COLD target shooting!

Brrrr! It was cold at the range today. I wanted to do a little shooting since I hadn't done any since killing my 4x4 whitetail in November. I wanted to be sure everything is "on" in case I get an invitation to hunt on a ranch for elk damage control. Shot my 300 WSM and 270 WSM (with new loads). It was windy and 18 degrees by the time I got there. Much too cold and windy for trying to shoot tight groups, but every shot landed in a kill zone within an inch to three inches of where I aimed. Let's just say that any elk out to 300 yards would be in a heap of trouble... hopefully in a heap, period. Now, if I can just thaw out!!

you dont need an excuse to go to the range.I love going to the range .all those different guns.meeting liked minded individuals.shooting whats not to love,.good job on keeping up with the necessary skill needed in quick,clean, kills Got to go myself haven't been since the day before gun season .

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
