That's the best part about doing it on private land, we just speed down in the biggie and back. Don't have to wait on your breathing to slow again that way.

I did do one today. Looks like a node is in the 53.9 zone. I will do a seating depth test next. Then after that tune the action.

Well I started to shoot this again yesterday and didn't even finish it. Where I normally shoot 100 yards was nasty with all the freeze thaw going on so I bumped the target back some to get on firm ground and grass. So it ended up being more like 115-120 yards because I didn't think it would be fair to move it closer. Then the wind started really gusting and was moving the target several inches back and forth in a pendgelum motion which really messed with vertical stringing. The extra yardage had me shooting a tad low plus opened my groups up some. I was not pleased at all. I quite wasting ammo after abou 8-10 shots. Maybe I can squeeze in another try on a calmer day at 100 yards before the date you posted.

Love this West Virginia weather. Yesterday was sunny, high in the 60's and I was shooting this at my house in a tshirt around 2 PM or so. when I left shortly after dark it was snowing quarter size flakes and had 1-1/2" of snow on the ground.
