Fun Day At The Range 2-15-2012

These targets are both fun and frustrating as heck.

First two are via the Savage-Anschutz 54 Sporter @ 50 yards.
You don't shoot all numbers - just the ones assigned.
My deepest apologies to the third hostage, but I think the new piercing looks good. A lot better than his anyway. :wink:

Then I decided to try the bugs at 100 yards with the Savage 22-250. This was a throwback to another outing some years previous with the same rifle, when a most unfortunate wasp landed on the target just after I'd got zeroed.

Cold bore was on the grasshopper. I was looking for a 1/4" L drift, but I hit dead on POA instead.
After that, I worked the rest of the target L to R and Top to Bottom.

This rifle gives me Hell when it heats up. Note the last two.

Nice Tucker! When is the last time you defouled your barrel? I mean clean out the riflings with solvent and brush? May help with the hot problem.

Actually, I'd just cleaned it before going to the range. The Savage shoots best dirty, so next time should be better.

Thanks. That's pretty cool.

Good shooting. I love shooting the bugs. I have a Thompson Center pro hunter .22-250 that does good with them.
