I worked up five pet recipes of 20 rounds each and the wife and I headed off to the range to try out the 'new' 1903A3.

I'm posting the two top loads for anyone who might be interested.

It took nearly 100 rounds of commercial ammo to get the rear sight adjusted but once that happened I think you'll agree the ol' girl shot just fine (especially considering my eyes and glasses).

Please keep in mind, when I try out new loads I shoot a maximum of 50 yards which I did today.

DATA:

Gun: Springfield Remington military 1903A3 30.06
Sights: military steel open with peep type on the rear

Bullet make: Hornady
type: total metal jacketed Boat Tail Spitzer Soft Point
weight: 165 gr.

Powder: IMR 4350
51.5 and 56 gr.

Primer: Winchester

Brass: Varied commercial used

Target: 6 inch graduated circle

It was unusually windy today with gusts up to, I would guess, 25-35 mph.

PS: disregard the 'Speer' bullet note on the target. It was an accident and the bullet type, like I said above, was Hornady...oops, LOL

Second best (in my opinion) load.

Like I said in the previous post the bullet type was Hornady, not Speer as it says on the target.
