    I did not shoot very well when I went to shoot Saturday. I could not get comfortable at my friends make shift bench and I kept moving at the point I pulled the trigger. I hit paper out to 500yds and when I shot right I hit it at 600yds but that is all I can say about a very poor day of shooting. I will bring my own bench next time but I had fun shooting with Jerry, he is a good friend.

    So, with that bad shooting day in my craw I decided to make sure I had my hunting load tweaked like I like it. So, on my way to work this morning, I stopped by the range to sight-in my rifle with my hunting load.

    I had fired 60 rounds through my rifle and decided last night to clean it before I went to the range this morning to sight-in and also to foul my barrel with five rounds for this hunting season. I believe my rifle, load and me are ready for this year. What a way to start my day, having a five shot group like this out of a completely clean barrel. Sure says a lot for the quality of barrel on my 300Win Mag 116 FHSS Savage Weather Warrior.

  2. The same thing happened to me last year pre shooting my Ruger hawkeye in 308 before deer season.
    My hunting buddy brought along a rickety table which made it pretty difficult to get the groups I was expecting, but finally did.
    CR thats a fantastic group you have pictured. Way to go !!!

    Thanks ArkansasHunter, I believe I am ready for this season of hunting. It won't be the rifles fault if I don't make the shot. :)

    Thanks WLew, I believe you are right about it being hard to beat an out of the box savage.

    So, if I miss the game I am hunting, then what you are saying is "IT AIN'T THE RIFLES FAULT" :bigok:
