I zero'd the scope I put on my Savage mark II today at 50yds in a 10mph breeze coming from over my right shoulder at about 45 degrees. As you see my shots were all over the place but mostly up and left. Image
The couple of large holes is my C9 at the same distance, offhand but sitting down. Those were purely luck. The one big hole at the top is where I taped a penny. This picture is the after picture. as are all these. Here's the penny stuck in the hole after I found it.
Image
Here's a picture back to the bench. Image
The one on the far right next to the snow. And here's a picture of the penny at 50yrds off my pistol hard case as a rest on the bench, it was the 20th shot after starting to try it. Damn wind.

Shot with a $99 Savage MarkII with a Simmons Deerfield Riflescope 3-9x32 and Remington bulk hollow points. Next week ...winning the title! :yes2: :thumb:

You forgot to mention that that 10 mph wind was only about 35 degrees.

I'm watching from my nice warm car next time ;)

OH yeah ! That too. :whistle: Trying to find a calm day in Iowa in the spring is like trying to find a virgin in a whorehouse.

I couldn't either! But that candy store 9x scope brought it in pretty close. Also showed me how unsteady I was LOL. When I try at the required distance I'm gonna use bricks or something a little less squirrely as a rest. Standing the plastic hard case on edge and resting my wrist on it wasn't much of a steady rest but I figured it out. This is only the third time I've ever used a scope in my life and the first time was a few weeks ago. The second was when I got this one mounted last Monday and I got it close to zero at about 22yds. Today I worked on it at 50yds to get used to it. I've been reading a book about bench rest shooting and it's given me some good insight on how to work the wind and zero the scope better. But putting it to practical use seemed to elude me. So anyway, It might not be next week but I'll nail it. And then I'll nail it again to prove it wasn't chance. :yes2: :funny:

Good Luck Drift, Hope ya get it before I do! Ya might just use it as witness and use the irons instead. I'm gonna try that. Might or might not work. Might have to circle the penny with something bright just to find it way out there! ;) I had this one stuck on with a piece of inside out duct tape.

might have to try that.. and i know what ya mean about scopes. i shoot so much better with irons.. with a scope the slightest twitch or movement will throw your cross hairs all over the target.. with irons i feel more steady as the front bead or blade doesnt seem to move at all without all the magnification. easier to calm down and shoot. but definately wanna see how the savage will do at Distance

Make those 5 count! I'm using the Rem bulk HP's . I had three FTfire's today out of the box. I only shot about 50 or so rounds all together out of the .22. That's not good. Maybe I should throw my hands over my head and run down the street like a madman screaming that Remington boolits are Crap and they are gonna kill the human race if we continue using them !! :rofl: Ya know? This is how rumors get started ! :thumb: :funny: :laugh:
