Knocking the Rust Off the G19 at 25 Yards

Wow. It's been a couple of weeks (since before my Nashville trip) that I've shot the Glock. My only real excuse is that I haven't had time to fire up the Dillon. But I did that, then shot 10 rounds at the 25 yard steel plate.

 Ignore the extra impacts. Those are old.

Connected 6/10 times. This is a very perishable skill for me, unfortunately. Hopefully I can get it back with some dryfire and consistent practice. More Blue Bullets are en route.

American Predator 308 Cold Bore 19/20

Offhand at 200 yards. Set up with an awesome NPOA, and a generous level of torque between my hands. I've found the torque really reduces the wiggle. A shooter far better than myself taught me that one.

One more to go. Then I have to draw some type of conclusion.

Ruger American Predator 308 Cold Bore #18/20

Number 18 out of 20 cold bore shots with the Ruger American landed almost perfectly on top of shot number three. I almost gave up looking for it and called it a miss, but kept searching because the shot felt good. And there it was.

This shot was taken from the same tripod as the last one, only from the standing position. It's super flexible and made it really hard to get a good NPOA. It worked well enough, though. It still is terrible.

Almost done with the 20 day/200 yard/20 cold bore shot experiment. What should I do next?

Ruger American Predator Cold Bore #16/20

Long hiatus from it all. Traveling sucks for shooting. Here's the day's cold bore shot:

Waaaay down there in the corner. I would consider this a flop. Hardly a vital hit. 

*** 

This was taken at 200 yards from the standing position. Interestingly, it's clustered down near the kneeling shot taken previously. I can't help but wonder if these are in anticipation of recoil. It's easier to lock it all down with solid support.

Ruger American Predator Cold Bore #15/20

200 yards from the kneeling position.

Pulled it badly down into the left quarter.  ZQI is bad ammo. But not that bad. This was allll me.

*** 

I didn't have a natural point of aim, that's for sure. NPOA is still something that's difficult for me to build quickly in positions other than bipod prone with a sandbag.  I was muscling to stay on target, and that never turns out well.

I have so much to work on with positional rifle shooting that it's not even funny.

Most Successful 25 Yard NRA B-8 to Date

Title says it all. All 10 shots for the day in the 8 ring.

I'm very, very happy with this target. Everything is starting to settle in. Getting new glasses was key. 

*** 

Who knew that being able to actually see the target was important? Front sight focus is still very important, I think. I was "bearing down" as hard as I could concentrate to make the above happen, while maxing my grip, minimizing the wiggle and pulling the trigger through it all. 

Once I can get everything in the black on a regular basis, I'll start adding some time pressure. Too much fun.
