First time at a 300m range yesterday, the rain was steady after the 4hour long orientation ended at 1pm and I could shoot.
Sky Plant Cloud Grass Gas

Plant Land lot Wood Grass Grassland


5 shots, 100m with the Ruger Precision 300 Winchester Magnum, the only rifle I brought due to time constraints.
Font Pattern Rectangle Symmetry Circle


200m was fairly simple to find on paper.
Font Pattern Circle Space Soil



Climbing to find 300m.
I could not see the hits on the white part of paper.
Note to self, next time overlap dark paper for 200+, sight-ins.

I am confident the RPR will hold 4-5" groups @300m for me on a good day, probably an inch better if I use a rear sand bag rest.
Next time, I'll use a rear bag rest or my Caldwell LeadSled2 rest with 25# on it (but that will make it too easy I think), gotta stay focused on the breathing if I want to improve.

Great shooting Dyno! That is one sweet rig. 馃檪馃憤
Thanks OEA, appreciate it.
Conditions were not ideal and I sat on a provided bench, added a 2"x12"x12" that was in the area, my hoodie and coat to get a decent shooting position.
Safety glasses were fogging up big time, even after I spit on the lenses and rubbed it in LOL.
Gotta get some decent anti-fog spray.
Come springtime, will go after 500+ meters.
Time to focus on getting 25/25 in trap.
I cannot beat 22/25, even after changing chokes and trying top/bottom barrels.
I swear I had 23 last two weeks and the scorer jacked me LOLOL!
Honestly, I really should pattern the darned O/U so my own bad.

Looks promising!!

Im sure that rig will do better. Just need more trigger time and the right load.
That's what I was thinking, along with shooting in the prone position. General rule of thumb is that the closer you get to the ground the better you will shoot.

Wish I could, ground was soaked.
I had to use Lane 3 cuz it had the clearest shot at 200m.
The 100m berm is too darn high, can barely see the targets at 200m.
Maintenance guys musta added too much soil, it'll settle I'm sure.
But, it's a start and I'm sure I can stretch the Ruger out quite a bit more.

What range is that dynamo ?
East Elgin Sportsmen. Aylmer, ON.
I was shooting on this one:
I had to wait for Trap to finish at 4pm, luckily the rain was so bad, they stopped at 1:30pm.
Otherwise, you may get beaned by some #7.5 shot LOL.
So I shot the 100m on a different range and moved over when Trap stopped for 200, 300.
They have archery and allow crossbows, too.
Indoors archery. too.
Bring your own target bag.
They said I could shoot their 3D targets but doubt I'd ever pull the 16" arrows from a Havoc out easily.

Yup, two hours drive but well worth it, IMO.
Wow, don't tempt me LOLOL.
I can bring a lot of fun toys to shoot but that Ruger would wake the neighbours!
I used to shoot on Buddy's farm about 5 minutes from the Amherstburg Target Sports range (100m maximum) but he is now on oxygen :( and cannot get out much so i don't bother him except to chat.
Best trap/skeet shooter I know, besides one guy at the Club who powders darned near every clay, pisses me off LOL,JK!

Slapped a Vortex Golden Eagle, 15-60x52mm on the RPR 300 WM and took her for a 100 meter spin on Saturday.
One shot to see where the 25m rough-in was from the indoor range, 2nd dialed a little low then 4 stacked nice and tight.
Federal Match 190gr.
Font Line Wood Gas Symmetry


Was cold as heck but the Vortex Golden Eagle is one helluva reason to get my butt outdoors.
Best scope I have ever used to date.
Had it pegged at 60x, same as my spotting scope.
Can't wait to take her to 300m nearby then 500+m come summer.

Took my favs out today for a quick cleaning.
Bottom to top:
RPR, 300WM
Tikka T3X Lite, 300WM
Savage 110 MDT Chassis, 223 Rem
Browning BAR MK3 Stalker, 243 Win
Savage 10, MDT Chassis, 308 Win
