A rainy day at the range today. On a positive note, I had it to myself, and could call a cease fire whenever I wanted!
Aguila (Mexican) 55gr.:
Pretty typical. It’s grouping wasn’t particularly bad, but for some reason it shoots way to the left of anything else I’ve ever used.
There’s a metaphor in here somewhere . . .
Black Hills Seconds 55gr.:
My goal at 100m is a four-inch group, and this met it.
DRS FMJ1F 55gr. reloads:
Still a top performer. But DRS only reloads what it can get, and I haven’t seen them offer this again.
MFS (Russian) Rem SP 62gr.
Blech! Definitely not worth the $.50 per round.
PMC Bronze 55gr.:
Never been more than a plinker.
PMC X-Tac 55gr.:
Wow! That’s tighter than it did at 50m, suspiciously good for what’s always been one of my weakest performers. I may have got it confused with something else. That was the last of my stock, though, and I don’t plan on buying more
Precision Cartridge “Range Pack” 55gr.:
The Brass Kings 55gr.:
Not sure what to make of this. An excellent 3-shot and two way outliers. Wish I could make it shoot 1-inch groups every time!
The Brass Kings “Metal Piercing” 62gr.:
Not worth the $.57 per I paid, but I can’t help wonder if I got my ammo confused again.
WPA (Russia) “Military Classic” HP 62gr.:
Mmm . . . You may remember that this shot low at 50m, but it surprises me that it’s shooting low at 100m. Normally, .223 sighted in at 50m should be still arcing upward at 100m.
All in all, a pretty good day shooting. Everything did better than it has historically; perhaps I’m making marginal improvement as a rifleman?
