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).

Pooh on Tom Gaylord. He tests pellet guns. Long range shooting to him is 100 feet. :supergrin:

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