8.46s for a supported kneeling 200 yard IDPA silhouette, cold bore. Things to work on: Strong elbow needs to be on a knee, obvious bolt work, follow through, setting up faster, keeping face on gun during reload, remembering to reset turrets before adjusting Things done well: Forend control, trigger control, safety management Predator 308/ZQI/SS10X Hosted here for blog, obligatory #ruger hashtag
If a picture is worth a thousand words, this video will be worth a lot more. Obviously a lot to work on.
This shot was just as high as yesterday’s. And I figured out why.
When I installed the brake and rezeroed after removing/installing the barreled action, I didn’t reset the turrets.
Then, I shot at 200. And forgot to come back down.
The next day, I dialed back “up” to 200. Which put me at 8 total minutes of elevation, without realizing it.
All of this could have been avoided if I hadn’t been lazy, and had reset the turrets right away.
I assumed I would remember to come down and up the correct number of clicks. I assumed wrong.
I suppose the good news is that if I hadn’t made such a rookie mistake, #8 and #9 would have been right in with the rest.
This is exactly the type of reason I wanted to do a 20 shot average group on 20 different days.
