Well, I finally made it to the Gravel piles and had a wonderful time. Couldn't stop grinning once I got home! It was a great day, a little breezy but not bad at all. I had the 25 cal M11, the 22 cal Outlaw, and I brought my Chief out too. All I have to shoot on is a tripod, I'm still waiting for my shooting bench to come in the mail, so it was a bit of a challenge, for me anyway, and I'm out of practice too! I was shooting at 50-55 yards.

First up was the M11 and I was shooting the King and King Heavy. They were Ok but not the best, then I switched to try out the 25 cal predator polymag and was really happy with those, giving me 7 shots out of 9 at 0.7" and then two shots I let get away from me (first target pic). Another friend bought one and had the opposite effect, with the king and king heavy doing well, so I guess it depends on the barrel. The M11 was set to shoot around 870fps with the Kings.

Next I moved to the Outlaw. The velocity was around 960fps with 14.3gr pellets, so pretty hot! It was shooting great with the JSB 15.89, the Hades and especially liked the H&N Barracuda.
The Benjamin Hollowpoint didn't do so well, and neither did the Skenco UltraShock. That was disappointing about the Skenco, as others have reported great accuracy with them.
I shot all 11 shots in the magazine in these last two pictures and both ended up at 0.9" though the Hades had two fliers outside that, but I might have just pulled them. The Barracuda were in the same hole for the first 4 shots then it seemed I lost my touch and spread the hole out a bit. Still I'm really happy with how it was shooting. With my Chief I wasn't doing any better than the Outlaw and my Chief is a sniper if I have a good rest, getting 3/8" groups at 50 in the past. So lots of promise in these guns for sure!
All in all it was just so wonderful to get out and shoot! The summer has been cruising by and I hope to get a few more opportunities before it's over!
Cheers,
Wes ImageImageImageImage

Nice Weather, nice place, nice shooting!

Try some ultra far distance shooting next time? Like 100yards, 200 yards... You can check out the extreme performance of your scopes ~

Yeah! Lots of fun!
Yep I'll try 75 yards next time. I'll have to see if 100 yards will be manageable with the space I have. =)

I think you need to get a small folding bike just to get to the distance and setup the target.

Lol, well, I'm hoping once I get my table/shooting bench I'll have some better results, along with some more practice.
The slugs are due to arrive today! I'm interested in the M11 performance with them and will be going to 100 yards if possible with those.

Awesome shooting range you have there....lots here too but at least you won't have to be concerned with overly curious black bears and wolves like we do here...
