Default Range report.. 25-06

Hi all,

Took the P-H 1200C to the clubs range this afternoon and shot all but one of the factory rounds. First shot the Federal Premium 100 Gr Nosler Ballistic Tip. This ammunition didn't do too well on my "Field test" on Saturday. I shot a 10 round group that went 2 3/8" left and about 1" above POA. The group is rather dissapointing at 1.912" wide and 1.750" high. What is confusing is that 4 shots make one elongated hole yet the other 6 shots are scattered . After a slight scope adjustment I shot the final 4 rounds for a group and it produced a group of 1.097" wide by 1.017" high now although this is very usable accuracy remember this is at 75 Metres (82 yards) not a full 100 yards.

I next tried the more promising Sako 117 Gr Game Head from Saturday's trial. I fired a 3 shot group and was again dissapointed with a group of 1.236" high by 1.034" wide. After allowing the rifle to cool right down I put a freah target up and shot a 10 round group of 1.700" high by 1.615" and again there is a tight group of 4 holes touching in about the same place as the one with the 100 rain bullet .

It will require some more testing but I am wondering if there is an underlying bedding issue. I twill be a couple of weeks before I can do any more testing as I have one round left and I cannot afford to buy more for a while .

Photos of the targets to follow once it's light enough to take them.
Go Get them Floyd!
