottomed out the MOA on the scope and got it zeroed at 650 yards.

Not going to work.

We've got some A.R.M.S. throw-ring scope rings on the way from Fulton Armory.

I figure if these fuck with the rear NM apperture sight, I can use some Weaver spacers to bring them up a little.

The other objective was to verify that my .308 and .300 WSM loads were good. They both grouped great.

The .308 is a little lighter than the Federal Gold Medal match loads (i.e. an inch low at 400 yards.)

All in all, I'm happy with the loads and these are the ones I'll be sticking with for Boomershoot.

Remember that the Night Force scopes have 100MOA internal adjustment....
