Open sight day with CVA Optima
Not bad! This was my second go around after the sun went behind the mountain and i was able to see my target better. Certainly still need the new glasses to help me out though.

CVA Optima , 295gr HP Powerbelt, 100gr Blackhorn209, CCI 209M primers @ 100 yards.

I did not use my fancy shooting rest either, i used the Caldwell tack driver bag rest, laid in on the ground and i laid down to shoot. I think that Vanguard bipod will be excellent for this kind of shooting when i get her.

The ghost ring rear and globe front sight made things a lot more easier IMO as i could see my entire target. But she looks ready to go as far as i am concerned.

Great Group
Way to go FG! That's a fantastic group, especially with open sights and for not using your best bench set up. Good luck in 2011!!:thumbup:

FG, just trade in those cva's for one of the better Brands like Traditions Performance Firearms or even a Thompson center and
you won't have to worry any longer about your groups staggering all over your targets like they are. :wallbash:

Be nice to see you shoot offhand once in awhile. Bags, rests and bipods make anyone look good!
