It has been a hectic last several months for me and my girlfriend. We each fixed up and sold our homes. Bought one together and moved in. I never want to see another packing box again! So today I made it back to the range for the first time since July. I used my 1942 Sk.Y M39 with a Brenshok mount and a Nikon Monarch 2.5-8 x 28 EER. Love that scope! Hefty winds from behind at about 15 mph. Temp was a sunny 4 degrees F. Good ole Polish LB and a forearm rest was used. Great to be back shooting again.

Good shooting!
Doing it on a day when the temperature was 4 degrees F. definitely puts you in the 'dedicated' class.
Keep shooting, and, we hope you'll have warmer weather for your next efforts.

Another lunch hour range trip on Jan 12. Weather was a little warmer at 21f and still the constant NW winds at 15-20. Used my 1952 K31 with the Swiss Products Aluminum scope mount and muzzle brake. Topped it with a Nikko Stirling 12x44 scope that I hastily installed the night before. Using Factory PRVI 174gr FMJ I walked the shots towards the center. It's been a while since i fired the Swiss and it sure was fun!

Shot my PU sniper. Had to figure out why I was shooting 7 inches to the right of the target. Made the adjustment on the scope and this was the result. I'm happy.

Shot this today with my pawnshop Tula 91/30 with the scout scope mounted to the rear sight dovetail. I think this mod excludes the rifle, in principle, from unmodified-rifle matches. If that's not enough, I didn't have any of the current-generation SRF targets in my range bag, so had to go oldschool. Then, compounding the transgressions, I stuck an orange target dot in the center of the all-black target so I'd have someplace to center the crosshairs. The result:

Pretty hard to score.

I put a blank target behind it and backlit on a clamplight. Makes it possible to kinda see the lines the dot covers up:

Long story short, I make the score for today's target a 93--if that matters with so many strikes against it.

Note that I was shooting 150-grain Sierra SPs over a charge of IMR 7383. The bullets run at just under 2600 fps, and they pretty much hit where they're meant to. I was going to take them up to the 300-yard range, but ran out of time and daylight.

I shot another target in February using some handloads in one of my K31's. The splatter you see across the paper was from a guy shooting at a hanging railroad spike close to my target. He was just nailing that thing using a bolt action .223 from a sitting position. It was pretty impressive to watch even though my target was close to being shredded. :)
